Alumni Ambassadors

Partnering with the Alumni Association, Kettering is focused on more effectively engaging alumni across the country through the Ambassador program.

The Alumni Admissions Ambassador program is recruiting alumni in geographical regions around the United States who will meet with potential students at college fairs, high schools, trade shows, and events to talk about the value and benefits of a Kettering education.

Another goal is to create new alumni networks in addition to the strong groups already in place. Kettering has strong alumni network in Southeast Michigan and the Bay Area in California, but alumni are everywhere. Kettering hopes to grow the alumni networks in Chicago, northeast Ohio, Houston, and Southwest Michigan, among others.

Another benefit of the program is involving younger alumni who want to give back to their alma mater.

Becoming an Ambassador is a great way to connect with prospective students and provide a real-world perspective on what is possible with a co-op education from Kettering. When I look back to my time in high school and the college application process, I remember how helpful it was to listen to co-ops and alumni share about their co-op projects and how they have made an impact on their career path. This helped me understand what sets Kettering apart and I enjoyed providing that same perspective with current high school students and their parents.

Share The Story / Refer A Future Bulldog

Share the Kettering story, share your personal Kettering experience and connect talented students you know to your alma mater. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, face-to-face interaction is a limited, if not completely unavailable option for student recruitment. Without the ability to have typical high school visits or attend college fairs, there are fewer opportunities to reach students outside of the virtual world. As part of the Ambassador Program, we have created a new campaign to increase Kettering University’s overall prospective student inquiries.

Refer students in your network to visit to fill out an interest form so we can keep them up-to-date on admissions and scholarship opportunities and learn more about all that Kettering University has to offer. Be sure to tell them to include your name as a reference.
