York College is pleased to announce that Emily Lutz ‘14 has accepted a new role at her alma mater. Lutz has rejoined the advancement team as a development officer working on the scholarship fund. For the last three years, Lutz has blessed students as the director of student activities and the Title IX coordinator for York College.  In this role, she organized activities and managed the campus coffee shop. Her efforts have transformed the campus culture to be more engaging, positive, and safe.

While still a student, Lutz began working in the Advancement Office and quickly made herself indispensable. Upon graduation with a degree in business administration, she was offered a full time position as an advancement associate. In the 18 months that she served in that role, Lutz helped to lay the groundwork for the highly successful Beyond 125 campaign, which raised $16.8 million over three years.

“We are delighted to have Emily back in the advancement office,” said Chrystal Houston, director of alumni. “She combines a passion for the mission of York College with a willingness to push hard to earn results. Her enthusiasm for this work is infectious. I know she will accomplish much in this role.”

Lutz is enthusiastic about the new position. “After working directly with students for several years, I’m excited to tell their stories to alumni. York College today is different than it was when previous generations of alumni were here, but the transformation that goes on in students lives is the same. This mission still matters. I am excited to raise funds for scholarships that will mean more students are able to come here and have a life changing experience, no matter what their background,” she said.
