The Pittsburgh Alumni Chapter exists to promote John Carroll University and foster positive relationships between alumni in and around the Steel City. With over 1,700 alumni living within the chapter, the Pittsburgh chapter ranks as the third largest group of alumni in on the worldwide and the largest in Pennsylvania. Getting involved with the Pittsburgh Alumni Chapter is one of the easiest ways for alumni to stay connected to John Carroll. Driven by a chapter board of volunteers, the chapter works to provide meaningful and engaging program based around the five core components of John Carroll chapter programming. They are as follows:

  • Service and Civic Engagement Opportunities
  • Leadership/Professional Development
  • Educational/Cultural/Spiritual Programming
  • Social Events
  • Alumni-in-Admissions

The volunteer corps of the chapter meets monthly to discuss and plan upcoming events and topics that aid in the development of the chapter, its membership and the University. Over the past year, the chapter has hosted a number of happy hours, provided service at the Greater Pittsburgh Foodbank, hosted a wine tasting in Gibsonia and a tailgate and outing to the Pirates game. The chapter also they plays and important role in the annual Presidential reception in Pittsburgh and with the recruitment of new students.
