Multicultural Services would like to invite our Kutztown University colleagues to participate in an open dialogue surrounding the current state of civil unrest and the reasons behind it. We encourage you to bring your thoughts in an effort to gain perspective on the viewpoints of others. Our goal is to support each other, as well as our students. This dialogue may lead us toward conversations surrounding possible next steps of action within our own departments that will be shared with the administration. Please join us for this casual but needed conversation Friday, June 12, at 1 p.m., via Zoom ID: 950 3807 9056, Password: Talk. Join us. "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn," Benjamin Franklin.

Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

High pressure departs out sea but will continue to pump warm and humid air into the region. As the high departs some midlevel atmospheric energy may spark an afternoon shower or t-storm. Should not be any severe weather though. High temperature in the upper-80s. Winds south at 5-10 mph. Rainfall less than a tenth of an inch with higher amounts where storms occur.


June 22
Many blood drives were canceled, including the last three at Kutztown University. Now with guidance from Centers for Disease Control and Pennsylvania Department of Health, KU will host a Miller-Keystone Blood Drive, noon to 7 p.m., Monday, June 22, in the Student Recreation Center. Please make an appointment using the website so that we can manage social distancing. This is a public blood drive so please encourage your friends, family and neighbors to sign up. Face masks are required; all other cleaning precautions will be taken. The blood supply is low, so help is needed. Thank you.

There are no face-to-face events scheduled at this time.

Due to high demand, the KU bear head masks are out of stock. We will have 1,000 masks arriving by Tuesday, June 23. We are accepting pre-orders to ensure that you can get your hands on the best looking mask around.

KUSSI is excited to announce the launch of the finance module in our Engage platform. This will allow student organizations the capability to submit a Purchase Request and Funding Request (previously called Check Request) online through Engage. This platform will also allow you to view your account balances, along with all previous transactions. KUSSI will no longer accept paper requests, everything will need to be done through the Engage finance module. You can begin to utilize this functionality Wednesday, July 1, for the 2020-2021 academic year. An email was sent to all organizations with more information. Email kussi@kutztown.edu if you have any questions.
