Parents' Executive Council
Aboutplus or minus
Ignatian spirituality at The University of Scranton is deeply rooted in a strong commitment to excellence, to community, to service, and the desire to accomplish for the greater good. These same qualities describe the special group of parent leaders we are seeking to serve on the Parents’ Executive Council.
The work of the council and its members advances three Jesuit ideals that are at the core of the University’s mission:
Cura Personalis – being women and men for and with others
Magis – a restless desire for excellence grounded in gratitude
Rei Solicitudo – carefully shepherding our resources
Your participation will impact the Scranton student experience by advancing the mission and vision of the University.
