FRIENDS OF KCC I am thrilled to present to you the 2017-18 annual report from Kellogg Community College and the Kellogg Community College Foundation. On behalf of both organizations, I express to you my gratitude for your interest in KCC, and I invite you to explore this report to comprehend the heights of KCC students’ achievements, the depths of the College’s understanding of teaching and learning, and the breadth of our course and training offerings. I am especially grateful to our students, donors and taxpayers, without whom KCC wouldn’t exist.

As we wrap up another year as the premier institution of higher learning in the Battle Creek area, we remain as hopeful and enthusiastic as we’ve ever been. We are motivated every day as our students forge ahead into the future, achieving their academic and professional goals and stepping boldly toward new destinations, new careers and new lives. In 2017-18, our Board of Trustees adopted the framework for a strategic plan, incorporating a threeyear plan to create a fair and equitable environment at KCC; continue responding to the community’s education and training needs; and ensure the College remains student-centered in everything we do. This plan will guide our work as we create opportunities for our students, for the College as an institution and for the communities we serve. Part of this plan involves expanding access to education, a concept the Board of Trustees had in mind in April when it froze tuition and fees for the upcoming academic year. This past year, we also started, continued and laid the groundwork for some $18 million worth of construction and renovations across our campuses. This effort included a rebuild of our Miller Physical Education Building and the beginning of an interior renovation of our Regional Manufacturing Technology Center. We also began projects at each of our campuses in Battle Creek, Albion, Hastings and Coldwater to create all-gender restrooms and private rooms for nursing mothers. We invite you to stop by any of our sites to see for yourself how KCC is positioning itself to serve the needs of our students for years to come. If you visit one of our campuses, attend one of our cultural performances or cheer on our athletes at a game, I think you’ll agree that this is, indeed, a great time to be a Bruin!

KCC AT PRIDE WEEKEND

The Center for Diversity and Innovation at Kellogg Community College kicked off Pride Weekend in Battle Creek with a keynote address and community discussion featuring a former FBI agent and noted outreach program director. The keynote, titled “Staying Safe, Staying Strong, Staying Proud: A Call to Action Following the 2016 Election,” was delivered by Cynthia M. Deitle, a retired FBI Civil Rights Special Agent and current program director for the Matthew Shepard Foundation. The keynote was the kickoff of a series of public Pride Weekend activities, including a parade, festival and candlelight vigil.

FALL SEMESTER BEGINS

Fall 2017 began August 31 and would ultimately include 6,152 students. Of the entire student population, approximately 15% were dual-enrolled high school students.

KCC’s 2017-18 academic year included a new scholarship for Physical Therapist Assistant students. The KCC Foundation announced the new Southwest Michigan Rehabilitation Foundation Scholarship, part of a 10-year endowed gift commitment of $100,000 from the Southwest Michigan Rehabilitation Foundation. Each year, a second-year student of the program will receive funding.

STRATEGIC PLAN APPROVED

20th ANNUAL BRUIN SCHOLARSHIP OPEN

The KCC Board of Trustees approved the framework for the College’s strategic plan that includes institutional belief statements and goals for a threeyear period. After nearly a year of planning, with input from employees, the framework was reviewed and finalized by the President’s Council. It includes creating a fair and equitable environment; understanding and responding to community needs; expanding the capacity for change, collaboration and innovation; using datadriven decision-making; and ensuring a student-centered focus.

SPORTS TEAMS ADDED TO KCC LINEUP

KCC announced several new sports teams to be added over the next several years as a strategic vision for KCC Athletics unfolds. Cross-country was added in 2018-19, women’s soccer will arrive in 2019-20 and men’s and women’s bowling teams are planned for 2020-21. Not stopping there, the potential for new associate degree programs in sports management and exercise science are being explored. These changes were taking place as the College completed construction on the $10 million Miller Physical Education Building.

NEW SCHOLARSHIP BENEFITS PROGRAM

A record $105,000 in scholarship money was raised for Kellogg Community College students during the KCC Foundation’s 20th annual Bruin Scholarship Open in September. The annual event – held Sept. 8 at Binder Park Golf Course in Battle Creek – is the largest fundraising event of the year for the Foundation and has raised more than $1 million over the past 20 years. Funds raised at the 2017 event will help support approximately 90 student scholarships.

