More than 150 donors contributed to the cause, supporting nearly two dozen KCC students and employees from the KCC Police Academy who took the plunge into the frigid waters of a pool stationed in the Beer Garden area of Bell’s Eccentric Café in downtown Kalamazoo.
The Center for Diversity and Innovation at Kellogg Community College got a boost in continuing its work promoting racial equity and institutional capacity building in Battle Creek in the form of an $800,000 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The CDI, which is based on KCC’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek, formally launched in the spring of 2014, funded by a three-year, $2.1 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The additional funding, effective March 2017 through May 2018, is an extension of the original grant and enabled the CDI to more than double its staff from three to seven employees.
