LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT Friends of KCC, I am proud to share the 2015-16 Kellogg Community College and Kellogg Community College Foundation combined annual report, which provides an overview of another exciting year and data regarding the strength of both organizations’ financial positions. In 2015-16, many faculty, staff and administrators from across the College spent a great deal of time and conversation on the development of program pathways that will help our students with career and transfer plans. This initiative, known as Guided Pathways, will be honed in the coming year with the intention of launching it for incoming students in Fall 2017. In short, Guided Pathways is expected to provide a clearer, smoother route for students to enter the career or university of their choice. We also made significant progress in 2015-16 on the development of opportunities that allow area students to take college courses while they are still in high school. We are excited to work with our K-12 partners across the region to further develop early college programs that will benefit students, families and employers. Another highlight of 2015-16 was the positive feedback we received in January from the Higher Learning Commission, an accrediting body of colleges and universities. The HLC determined that KCC satisfied all components of our mid-cycle review, which affirms that we’re heading in the right direction as a college and that our mission, operations and outcomes are in alignment with accreditation standards. As we closed the 2015-16 fiscal year, we continued to implement cost-saving strategies while launching a significant strategic planning process that will come to fruition in the coming year. We anticipate that the energy around all of our initiatives will propel us forward into the 2016-17 year. Whether you’re a student, alumnus, donor or community member – or just curious about what KCC has to offer – I invite you to visit with us at any of our locations in Battle Creek, Albion, Coldwater or Hastings.

Mark P. O’Connell President, Kellogg Community College 6


HISTORY Our story began in 1956, when the Battle Creek Public Schools Board of Education created Battle Creek Community College to serve the higher education needs of students throughout the area. Our doors opened on Sept. 17, 1956, with 176 students taking classes in a converted building in downtown Battle Creek. Thanks to generous gifts from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Lane-Thomas Foundation and Albert L. and Louise B. Miller Foundation, the community college later gained autonomy, created a local tax district, renamed itself Kellogg Community College and expanded to multiple locations. Today, KCC serves approximately 10,500 students annually on five campuses and through Lifelong Learning and customized training programs.

G U I D E D P AT H WAY S

I N I T I AT I V E

In the fall of 2015, Kellogg Community College was accepted into Cohort II of the Guided Pathways Initiative (GPI) with the Michigan Community College Association (MCCA). Upon acceptance, the College formed a Steering Committee to lead the initiative. Formal planning alongside MCCA began in January 2016. With the advice of MCCA and GPI experts, the Steering Committee began prioritizing the work and developed three Project Teams: Program Mapping, Student Engagement and Transfer Analysis. In the Spring 2016 semester, the Steering Committee recognized the need to add a fourth Project Team to address transitional studies. To date, the Steering Committee has accomplished many significant tasks. The committee approved Areas of Study; supported the need for a First-Year Experience (FYE) course and the critical elements of that course; developed and began implementation of a program mapping process; improved new student orientation; identified a career assessment approach; piloted an intrusive advising model; and identified top five transfer institutions.

HIGHER LEARNING COMMISSION

A C C R E D I TAT I O N In early 2016, the Higher Learning Commission determined that KCC had satisfied all accreditation benchmarks during a review of the College’s progress since the last full accreditation visit in 2011-12. An HLC review team submitted a 47-page report in January 2016 noting many of KCC’s strengths, including the College’s role in offering specialized training and workforce development; faculty members who are “remarkably active” in publishing and presenting research; and a Board of Trustees that is willing to engage with the community. The HLC determination came in response to the College’s own 99-page progress report, which detailed how KCC’s mission, operations and outcomes align with HLC accreditation standards. KCC has been continually accredited by the HLC and its predecessor, the North Central Association, since 1965. 10


S T R AT E G I C

PLANNING In Summer 2016, the College’s President’s Council launched a strategic planning process designed to involve all aspects of KCC. The Council’s work initially involved a series of work sessions devoted to the analysis of data, a review of KCC’s mission and vision and the development of a strategy to engage employees and students from across the College. The first phase established a framework for the planning; initiated an analysis of KCC’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats; identified factors or drivers leading to change; and determined key strategic areas of focus for the next several years. The second phase, to be conducted in Fall 2016, involves sharing and validating the strategic planning work with input from KCC employees; establishing initiatives and goals; creating project teams and reviewing plans with the Board of Trustees. The third phase, implementation of the strategic plan, will begin in early 2017.

