Alumni Relations

From the Director

Dear KU alumni,

Mary NeuenschwanderI am honored to serve as the director of alumni relations.  I have spent almost nine years at the Kutztown University Foundation working with you, the Alumni Council, and the university to improve the KU alumni experience.

The KU alumni community is now more than 72,00 living alumni strong – a number that grows each year. Our Golden Bear community spans generations and continents but what unites us is our love for Kutztown University.  The alumni relations team and its dedicated volunteers are committed to nurturing and enhancing this lifelong relationship with KU.

In 2018, the KU alumni relations office responded to a comprehensive Alumni Attitude Survey by refocusing our outreach efforts. You spoke, and we listened. One of the most significant changes came through the transition of the KU Alumni Board to an Alumni Council. This structure change allowed us to focus on three key areas: admissions support, enhancing the student experience through mentoring and networking, and sharing alumni success stories.

We will continue to listen to our alumni and current students through programming for affinity groups, outreach to students and young alumni, and providing volunteer opportunities of varying time commitments. Above all else, we want each of you to know that, through the Wiesenberger Alumni Center and its programs, you have a dedicated place on campus and a point of connection with KU.

I invite you to explore our newly redesigned website by clicking the links below.  There is a great deal of helpful information on this page, as well as many opportunities for alumni to become involved with the university.

In closing, I want to invite you to engage with us!  Attend an event, connect with us on social media, and feel free to contact me at with your ideas and suggestions.  I look forward to seeing you on campus or at a virtual event soon!

Together, we’re golden.,

Mary Neuenschwander
