Office of the President
Welcome to Kutztown University! We are pleased you have decided to visit our website.
Returning visitors viewing this site on smart phones will notice our new user-friendly mobile platform we launched last spring. The mobile site gives you full access to university information in a convenient format.
We are very proud that for nearly a century and a half, Kutztown University has been a regional center of excellence. We strive to fulfill our mission of providing a high-quality education at the undergraduate and graduate levels in order to prepare students to meet lifelong intellectual, ethical, social, and career challenges.
Our tens of thousands of graduates throughout the commonwealth, region, nation and world, are a true testament to our efforts. Whether in the classroom, business, the arts or the many professional fields for which we prepare our students, KU alumni are making a difference.
The journey to lifelong success begins on our campus where our students will find an environment conducive to learning, living and growing. Our highly-qualified faculty bring outstanding diverse experience to the classroom from many of the best academic institutions and organizations around the globe. Our student life offerings include nearly 190 organizations, plus cultural and athletic events, lectures and social activities. It all happens on our award-winning campus grounds, in a beautiful rural setting, adjacent to the quaint borough of Kutztown. Yet, travel to several major cities, the mountains, and the beach is relatively short.
While our website will give you an excellent overview of our institution, I hope you are able to visit our campus in person. I am confident you will be impressed with everything we have to offer our current students and the many generations ahead.
Dr. Carlos Vargas-Aburto