E A R LY

COLLEGE In 2015-16, Kellogg Community College made all K-12 school districts aware that the College is willing to explore an early college partnership with any district in the area. The idea of early college is to shorten the path for students who wish to enter viable careers and/or obtain a college credential. The state of Michigan is promoting early college programs as a way to improve high school graduation rates, reduce drop-out rates and increase college enrollment while saving students and taxpayers money in the short and long terms. By the end of 2015-16, KCC had signed early college partnerships with nine districts, including Calhoun Area Career Center, Coldwater, Harper Creek, Hastings, Lakeview, Marshall, Pennfield, Quincy and Union City. Several of those districts expect to launch their programs in 2017. 11


A D C A M PA I G N 2 0 1 6 The College’s Public Information and Marketing Department launched a new ad campaign in 2015-16 that began to highlight success stories of KCC students, alumni and employees. The “It’s About” storytelling campaign was launched in June 2016 to coincide with annual promotions for fall registration. “It’s About” features a variety of students sharing their stories through video, print, social media and digital platforms. From a creative aspect as well as a delivery strategy, the campaign is designed to resonate with prospective students by connecting with the beliefs, attitudes, values and behaviors of our target audiences. Those audiences include teenagers, young adults and working adults across KCC’s service area.

Apply to KCC Apply for Financial Aid and Scholarships Take the Skills Assessment Meet with Academic Advising Register and Pay for Classes Complete Orientation

FINANCIAL AID The College maintains an effective financial aid program of scholarships, grants, campus employment and loans. Financial aid experts guide students through processes, including the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), to determine eligibility in a variety of programs, including Pell grants, work-study and veteran assistance.

CAREER PREPARATION KCC’s Career and Employment Services office works with students, alumni and local employers to assist in the placing of our Bruins in local jobs. KCC provides résumé and interview guidance and works with employers to post job openings on the College Central Network, where students can upload résumés and submit applications.

ATHLETICS KCC student athletes – approximately 92 per year – participate in five competitive sports: men’s baseball, women’s softball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and women’s volleyball. KCC participates in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association Western Conference and the National Junior College Athletic Association Region 12. KCC spends approximately $319,000 per year on its athletic programs, including salaries, scholarships, operating costs and travel, but a majority of that expense is offset by the tuition that student athletes – many of whom are recruited from outside the KCC tax district – pay for classes at the College.

PERFORMING AND VISUAL ARTS KCC’s music and theatre faculty guide a sequence of student and community performances each year, including plays, musicals, operas, band concerts and recitals. These performances occur in the Binda Performing Arts Center on the Battle Creek campus as well as other locations throughout Calhoun, Barry and Branch counties. Additionally, the College’s art faculty host a series of student and guest exhibits each year featuring a variety of media, including oil paintings, photography and sculpture.

WORKFORCE SOLUTIONS KCC delivers cost-effective, innovative and customized workforce development programs to companies and organizations across the service area. Our Workforce Solutions Department designs training and credential programs specifically for businesses and nonprofits in the manufacturing, health care and service sectors. We also offer opportunities through the Michigan New Jobs Training Program, which provides free employee training to eligible employers

LIFELONG LEARNING For students seeking short-term, non-credit courses in a range of topics, KCC’s Lifelong Learning Department offers classes in art, cooking, crafts, technology, fitness, languages and other areas.

SERVICE-LEARNING KCC is committed to the development of students through service-learning and civic engagement and strongly encourages students to gain experience in this field during their time here. The College has developed community partnerships to ensure students obtain meaningful experiences that also meet the needs of the community. Upon completion of service requirements in designated courses, students receive a service-learning endorsement on their academic transcripts. 20

LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR Dear Friends, Since 1998, the KCC Foundation has opened doors and changed lives for students striving to achieve their educational dreams.

Over the next few years, the KCC Foundation aspires to strengthen its financial assets, increase the number and demographic diversity of scholarship applicants, re-engage with alumni, expand its outreach efforts and use technology to gain internal efficiencies; all to enhance student and donor experiences.

