Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Spirituality is at the core of our mission as a Catholic, Jesuit institution of higher learning. The chief characteristics embedded in the Ignatian vision include: the Ignatian concept of magis, or greatness; seeking God in all things; liberal education; service of faith and the promotion of justice; and contemplation in action.

The United Way is taking action by bringing people and community resources together to address the most pressing issues we face today. Through partnerships with public and private institutions, United Way is targeting the root causes of social issues to effect real and lasting change.

The United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties promotes the education, financial stability and health of every person in our community by fighting for:

  • Education- for school readiness, academic achievement, quality out of school time and development of new skills and knowledge
  • Financial Stability- for financial competency, workforce development, community benefits, family sustaining employment, income supports, saving and assets, manageable expenses, and affordable housing
  • Health- for safe homes and healthy community, healthy eating and physical activity, development of healthy behaviors, and access to health care

We are pleased to announce the start of The University of Scranton’s United Way fundraising campaign on Wednesday, October 4, 2017. You are all invited to learn more about United Way programs and services in the DeNaples Center from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. 

This year, we again ask you to join us in making the decision to donate to the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties. Donation information, including convenient payroll deduction will be available on the my.scranton portal “Employee Tab” under “University Giving,” on the Office of Human Resources website at http://www.scranton.edu/hr/hr-news/united-way.shtml or by contacting the Office of Human Resources at (570) 941-7767.
