The President's Circle

The President’s Circle was founded by a group of dedicated University supporters 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.