KCC GOES MOBILE WITH NEWAPP

Students got some extra help managing class assignments, checking grades, registering for classes, getting alerts and finding their way around campus when the “Kellogg CC” mobile application was rolled out. The free download lets students log in with their existing K-ID information and access several helpful features, including finding contact information for faculty and staff members, viewing the Academic Catalog and using the KCC Self-Service program for financial matters.

WORKFORCE TRAINING INITIATIVE

KCC CREATES TWO NEW HEALTH CARE PROGRAMS

KCC received a three-year, $2.85 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to work with schools and organizations to improve the local economy by connecting teenagers and adults to employers and strengthening their technical skills. The grant also will help pay for an interior renovation at the Regional Manufacturing Technology Center. Through partnering with organizations such as Goodwill Industries, Michigan Works!, the Calhoun Area Career Center, the Battle Creek College Access Network and area schools, the College adhered to a commitment to BC Vision, Battle Creek’s community-driven effort to improve economic conditions for residents.

ORGAN DONORS REGISTERED

Michigan Libraries for Life and Gift of Life Michigan joined KCC for a statewide initiative to increase organ donation registration. The informational event was held in the College’s Emory Morris Library and helped students, staff and community members sign up to be eye, organ and tissue donors. This was the fourth year for the partnership; no other site in the state registered more donors in 2014 and 2015 than KCC.

PIM WINS AWARDS

The National Council for Marketing and Public Relations recognized the College’s Public Information and Marketing department with nine Medallion Awards for its efforts to recruit students, connect with the community and promote KCC during the 2016/17 academic year. At an event in Iowa, KCC received the awards for efforts such as the College’s first Bruin Boo! Halloween event, promotional materials for the spring musical “Zombie Prom,” invitations for KCC’s 60th Anniversary Gala and more.

SCHOLARSHIP DINNER

The KCC Foundation’s 2017 Scholarship Dinner was held Wednesday, Oct. 25, at the Battle Creek Country Club. Each year the annual event brings more than 200 scholarship recipients, donors, KCC employees, KCC Board of Trustees and KCC Foundation Board members together for dinner, to meet and to hear inspirational stories from student scholarship recipients. Student speakers at the 2017 event were Karaleen Cottman, Kameron Haley, Isaac Lake, Elizabeth Miller-Carlsen, Virginia Ontita and Alex Walton.

!-KCC-AR-FINAL.indd 8

The Neurodiagnostic Technologist Program and the Computed Tomography Program were added to KCC’s health education opportunities when the Board of Trustees approved their creation on November 15. The Michigan Radiologic Imaging Science Consortium worked with the College to develop the new programs. Those who work in these fields use technology to analyze the health of the human nervous system and peer into internal organs, bones, tissue and blood vessels.

RENOVATION PLAN BRINGS STATE FUNDING

KCC’s plan to renovate the Regional Manufacturing Technology Center in Battle Creek was given over $2 million in matching funding from the state’s Joint Capital Outlay Subcommittee in early November. The Subcommittee’s decision, supported by Gov. Rick Snyder, will allow the College to modify spaces in the building in Battle Creek’s Fort Custer Industrial Park to accommodate programs that have been added over the years to the 28-year-old facility. The RMTC has equipment for training in robotics, mechatronics, heating, cooling, machining and more.

JANUARY

Spring 2018 began January 12 and would ultimately include 5,889 students.

PROFESSORS RECOGNIZED FOR 45 YEARS OF SERVICE

The Kellogg Community College Board of Trustees congratulated two faculty members for each completing 45 years of dedicated service to KCC. Professor Ron Smith, Math and Science, and Professor Gene Andrews, Communication, were applauded for their achievements, receiving a standing ovation from the Board of Trustees and others present at the Jan. 17 meeting.