FRANK AND JOHN

ZANETTI “We have fond memories of growing up in Battle Creek and being surrounded by people who cared deeply about each other and about the community. Our parents, Santo and Maria Zanetti, and our friends shaped who we are today. “We wish more people were aware of the values and opportunities that exist here. “Our family has a long tradition of giving back and treating our neighbors and fellow citizens like extensions of our family. Now, we’re giving back to the community what the community has given to us: opportunity. That’s why we’ve created the Santo and Maria Zanetti Fund at the Kellogg Community College Foundation, which offers abundant opportunities for people to figure out what they want to do and who they want to be.”

“If we make a difference

in one life or 10, we hope they’ll

pay it forward

so we can all make Battle Creek special again.” – The Zanetti family

“A J O Y A N D A P R I V I L E G E ”

J O H N A N D D I A N E K E L LO G G Education is a family affair for Diane and John Kellogg, whose endowed Diane and John Kellogg Scholarship fund provides $1,000 each year to help fund expenses for education majors at KCC. The couple and their three grown children – two of whom are now teachers – have all earned bachelor’s degrees, and all have benefited from having expenses covered in part by scholarships or tuition reimbursement. The couple established the Diane and John Kellogg Scholarship in 2007 as a way to give back. It was initially established as a scholarship for student assistants working in KCC’s Morris Learning Resource Center, where Diane worked as manager of library services until retiring from the College in 2015. John retired as a computer lab technician from the College’s Fehsenfeld Center in Hastings in 2015 after working at the College since 2008. Broadening the scope of their scholarship to education majors seemed like a natural choice when the scholarship was endowed in 2014, and working with students through their roles at the College provided additional validation for the couple’s decision. “Working with students and knowing some of them are really just pushing forward because they’re determined but they’re having problems financially, and knowing that we are helping is just a really good feeling,” John said. “We are in a position now where we can do that, and we want to pay it forward. It’s a joy and privilege to do it.” The scholarship and the motivations that drive it extend beyond just the Kelloggs and their children. The scholarship is funded in part from inheritance funds from Diane and John’s mothers, both of whom died in recent years, and the Kelloggs, in addition to funding education for KCC students, have also set up funds for the education of their young grandchildren. “We’re not big gift givers, we don’t lavish gifts, but this is what we want to do,” Diane said. “I’m a first-generation college student in my family, and I’m proud to say that my children have graduated from college, too.”

H I G H AC H I E V E R

ERIC MCCLURE Eric McClure was no stranger to achievement when he was awarded the Kellogg Community College Board of Trustees scholarship in 2013. A graduate of Athens High School, McClure was on the school’s honor roll every semester, was valedictorian of his class and was recognized for completing more than 300 hours of community service. His senior year of high school he was elected to the Athens Area School District Board of Education. Yet McClure, who graduated from KCC in 2015 with an associate of general studies degree, says he was initially nervous about being able to juggle the requirements of the scholarship, which included participation in various Honors Program activities and other initiatives. “Going in I thought it would be uncomfortable because you’ve got to do these honor contract projects, these service-learning experiences, and I thought that’s just a lot to ask of a student, especially a first-year student,” McClure said. “But to me, if it wasn’t for that I don’t know how involved I would’ve gotten at KCC. So I have to thank the requirements of the scholarship for that; I just don’t think I would’ve been as involved.” 32

McClure’s studies led him to volunteer serving Thanksgiving breakfast to customers at the SHARE Center in Battle Creek, and to working with residents at S.A.F.E. Place Shelter, where he and others were so moved they purchased gifts for children staying there. In 2015 he completed a 10-month internship with the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi tribe in Athens Township. McClure was awarded the Robert F. Hites Transfer Scholarship for the highest achieving Kellogg Community College graduate and is now studying political science and journalism at Western Michigan University. “I want to be able to represent, by standing up for and giving a voice to, those in my community, and at the same time be able to communicate with them,” McClure said. “Too often

our leaders seem to go off on their own agendas and leave their communities behind. I’d hope that my skills in political science and journalism would help me become a leader who is able to listen to and communicate the needs of my community.”


