Student Development Officers


....leaders on campus making a difference 

Like all institutions of higher learning, The University of Scranton relies on private philanthropy to meet the important priorities of higher education.  Gifts made to The Royal Fund at Scranton provide critical operating revenue that ensures an outstanding Scranton experience for students living and learning on this campus. The Royal Fund supports everything from scholarships, to clubs and activities, to the technology and equipment that you can use on campus!

To help us meet our important goals, The University of Scranton's Student Development Officers contact alumni, parents and friends by phone to build and strengthen relationships, while inviting their support for The Royal Fund.

We raise money that is crucial to the lives of our students and faculty every day.

The University of Scranton Phonathon team contacts alumni, parents and friends by phone to build and strengthen important relationships, while inviting their philanthropic support for the University. These contributions are used to meet the University's most pressing needs; providing scholarship assistance, maintaining the beautiful campus, renovating and providing new student housing, science labs and classrooms and providing the resources needed to maintain a world class faculty. Gifts to the University help us maintain Scranton's commitment to social service, small student-to-faculty ratios, need-blind admissions, and tradition of academic excellence.
