Community Connections

Building strong partnerships with Pittsburgh’s business communityalumni park students

For 50-plus years, Point Park University has built its reputation on offering a strong education to its students, as well as building steadfast relationships with its neighbors and supporters.  As a matter of fact, Point Park took its relationship with friends of the University to a new level in 2014, by offering a new and exciting “win-win” initiative known as Community Connections.

Community Connections is an opportunity for your business to partner with Point Park University to, ultimately, have a greater impact in our region.

Like your business, Point Park is an integral part of the city. Our campus is a growing, multiblock living and learning hub, where nearly 4,000 students interact with businesspeople, industry professionals and city residents:

  • As one of the largest landowners in Downtown Pittsburgh, the University contributes more than $74 million to the downtown and regional economies annually.
  • More than 83 percent of our graduates who responded to a recent survey continue to live and work in the greater Pittsburgh area.
  • Approximately 150 employers participate in Point Park’s fall and spring career fairs for student internships and employment.