MAGIC HELPS RAISE MORE THAN $10,200 FOR SCHOLARSHIPS

Scholarships offered through the Kellogg Community College Foundation got two boosts in January. World-renowned magician Stuart MacDonald, who has appeared on Penn and Teller’s “Fool Us” television program and is an Adrian native, performed two shows as scholarship fundraisers in the Binda Performing Arts Center. The KCCF also held the annual KCC employee auction and raffle, the 2018 Bid a Brighter Future: It’s All in the Magic. More than $10,200 was raised.

COLLEGE HISTORY TOLD BY LOCAL AUTHOR/HISTORIAN

KCC Professor Emeritus Liz Neumeyer gave a presentation, “Odds & Ends: The History of KCC,” sharing stories that didn’t make it into her coming book on the subject, focusing on the early 1990s through today. Neumeyer conducted several interviews with past and present College staff members, students and the community for her work, and reviewed historical documents. The book is a follow-up to one chronicling KCC’s history from its beginning to 1991 authored by Neva Bartel. At her talk, Neumeyer exhibited images from KCC’s archives.

One of three finalists for a 2018 Governor’s Fitness Award, KCC was honored at events in Lansing and Detroit for its efforts promoting employee health and wellness. The Governor’s Fitness Awards, sponsored by the Michigan Fitness Foundation and the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports, recognize individuals and communities for their commitment to becoming healthier. KCC was a finalist in the “Large Healthy Workplace” category of the Healthy Workplace Awards, which includes organizations of 150 to 999 employees. According to the Governor’s Council and Michigan Fitness Foundation, the award is bestowed upon organizations with “outstanding programs that help to create best practices for organizations throughout Michigan to replicate.”

The College’s Associate of Applied Science in Nursing Program received national accreditation status by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing. The accreditation is not mandatory for KCC Nursing, but the additional qualification gives KCC Nursing graduates another advantage when seeking work. The accreditation ensures KCC’s program meets the most rigorous and highest standards of nursing education to address the future needs of students and employers in the health care field.

The ceremony included remarks from 2018 KCC graduate Karaleen Cottman, who graduated with an Associate in Applied Science in Nursing. Approximately 426 KCC graduates participated in commencement.

STUDENTS LEAD ENERGYSAVING PROJECT

Outdated lighting in the College’s Emory Morris Library was replaced with efficient LED bulbs, thanks to a project led by KCC’s Alpha Nu Eta chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa national honor society. More than $7,300 in energy costs will be saved thanks to the change. The student-led project grew out of a meeting with KCC President Mark O’Connell that focused on an environmental strategy that also included the previous year’s installation of 40 custom recycling stations at the North Avenue campus in Battle Creek. The project received funding from the KCC Foundation and Consumers Energy.

KCC PARTNERS WITH AGENCIES FOR JOB TRAINING INITIATIVE

KCC announced a partnership with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and Michigan Works! Southwest to offer occupational skills training and case management services to low-income, non-custodial parents who can’t make their child support payments in Calhoun and Jackson Counties. The program, the Families Forward Demonstration Training Agreement, is part of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Families Forward program. The KCC program also provides a Workforce Solutions Career Coach for job placement assistance.

RMTC UPGRADE BEGINS

KCC’s Regional Manufacturing and Technology Center in Battle Creek’s Fort Custer Industrial Park launched a $4.3 million upgrade that will increase the lifespan of the building as it continues to be where thousands of workers train for skilled and industrial trades jobs. Funding for the project includes $2.15 million from the State of Michigan’s capital outlay program, $1.075 million from the Battle Creek Tax Increment Finance Authority, $250,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and $830,000 from KCC’s dedicated capital millage, which local voters renewed in 2012.

COLLEGES JOIN FORCES FOR NURSING EDUCATION

The number of local bachelor-level nursing graduates will get a boost thanks to KCC and Olivet College working together. The memorandum of understanding signed in June will help students smoothly transfer from KCC’s nationally accredited nursing program to Olivet College’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program. Beginning in Fall 2018, the Olivet College program will use classroom space at KCC’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek.

