A Message from the President

Dear Alumni and Friends:

Thank you for visiting our web site. I extend my personal invitation to return to campus often, whether via the web or in person. Our alumni and friends are always welcome!

It is through your generosity that Pitt-Johnstown has emerged as a thriving undergraduate college of the University of Pittsburgh, itself a world-class institution. The Pitt-Johnstown record of excellence is reflected in the outstanding accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff; in the achievements of more than 20,000 alumni; and in the satisfaction of employers who hire our RealWorld-ready graduates.

It is through your continued generosity that we will be able to maintain our momentum, our enthusiasm and our ambitions. This is an exciting time, and I invite you to share our Mountain Cat Pride in Pitt-Johnstown’s role as a vital knowledge center and a leading contributor to the area’s educational, social, cultural, and economic environment.

I believe it is most appropriate to acknowledge the rich legacy created by generations of alumni, students, staff and faculty, and by the generous support from you and our friends in the community. I invite you to be a part of a future that will further distinguish our university and enhance our reputation in the region and beyond.

Thank you,

Jem Spectar, PhD
President
