Support Our Students
There are many ways for you to help students during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Help students who are in immediate need of financial assistance by supporting the PGAA Student Emergency Fund. This helps a student with the cost of books, student and lab fees, rent, travel, and food during extraordinary circumstances.
Give to the Technology for the Future Fund and help increase the campus' digital infrastructure and keep the technology systems up-to-date which is so important to remote learning.
Volunteer for a Zoom career panel. The PGAA is partnering with Career Services to provide students, especially the Class of 2020, with advice as they navigate a new virtual job landscape. Alumni are especially needed in the these areas: criminal justice, psychology, history, biology, management/accounting, information sciences, chemistry, social sciences, applied math, communication, visual and performing arts.
Join Pitt Commons and become a mentor to a Class of 2020 graduate.
Share Your COVID-19 Hero Stories
Whether they are working in the healthcare field or making masks from home, our alumni are serving and caring for people in their communities. We know that we have HEROES in our midst.
