Director of The Fund for Albright
Albright’s Parents Leadership Council (APC) serves as a bridge of communication between Albright College parents and the College’s administration, faculty, student body, alumni, and friends. Members of the APC serve as spokespeople for the entire parent constituency and as such are parent leaders in advising and financially supporting Albright College.
The purpose of APC is to enrich and enhance the educational experience of Albright College students by supporting the College in three key areas:
The membership of APC shall consist of parents of currently enrolled students at Albright College as well as parents who served on the APC while their students were enrolled and whose students are currently in their first year post-graduation. APC members work closely with the Director of The Fund for Albright.
I – Parent Admission Contact Team (A-PACT) Committee
The A-PACT Committee represents a cooperative effort between the APC and the Admission Office for the purpose of utilizing the skills of APC members in the Albright College admission process. By serving as a well-informed local contact for parents of prospective and/or accepted students, A-PACT is able to foster and increase the feeling of community within and beyond the actual grounds of Albright College. In addition, A-PACT members can supplement the Admission Office alumni program (Parents and Alumni Seeking Students or PASS) by providing an Albright contact in geographic areas not otherwise represented by PASS or an admission counselor.
College Liaison: Admission Counselor, Brian Benusa
II – Career Development Committee
Members of the Career Development Committee of the Albright Parents Leadership Council (APC) work with the Albright College Experiential Learning and Career Development Center to assist with the execution of a career advising and internship program for current Albright College students.
Expectations / Choice of Activities (may include one or more of the following):
College Liaison: Assistant Dean of Experiential Learning and Director of Career Development, Karen Evans

College Liaison: Director, Parents Leadership Council, Kathleen Sutton
Development Support: The Director of The Parents Leadership Council will communicate directly with all Parents Fundraising Committee members to review progress and assignments. All materials for the solicitation programs will be provided by the development office.
ADDING TO THE ALBRIGHT EXPERIENCEStudents new to Albright College soon find a wealth of new experiences and educational opportunities available to them here. In fact, many students have told us that by the time they graduate, they’ve come to consider their time at Albright the best thing that’s ever happened to them.
For many students, the involvement of their parents adds yet another dimension of satisfaction to the Albright experience. When parents become involved, the entire Albright community, as well as their own student, benefits.
Following are a number of ways you can get involved in both your student’s education and the life of the Albright community. After you look through the many opportunities, we hope you’ll decide to join our team of parent volunteers. When you do, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re making a positive contribution to your student’s experience at Albright College.
