Summer Conference Assistants
Who We Are
The Office of Conference & Event Services is housed in the Division of University Advancement. University Advancement engages alumni, parents, students and friends in a lifelong relationship with the University and generates private philanthropic support from these groups in support of the University mission. Through their generosity, alumni, parents and friends support student scholarships, capital projects, academic initiatives and University mission and ministries.
Our department supports these endeavors throughout the year, supporting events from Alumni Board Meetings to Presidential Christmas Receptions to the annual Carlesimo Golf Tournament & Award Dinner. The summer is our real time to shine, however, when we have the opportunity to show off our beautiful campus and superior service to large outside groups.
What We Do
Over the course of the summer, The University of Scranton will host roughly 5,000 guests through various conferences and camps. Groups range from religious organizations that have been with us for over 30 years to camps who are joining us for the first time.
Our goal in Conference & Event Services is to make our guests feel at home while they are on campus and to offer superior customer service. At the same time, it is important that we uphold the University’s mission in everything we do:
The University of Scranton is a Catholic and Jesuit university animated by the spiritual vision and the tradition of excellence characteristic of the Society of Jesus and those who share its way of proceeding. The University is a community dedicated to the freedom of inquiry and personal development fundamental to the growth in wisdom and integrity of all who share its life.