CEREAL CITY

S U N R I S E R O TA R Y C L U B After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, individuals and organizations across the United States sprang into action. Immediately, members of the Cereal City Sunrise Rotary Club in Battle Creek wondered what they could do to help the country heal and become stronger, especially in the long term. Their plan was to create a scholarship to help students study public safety, criminal justice, firefighting and emergency medical technology at Kellogg Community College.

Since its inception in May 2002, the Cereal City Sunrise Rotary Club September 11 Memorial Fund has provided financial assistance to 10 students through the KCC Foundation. Although 15 years have passed since that fateful day in 2001, the Sunrise Rotary remains committed to educating first-responders and growing their academic opportunities. Members have raised money for the fund through raffles and personal donations. In 2014, the club contributed an additional $5,000 to the fund and, later that year, organized a community fundraiser – a dinner theater event – which raised another $2,700. “Police officers, firefighters and EMTs are needed more than ever, so we’re doing what we can as a Rotary Club to help our community fill that need,” said T.R. Shaw, longtime member of the Sunrise Rotary.

ART ON CAMPUS AND THE DAVIDSON COURTYARD

R E N O VAT I O N P R O J E C T The Art on Campus Initiative of the KCC Foundation began in 2004 with the help of the DeVries Visual and Performing Arts Fund started by Robert and Eleanor DeVries. The mission of the Art on Campus Initiative is to provide art experiences on KCC campuses for students, faculty, staff and the community. Under this initiative, original diverse artworks are purchased for KCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permanent collection or to refurbish the existing collection, lectures and workshops on an art topic are conducted for students and the community, and unique sculptures are exhibited. On September 24, 2015, the Courtyard Renovation Project was unveiled in conjunction with the rededication of the Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center. With a vision of creating a highly pleasing, multi-purpose space that connects students, staff, and the greater community to sculpture and nature, the Davidson Courtyard serves as a visual extension of the Eleanor R. and Robert A. DeVries Gallery. This project was made possible through a collaboration between KCC Arts and Communication, KCC Foundation and Leila Arboretum Society with generous support from the Battle Creek Community Foundation, Robert A. and Eleanor R. DeVries, Bosker Brick Company, Hoffman Brothers, Laborersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Local Union 355, Outdoor Landscape and Supplies, Schweitzer, Inc., The Brickman Group and Zanetti Family Foundation.

KCC employees have the opportunity to apply for a Program Initiative Grant through the KCC Foundation. These grants are awarded yearly based on innovative concepts, the grant’s ability to directly impact students and the connection between the College and Foundation missions.

COLLEGE PROJECTS SUPPORTED BY THE KCC FOUNDATION IN 2015-2016: KCC COMMUNITY GARDEN AND GREENHOUSE LEARN AND SERVE With the purchase of much-needed supplies, students can complete their service-learning requirement while acquiring basic gardening and horticultural knowledge and skills. ONLINE TUTORING COLLABORATION TOOL A new online tutoring tool, free to KCC students, provides increased opportunities to reinforce instruction and students’ understanding of subject areas.

MATH AND SCIENCE CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY Having students share their work and their understanding of information is the prime motivator for this project that placed writable monitor screens in the classroom.

YOUTH CAREER EXPLORATION CAMPS Coordinated by KCC Lifelong Learning, these intensive, hands-on learning opportunities in areas such as Advanced Manufacturing/ Industrial Trades, Allied Health, Police and Emergency Services and Business and Technology allow students to be better prepared to embark on a path aligned with their skills and interests. BIOLOGY 99 SERVICE PROJECT Partnering with the Veterans Administration Hospital, students in this course made blankets to give to the veterans, visited with them, and learned about health-related job/career opportunities at the VA. PHOTOGRAPHIC DOCUMENTARY PROJECT This powerful student-driven photography and multimedia art project broadens a student’s portfolio development, reinforces the College’s mission, and adds to the beauty of all campus locations.

INDUSTRIAL ELECTRICITY EQUIPMENT AND CURRICULUM The addition of updated training equipment and curriculum for this program at the Regional Manufacturing Technology Center, provides traditional and non-traditional students relevant terminology and ease of engagement through comprehensive lab experiments and activities. 37
