Parents' Executive Council

An Opportunity to Lead
The Parents' Executive Council is a leadership council comprised of dedicated parents seeking a closer connection to University leadership and their fellow Scranton Parents.  Parents are asked to join The University of Scranton as colleagues in our mission to build an environment which supports the education and formation of Men and Women for and with Others. Consider your impact through participating as a Parents' Executive Council member.   Please contact the Director of Parent Programs for more information about becoming a member.
  • 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.
