Founded in 1997, the Kutztown University Presidential Ambassadors are made up of a diverse group of current KU students, from different majors, interests, and ages who all come together for the same goal, to bring KU Alumni and current students together, and to create a strong sense of KU community. The Ambassadors also work to promote student engagement and to encourage students to have Kutztown pride. The mission of the group is to support events that connect current students with alumni, faculty, staff and university friends; to act as ambassadors of the university, and to create new traditions to enhance KU pride. 

The Presidential Ambassadors' major fundraiser is the Tuition Sweepstakes held each fall semester. The winner of the sweepstakes is awarded one free semester of in-state tuition. The proceeds from the sweepstakes benefit ambassador programs and Kutztown University, including the Ladies Tea Scholarship, General Fund Scholarship, Play for Kay, campus and community wide events, as well as many other events geared toward philanthropic efforts. Our organization strives to build philanthropy and stewardship with the Kutztown University community.
