History

Founding

The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford was founded in 1963 in response to a shortage of higher education institutions in the North central / Northwestern region of Pennsylvania. While Pennsylvania State University had previously offered courses in Bradford in 1933 and 1948, these arrangements lasted only a year and, at the time of Pitt Bradford’s establishment, there were no opportunities for tertiary learning in the surrounding six-county area.

To address this void, local leaders reached out to University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) Chancellor Edward Litchfield, advocating for a permanent presence in the region. During the early correspondence, Litchfield was evaluating the feasibility of several sites in Western Pennsylvania with the goal of increasing the University’s footprint.

Pitt had previous success establishing extension centers and junior colleges, particularly the Johnstown Junior College in Cambria County in 1927, a model which served as the inspiration for the Penn State commonwealth campuses, and which the Litchfield administration now planned to incorporate into Pitt’s expansion.

Is Pitt Bradford a party school?

Not very many parties, and it is hard to make friends if you don’t start at the beginning.

Your “fun” activities often mean going to Sheetz or Walmart unless you venture to Erie or Buffalo. I’m in my 3rd of 4 semesters at Pitt Bradford.