MILLER PHYSICAL EDUCATION BUILDING NEARS COMPLETION

As the 2017-18 fiscal year drew to a close, construction workers were nearly finished with the new Miller Physical Education Building. The new 39,000-square-foot facility replaces the former building of the same name at the same location, and includes a modern gymnasium, weight room, aerobics room, classroom and office space. The project also included the construction of an indoor batting/pitching facility adjacent to the Miller Building.

There will be dedicated space for Michigan Works! personnel, replacement of heating and cooling systems as well as electrical infrastructure, expansion of instructional areas and other upgrades.

KCC ATHLETICS Nearly two dozen student athletes were awarded postseason athletic awards from the Michigan Community College Athletic Association and more than 30 earned postseason academic awards from the MCCAA. The year was particularly notable for the baseball team’s conference and state championship titles; the softball and volleyball teams earning MCCAA All-Academic and NJCAA All-Academic Team awards; the addition of men’s and women’s cross-country; and for being the final season for KCC softball, which was discontinued as part of a new athletics restructuring announced in 2017.

BASEBALL

KCC’s baseball team ended the spring 2018 season as the runner-up in the NJCAA Region XII Baseball Tournament May 19 in Sandusky, Ohio. The Bruins finished the season as MCCAA Western Conference and State champions with an overall record of 45-8 and a conference record of 23-1.

IT WAS ANOTHER COMPETITIVE YEAR FOR KCC’S STUDENT-ATHLETES, WHO COMPETED IN THE MICHIGAN COMMUNITY COLLEGE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION’S WESTERN CONFERENCE AND THE NATIONAL JUNIOR COLLEGE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION’S REGION XII. KCC student athlete Diamond Harvey drives against Sinclair Community College.

Three men’s basketball players were awarded postseason athletic awards from the MCCAA, and one earned postseason academic awards from the MCCAA.

KCC’s women’s volleyball team had a banner season under third-year Head Coach Tom VanWienen last fall, finishing the season in November at the NJCAA regional tournament — the first time in more than a decade that the Bruins have qualified to compete in the postseason in volleyball. The Bruins ended the season with a winning 21-10 record overall and a 10-6 record in their MCCAA Western Conference. Three volleyball players were awarded postseason athletic awards from the MCCAA, and seven earned postseason academic awards from the MCCAA.

WORKFORCE SOLUTIONS IS THE BUSINESS, INDUSTRY AND JOBTRAINING ARM OF KCC. IT SERVES BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY PARTNERS BY DEVELOPING LEARNING SOLUTIONS CUSTOMIZED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF EMPLOYERS.

WORKFORCE SOLUTIONS

The Workforce Solutions department is the business, industry and job-training arm of Kellogg Community College. The department serves the business and industry community by developing and delivering cost-effective, high quality and flexible learning solutions specifically customized to meet the unique learning objectives and needs of employers. In 201718, Workforce Solutions concentrated its service in the manufacturing, health care, business, service, gaming, entertainment and government sectors.

Anthony Gibbs (right) was having trouble finding work and had no prior college experience. But after completing the Kellogg Advanced Manufacturing Assembly training program, he was hired by Advanced Special Tools, Inc., in Battle Creek. The four-week KAMA program offers participants a chance to gain experience in a working manufacturing environment, and training in a variety of manufacturing skill sets and production concepts. Gibbs says the program made him feel more comfortable going into his first manufacturing job after graduation. “It’s a great program,” Gibbs says. “It’s actually preparing you for the workforce.” Gibbs says the KAMA Program is a good stepping stone not just for those looking for employment, but for those looking to continue their education as well.

A campus-wide initiative of the College’s Service-Learning office, Bruins Gives Back brings KCC students and employees together in service through volunteering at locations in and around Battle Creek three times each fall and spring semester. During the 2017-18 academic year, KCC students and employees together volunteered to serve at several area locations, on Sept. 29, Oct. 27 and Dec. 1 during the fall semester and on Feb. 16, March 16 and April 20 during the spring semester.

