Student Organization Advisor Needed

The student organization, Cru, is a faith-based organization seeking a faculty/staff advisor. "Cru is a diverse community where the gospel captures hearts, transforms lives and launches men and women into a lifelong adventure with Jesus Christ. We love Jesus and strive to be a community of students on a mission. This is played out by loving and serving others in various ways on our campus, in our community and around the world. Founded in 1951, Cru has expanded to thousands of campuses in the U.S. and more than 190 countries around the world. We are excited to be a part of this great movement and trust that God will do great work at Kutztown for many years to come."
