2017 KU Alumni Board of Directors

Alumni Board of Directors


Our mission is to engage alumni, students, parents and friends with the University by cultivating volunteerism, mentoring, university involvement, lifelong learning and a culture of philanthropy for the purpose of advancing the interests of the university and its family.

A Great Way to Serve KU

Alumni Board members support the mission of the association – engaging, connecting, and celebrating alumni and friends of Kutztown University – by helping to guide the Kutztown University Alumni Relations office, serving as formal and informal representatives of the university, and sharing their expertise to further Alumni Relations and university projects and programs.  We are always looking for alumni who want to give back to KU through service on the board.  We also seek candidates who will make our board more diverse so it will better represent the 72,500 Kutztown alumni across the country and around the world.

Please direct any questions to Alex Ogeka at 610-683-4110.  Click here to apply. For those of you who have served or are currently serving on the board, please re-apply using this form.