485 SERVICE-LEARNING ENDORSEMENTS WERE EARNED IN 2017-18.

KCC’s first Volunteer and Civic Engagement Fair of the 2017-18 academic year was held Sept. 20 on KCC’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek, and included representatives from more than two dozen community service organizations. The semi-annual event offers students and others interested in community service and service-learning the opportunity to visit tables and displays set up by participating organizations serving in the Battle Creek area. On Jan. 31, the spring fair was combined with the Student Life office’s annual Bruin Boost welcome back event for students held at the beginning of the spring semester, creating the College’s first-ever Bruin Boost Service Blitz. The event included representatives from more than 40 community organizations, along with representatives from registered student organizations and departments from across the College.

During the 2017-18 academic year, service-learning opportunities for students grew through an expansion of online service-learning course offerings; more service-learning courses at KCC’s regional centers and more opportunities to serve in the surrounding communities; and a new offering that lets U.S. military veterans gain credit and the service-learning endorsement for their service. Additionally, KCC’s service-learning opportunities went international with an immersive study-abroad experience that allowed students to study environmental sustainability at EARTH University in Costa Rica over Spring Break.

MUSIC

PERFORMING AND VISUAL ARTS INITIATIVES ARE HELD ON KCC’S CAMPUSES EACH YEAR INCLUDING ART EXHIBITS, PLAYS, MUSICALS, CONCERTS AND RECITALS.

KCC’s Music Program produces nearly 50 musical presentations annually. Over the course of the 2017-18 academic year, singers and musicians from KCC’s various choirs and music initiatives presented dozens of performances on and off campus, ranging from solo faculty and student recitals to jazz and concert band performances. Major annual choral and musical productions included the KCC Faculty Artist Recital on Oct. 22; the Sounds of the Season concert on Dec. 2, titled “Christmas Treasures & Community Messiah Sing”; the Community wide Hymn & Spiritual Sing-Along event in the Binda Performing Arts Center on Feb. 4; the Singing in the Spring concert in downtown Battle Creek on April 29, titled “From Madrigals to Jazz”; and the Student Honors Recital featuring performances from the most advanced vocal/instrumental students on May 2. KCC’s choirs also participated in major collaborations with area musical organizations in December, performing Handel’s “Messiah” with the Monroe Symphony Orchestra and Community Chorale to a sold-out house of 700 at the IHM Motherhouse Cathedral in Monroe and again to an audience of nearly 2,000 with the Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra at W.K. Kellogg Auditorium. The season was capped with the KCC Touring Choir’s Spring 2018 Midwest Concert Tour in May. The choir presented the program “Songs of Spirit, Light, Love and Passion” at locations in Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, including at the Mall of America.

THEATRE

2017-18 was another vibrant year for theatre at KCC. The College produces two major theatrical productions each year in the Binda Performing Arts Center, with auditions open to students and community members alike. Last year’s season opened with KCC’s fall drama “Antigone: Closure” in November, a contemporary take on Sophocles Greek tragedy “Antigone” written by KCC theatre professor Brad Poer. KCC’s spring musical was “Xanadu,” which ran in April. Theatre students also produced their own “Mich-Mash” performances, featuring 30 short plays in 60 minutes, and Acting 1 and Intro to Children’s Theatre students engaged in performance-based, interactive theatre projects in area elementary schools and in conjunction with Willard Library. KCC also was active this past year in presenting performances in the Binda for the community outside of academics. The College partnered with the Battle Creek Community Foundation’s Saga Presents initiative Dec. 5 for a “Recalculating! Storytelling Show & Reception” event featuring community members sharing stories about changing directions. On Jan. 13, the KCC Foundation presented award-winning, world-renowned magician Stuart MacDonald to raise money for student scholarships. And on Feb. 22, KCC’s Student Life office presented historical interpreter, actress, educator and writer Dr. Daisy Century for a one-woman show about the life of Harriet Tubman as part of the College’s series of events celebrating Black History Month.

