University of Pittsburgh Bradford
50th Anniversary

If you had been on our campus 50 years ago, you wouldn't have recognized it. Pitt-Bradford didn't have its own campus but was comprised of a hodgepodge of buildings in downtown Bradford. There were only 288 students. And the university offered only two-year degrees. 

Fast forward 50 years. We have our own beautiful campus. More than 1,600 students are enrolled, and we offer 37 bachelor’s degrees, five associate degrees, and more than 50 minors, concentrations and pre-professional programs. We have much to celebrate as we turn 50. 

While we have much to celebrate, we have much to be grateful for, particularly to those key forward-thinking founders who saw the need for an institution of higher education in this region and the residents of this area who supported it.
