Parents' Executive Council

Advancing Our Mission

The Parents’ Executive Council is a leadership group dedicated to advancing the mission of The University of Scranton.  Members are ambassadors who are deeply committed to the growth and development of University of Scranton students both now and in the future.

The Parents’ Executive Council was established in 2014. Over the years it has grown in both size and influence.  PEC members develop a deeper appreciation for the experiences their students are having at The University of Scranton, establish relationships with fellow parents, and have an opportunity to give back to a university that gives their students so much.

The PEC offers Scranton parents ways to be well informed, highly involved, and deeply invested in The University of Scranton.
