The Professional Connections are specialized groups who provide a source of information and support for alumni and students. Current groups include the President’s Business Council (PBC) and the Medical Alumni Council (MAC). These groups organize special events, continuing education programs and networking opportunities.
President’s Business Council (PBC)The President’s Business Council (PBC) was formed by the University and a prominent group of alumni and friends with the purpose of advancing the mission of the University. The PBC fulfills the interests of the University and of these alumni and friends in the business community to form an organized, national affiliation that strengthens the Scranton network in the business sectors. Membership on the PBC is open to alumni and friends who can help in accomplishing its objectives.
Medical Alumni Council (MAC)The Medical Alumni Council seeks to assist undergraduate pre-health professional students through education in health-related programs, networking assistance and guidance on admission to health professional schools, and access to role models in various medical careers. The MAC also keeps alumni health practitioners informed about campus developments, nominates students and alumni for scholarships and awards, conducts symposia for alumni in the health professions, and encourages financial support for the University from these alumni. The Medical Alumni Council is dedicated to securing The University of Scranton's place as the recognized leader in pre-health professional education in Pennsylvania.
Council of Alumni Lawyers (CAL)The Council of Alumni Lawyers seeks to advance the mission and reputation of The University of Scranton by providing the University and its students with an accessible and engaged network of alumni lawyers. Members of the Council utilize their experience and education, and leverage their professional networks, to actively support faculty, staff and administrators in leading the educational and professional development of Scranton students who plan to enter the field of law. The Council also serves as an example to the broader alumni community, encouraging greater involvement and investment in the University’s strategic priorities and student success.