ART KCC hosts several art exhibits in the College’s Eleanor R. and Robert A. DeVries Gallery in the Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center each year. Last year, visiting artists participating in solo exhibitions at KCC included painter Craig Bishop in September and October 2017; photographer Adriane Little in November 2017; painter Janice Garrett in January and February 2018; and multimedia artist Martin Hubbard in March 2018. KCC also hosted “Photographs from the Archives: KCC 60th Anniversary Celebration Art Exhibition” – featuring photos from the KCC archives – from May through September 2017; an exhibit of student art as part of the College’s Annual Student Art Exhibition in April and May, through which KCC recognized two dozen artists with awards; and student and community art created by U.S. military

veterans as part of the College’s annual Veterans Month Creative Works Exhibit in the Emory Morris Library in November. The final art exhibit of the academic year opened in June and featured student photos from the College’s summer Landscape Photography class. KCC’s investment in the arts went beyond hosting art exhibits. The College sponsored Battle Creek artist and KCC student Jaziel Pugh’s “Monarchs, Muhammad and Bees” mural as part of the second annual Color the Creek mural and street art festival in the summer of 2017, and in 2018 installed 10 new sculptures from artists around the country on the College’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek through a collaboration between the Art Department and the KCC Foundation’s Art on Campus initiative.

NEW CONSTRUCTION AND RENOVATION

CAPITAL MILLAGE

For the entire 2017-18 academic year, the College’s Athletics and Physical Education programs were displaced from their home in the Miller Physical Education Building as the old facility was demolished and replaced with a new building. Men’s and women’s basketball and women’s volleyball home games were played at the Battle Creek Central Fieldhouse; physical education classes were taught at the Battle Creek Family YMCA; and KCC Athletics offices were temporarily located in the lower level of the Learning Resource Center on the North Avenue campus. Construction on the new Miller Building continued throughout the winter and spring and was completed in the summer of 2018. The $10 million project, funded by the College’s capital millage, included a new 39,000-square-foot facility with a larger gymnasium, larger weight/fitness room, aerobics classroom and modern spaces for locker rooms, restrooms, trainers and referees. An enclosed, heated batting/pitching facility was constructed adjacent to the Miller Building.

In 2012, voters in the KCC tax district renewed a .75-mill capital millage for 15 years to pay for renovations of the College’s aging facilities. KCC has used local millage money to leverage additional local, state and federal funding for renovations and additions at the Binda Performing Arts Center, Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center, Regional Manufacturing Technology Center, Eastern Academic Center and the Miller Physical Education Building.

Also in the summer of 2018, work began on a $4.3 million renovation of the KCC Regional Manufacturing Technology Center, thanks to a $2.15 million appropriation from the State of Michigan, $1.075 million from the Battle Creek Tax Increment Finance Authority, $250,000 from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and $875,000 from local taxpayers by way of KCC’s voter-approved capital millage. The $4.3 million upgrade, designed to prolong the life of the building, will include a reconfiguration of spaces to serve local employers, dedicated space for Michigan Works! personnel, replacement of the building’s heating and cooling system, replacement of electrical

infrastructure, expansion of instructional space and repaving of drives and parking lots. The renovation will affect about 40,000 square feet of the 48,400 square-foot facility. In February 2018, the KCC Board of Trustees approved the expenditure of $3.75 million for projects contained in the College’s 15-year capital plan. The following projects began in May, with completion targeted for Fall 2018: > CREATING ALL-GENDER RESTROOMS IN MULTIPLE CAMPUS BUILDINGS AND THE REGIONAL CENTERS > CREATING NURSING MOTHERS’ ROOMS IN MULTIPLE CAMPUS BUILDINGS AND THE REGIONAL CENTERS >

UPGRADING EXISTING RESTROOMS WITH NEW FINISHES AND IN FULL COMPLIANCE WITH THE LATEST AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT STANDARDS

STRATEGIC PLANNING

The College continued its multi-year strategic planning process in 2017-18, narrowing a series of ideas and objectives into three major goals related to accreditation, equity and inclusion and institutional effectiveness.

HIGHER LEARNING COMMISSION ACCREDITATION KCC has been continually accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and its predecessor, the North Central Association, since 1965. In 2016, the HLC determined that KCC had satisfied all accreditation benchmarks since the last full accreditation visit in 2011-12. As KCC looks toward the next HLC visit in 2021-22, the institution is developing a more robust approach to its assessment of student success. As part of that approach, the College in 2017-18 created a three-year plan, started assessing revised syllabi, course learning outcomes, began establishing program level learning outcomes and scheduled the implementation of student supports for Fall 2018.

