Campus Beautification Program
The campus beautification program was established to enhance the natural and alluring features of the Pitt-Greensburg campus. Some of the areas highlighting the new program are the addition of more plants and flowers and seasonally held clean-up days. More program topics to be enacted are forthcoming as plans continue to develop.
Friends of the Millstein Library
The Friends of the Millstein Library are alumni, retired faculty and staff members, and members of the community who are interested in promoting and supporting the library and its activities. Monies raised help to provide a $500 scholarship to a Pitt-Greensburg student pursuing graduate study in library or information science.
The Green Scholar Program is designed to provide opportunities for Pitt-Greensburg’s best students to acquire research experience by working with faculty on scholarly projects in each of three academic divisions. Green Scholars receive a stipend for their research work; the program allows students to focus on their education rather than working at part-time jobs in fields unrelated to their academic majors. Faculty benefit from the collaboration of a “junior” research partner. Students are nominated to be a “Green Scholar” to serve during their junior and senior years.
Pitt-Greensburg Staff Association
The Pitt-Greensburg Staff Association provides representation and leadership for non-union, non-faculty personnel and promotes positive working relationships.
The President’s Discretionary Fund
This fund serves as the “default fund” for undesignated gifts. Revenue from this fund supports projects and programs that require additional funding.
Recruitment of International Students
This new division of the International Learning Opportunities program aims to create a truly global environment right here on campus and will focus on the recruitment and retention of students from other countries. This fund will cover operational expenses and staffing for the program, which will provide the international students with a warm, friendly, and welcoming environment upon their arrival and throughout their entire education at Pitt-Greensburg. The goal of this program is to provide a mutually fulfilling and enriching experience for both the international students and other Pitt-Greensburg students who will share classes, residence halls, clubs, and social activities.
Seed Money for Faculty Scholarship
This fund provides financial support for faculty to expand their own areas of expertise, conduct quality research, pursue creative projects, and to engage students in scholarship beyond the classroom.
Seed Money for Staff Development
The account was created to support professional development for the campus staff. It focuses on campus priorities and departmental needs by providing opportunities for staff to attend professional conferences which would advance the mission of Pitt-Greensburg.
The Student Services fund is used to support co-curricular initiatives that increase leadership and community service opportunities for students. The fund has also been used to assist students experiencing a temporary yet immediate financial emergency. Your support of this fund can make the difference in the retention of a student.
