Pitt Alumni Network of Western PA (PANWPA)

Pitt Alumni Network of W.PA

Hello and a warm welcome to our Western PA alumni.

As the new director, my goal is to make it easy for you to get involved and stay connected to Pitt and your fellow alumni. The Pitt Alumni Association will be offering more programs developed exclusively for our Western PA alumni, and I’ll be making sure you are aware of those and other great events that are happening on and near campus.

If you have any questions or comments—or if you have any ideas to share, I’d love to hear them. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Hail to Pitt!

Upcoming Events


The Pitt Alumni Association is proud to present Pitt✦Stops, a new series of monthly events for local alumni that will be held in distinctive locations throughout Western Pennsylvania.

In addition to excellent opportunities to network with Pitt faculty, staff, and fellow alumni, Pitt✦Stops will feature informative presentations about a broad range of timely and popular topics. Many of the same Pitt faculty experts who bring academic excellence and innovative research to our classrooms and campus are now making Pitt✦Stops throughout our community.
