A Campus-wide Plan for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Alumni and Community Engagement

Alumni Engagement

  • Improve our understanding of the undergraduate and graduate student experiences of alumni, including those from historically underrepresented and underserved groups, gathering and sharing insights that may help guide future student programming. 
  • Gather feedback from alumni regarding how their Scranton education impacted their understanding and engagement with diversity and inclusion issues in their post-graduate lives and professional experiences. 
  • Outreach to alumni from traditionally underrepresented and underserved groups to engage with and mentor current students.
  • Support growth in affinity and other alumni peer-to-peer engagement opportunities through the creation of alumni societies for historically underrepresented groups.

Engagement with the Local Community

  • In collaboration with community partners, identify existing and emerging needs and concerns of underrepresented and underserved groups, and create strategies to address them.
  • Continue to serve as a resource, convener, and collaborator on matters related to diversity, equity and inclusion in the Scranton area, highlighting University programming, offerings, and efforts that seek to improve understanding of our histories and experiences. 
  • Collaborate with the City of Scranton and civic entities to discuss issues our students, in particular, those from underrepresented groups, experience in the community.
  • Building upon existing college preparatory and learning enrichment initiatives, identity ways to expand programming for underrepresented K-12 students in northeastern Pennsylvania.
  • Expand our leadership and colleagueship within the regional higher education community, and across our AJCU network, through participation in gathering/conference/symposia dedicated to this purpose.
