Maxine Bruhns, who has been the director of Pitt’s renowned Nationality Classrooms for more than 50 years, has been called “one of the most interesting human beings you will ever meet.” She is only the second director to oversee these remarkable University treasures, and she has coordinated the design, funding, and dedication of 21 new nationality classrooms since becoming director in 1965.  Alumni are invited to join her for a tour of the classrooms as she shares her unrivaled knowledge of the secrets of the Cathedral of Learning and its famed classrooms.

Following the tour, lunch will be served at the University Club and entertainment will be provided by dancers from the Philippine-American Performing Arts of Greater Pittsburgh.

PITT DAY2017 Forweb

Thank you to the Pitt alumni, faculty, staff, students, and friends who were able to join us for an opportunity to influence state lawmakers and tell your University of Pittsburgh story at Pitt Day in Harrisburg on May 23, 2018.

Pitt Day in Harrisburg is the annual advocacy day at the state Capitol. Pennsylvania continues to face budget challenges and it is critical that our elected officials hear from you the importance of public higher education and the impact Pitt makes.

Transportation from each Pitt campus and meals are provided. Attendees have opportunities to meet with legislators in small groups, tour the Capitol, visit exhibits, participate in a career panel with Pitt alumni in government, and attend a dessert reception.

Are you interested in being informed of future opportunities to collaborate with elected officials and others in support of the University of Pittsburgh? Sign up today to become an advocate and Stand With Pitt.

Find volunteer opportunities through PittServes, a University-wide initiative that engages University of Pittsburgh students in meaningful service to the community on a local, national, and international scale. Our focus on sustainability, education and community development allows us to increase student community service and support our surrounding community!
