The President's Circle


Founded by a group of dedicated University of Scranton supporters, The President's Circle was inspired by the tradition of leadership immortalized by our founding father, Bishop William G. O’Hara, D.D.

The President’s Circle comprises an exceptional core of alumni, parents and friends who believe in Scranton’s mission. President’s Circle donors embody the Magis—a restless desire for excellence grounded in gratitude.  Their leadership encourages others to give as it helps Scranton to remain a home for creativity, faith, innovation and inspiration.

The University has developed into a nationally prominent and respected institution because of its commitment to the mission of providing educational opportunities for deserving, talented and motivated students regardless of household income.  More than $15 million in merit-based scholarships is awarded annually to current students.

Donors making the annual philanthropic commitment at the President’s Circle level of $1,000 or more help provide the University with resources necessary to enhance every aspect of campus life and insure The University of Scranton maintains its position at the forefront of Catholic higher education.
