Register online to participate at this year’s Pitt Day in Harrisburg on Tuesday, March 26.

The business-casual event is an opportunity for the Pitt community — including faculty, staff and students — to tell state legislators about the University’s impact and urge their continued support. Participants will have a chance to take part in activities including meeting with elected officials, touring the Capitol and a legislator reception with Chancellor Patrick Gallagher.

“Participation from students, faculty and staff across all campuses truly makes a difference,” said Paul Supowitz, vice chancellor for community and governmental relations. “This interaction with legislators is the best way to convey the importance of state investment in Pitt and supports our year-round efforts to communicate with elected officials.”

Read more about the day’s agenda, including transportation (which is provided from each Pitt campus) and parking info, meals and regional campus registration links, at the Stand With Pitt website. The deadline to register for the event is Friday, March 8.

Faculty and staff who can’t attend the event in Harrisburg in person but still want to advocate for Pitt can do so in other ways, including contacting legislators via phone or email to share their Pitt story. CGR staff can also help you find your elected official and connect you with their Capitol office.

The event is coordinated by Pitt Advocates, the Office of Community and Governmental Relations and the Pitt Alumni Association.
