Panther Days of Pride

The Pitt-Bradford Staff Association encourages all Staff, Faculty, students and alumni to join us on the first Friday of every month for Panther Days of Pride, and wear Pitt blue and gold or apparel that bears the university’s name.

Additional Panther Days of Pride dedicated to promoting the traditions and spirit that embody the Pitt-Bradford experience will coincide with annual special events. The year-long celebration is designed to show our pride in support of Pitt-Bradford by proudly wearing our school colors. Also, by participating in the Panther Days of Pride, we help to increase public awareness of Pitt-Bradford, celebrate the university's achievements, and acknowledge our high-quality academics.

We encourage the entire campus community to participate in the Panther Days of Pride by wearing blue & gold, Pitt ties, scarves or apparel to their classes and workplaces. The Panther Shop will offer you a 25% discount if you mention you're purchasing the product to help celebrate the Panther Days of Pride and you show your faculty/staff id. Additionally, the Staff Association will randomly award prizes for getting “caught” wearing Pitt Pride apparel.

Please keep in mind that participating in any Panther Day of Pride is subject to the approval of your supervisor.