OPEN EDUCATION RESOURCES

Open Education Resources (OER) are teaching, learning and research materials that are available in the public domain or released under an intellectual property license for free use.

IN MAY 2018, AFTER MUCH WORK BY KCC’S ACADEMIC DEANS AND DEPARTMENT CHAIRS, KELLOGG COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND WESTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY SIGNED AN INSTITUTIONAL AGREEMENT FOR THE ARTICULATION OF 20 DEGREE PROGRAMS.

!-KCC-AR-FINAL.indd 24

KCC established its OER Task Force in March 2017 to expand OER awareness and engagement at KCC; facilitate faculty adoption of OER to ensure textbook affordability and accessibility for KCC students; collaborate with other Michigan community colleges in statewide OER initiatives; and to build further institutional capacity for OER at KCC. Initially, the impact of the Task Force’s OER faculty grant awards from the KCC Foundation resulted in $29,000 in cost savings for KCC students as a result of only limited testing. Faculty members continued to expand their use of OER across the institution.

GUIDED PATHWAYS

KCC is working with most other community colleges in Michigan on the ongoing Guided Pathways Initiative. The goals of the initiative are to increase student success, retention and completion through a First Year Experience, acceleration through Developmental Education, and increased structure in program pathways leading to degree completion and/or transfer. KCC HAS DEVELOPED A ROBUST FIRST YEAR EXPERIENCE THAT INCLUDES MANDATORY ORIENTATION, ADVISING AND A FIRST YEAR SEMINAR FOR ALL NEW-TO-KCC STUDENTS. Efforts to accelerate students needing Developmental Education include review and revision of placement criteria and offering English Language Learning in place of traditional transitional reading and writing courses. Development of pathways for degree programs has been completed and articulation agreements are in place for many programs. Faculty will continue to work with the MiTransfer Network to develop statewide articulation agreements for many popular transfer majors.

EARLY COLLEGE/DUAL ENROLLMENT

By the end of the 2017-18 fiscal year, KCC had active agreements with 14 school districts to collaborate on the delivery of early college programming, which enables high school students to complete college course-work over several years at little or no tuition cost. When early college was first available at KCC in 2015-16, there were 28 students enrolled. The next year, there were 103. And in 2017-18, there were 227. Active agreements include Battle Creek Public Schools, Bellevue Community Schools, Calhoun Area Career Center, Coldwater Community Schools, Eastern Calhoun Early College, Gull Lake Community Schools, Harper Creek Community

!-KCC-AR-FINAL.indd 25

Schools, Hastings Area School System, Homer Community Schools, Lakeview School District, Pansophia Academy, Pennfield Schools, Quincy Community Schools and Union City Community Schools. In addition to formal early college programs, hundreds of students in dozens of area school districts dual-enrolled at KCC in 2017-18.

CENTER FOR INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENESS KCC created the Center for Institutional Effectiveness in August 2017 to sustain a culture of positive change, continuous improvement, and collaborative innovation across KCC by supporting strategic planning and accreditation processes; promoting and expanding creative and innovative collaborative practices; coordinating data collection and reporting for compliance and quality assurance; providing assessment and analysis of institutional services; and managing intellectual property and creative commons licensing. During the CIE’s first year, staff conducted an internal assessment of KCC’s overall institutional effectiveness, which included a series of interviews with representative stakeholders, in order to establish a baseline for further capacity building. The CIE has since received funding to hire a programmer/analyst and a staff position to support planned CIE initiatives, including the production of new standardized reports and dashboards. The CIE is also undertaking, with the Faculty Senate, a study of the student faculty evaluation process; providing support for HLC accreditation; and preparing, with the Instruction and Student Services Divisions, for the Spring 2019 administration of formal surveys of student engagement.

TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES

In May 2018, KCC and Western Michigan University signed an Institutional Articulation Agreement that includes agreements for articulation of 20 degree programs with more to be added in 2018-19. As a result of the Guided Pathways initiative, the College continues to actively pursue additional articulated transfer pathways at many state universities, thanks to the ongoing work of academic department chairs and faculty members across the college. KCC currently maintains multiple articulation agreements with colleges and universities in Michigan and surrounding areas, including, Central Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University, Ferris State University, Franklin University, Grand Valley State University, Lake Superior State University, Kettering University, Michigan State University, Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, Oakland University, Olivet College, Siena Heights University, Spring Arbor College, Trine University, University of Michigan, University of Phoenix and Walsh College.

EQUITY AND INCLUSION

In 2017-18, as part of a strategic institutional goal, the College took several steps forward in pursuit of becoming an equity-minded organization. The KCC President’s Council engaged in a two-day training with Dr. Damon A. Williams, one of the nation’s recognized experts in strategic diversity leadership, social impact and organizational change.

WORKFORCE TRAINING

Kellogg Community College’s strategies for connecting students to jobs doesn’t stop at the classroom door. Through KCC’s Workforce Solutions Department, area employers and students interested in joining the manufacturing, health care and service fields get a customized, costeffective and thorough experience. Kellogg Advanced Manufacturing Assembly is part of Workforce Solutions’ Innovative Accelerated Credentialed Training program and prepares students for entry-level jobs in the manufacturing environment. iACT also provides Nursing Assistant Training. Workforce Solutions works with the greater business and industry community to develop training opportunities for employees. That includes a needs assessment, course design and development, customized training materials and consultation. Training courses include manufacturing, safety, computer and software, health care, business leadership and quality control areas. KCC’S CAREER AND EMPLOYMENT SERVICES IS ANOTHER WAY THE COLLEGE CONNECTS STUDENTS TO THE JOBS THEY NEED. THROUGH THE COLLEGE CENTRAL NETWORK, EMPLOYERS CAN CREATE ACCOUNTS AND POST AVAILABLE JOBS. STUDENTS CAN GET RESUME AND INTERVIEW GUIDANCE, AND UPLOAD APPLICATIONS AND RESUMES TO THE NETWORK.

The College created an Equity and Inclusion Committee with a mission of assessing the systems, culture and climate at the College through an equity lens. The committee, whose members are KCC employees, is to develop recommendations that foster a more inclusive culture for students and employees. The committee’s objectives include building capacity for equity through workshops and trainings; cultivating an environment that protects individuals who have been marginalized; gathering and analyzing data, including climate studies and demographics; and serving as a resource for the College. The College in early 2018 created an Accessibility Task Force to develop and promote the overall accessibility of Kellogg Community College in relation to Americans with Disabilities Act compliance for students, staff and the community. The task force was charged with identifying ADA deficiencies, developing an Accessibility in Technology Policy – which the Board of Trustees approved in February 2018 – and recommending actions and trainings to assist the institution’s ongoing efforts to address gaps in accessibility. Based on the task force’s recommendations, the College has joined the Michigan Colleges Online Community of Practice and contracted with Michigan State University for consulting services. Also in 2017-18, the College worked with an architectural firm, Mathison Mathison Architects of Grand Rapids, to survey all restrooms within KCC’s facilities for the purpose of identifying spaces that could be designated, converted or created as all-gender restrooms and nursing mothers’ spaces. In 2018, renovation and construction began on the first phase of those rooms.

ONGOINGWORK

In addition, the Center for Diversity and Innovation began refocusing its efforts to expand the College’s internal capacity for building equitable practices and policies for the benefit of KCC students and employees.

FINANCIAL AID KCC is one of the most affordable community colleges in Michigan and distributes millions of dollars in aid each year via grants, scholarships, campus employment funds and loans. Financial aid experts guide students through processes including completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for a variety of offerings, including Pell grants, work-study and veterans assistance. KCC also participates in the Legacy Scholars program and offers early college and dualenrollment opportunities for high school students, all of which allow students to attend KCC while paying little to no tuition.

AFFORDABLE

Among Michigan’s community colleges, KCC is consistently ranked as one of the most affordable. A KCC education is available at a fraction of the cost that students pay at state universities. For many dual-enrolled high school students, including those in early college programs, tuition is covered 100 percent by state funding.

FRIENDS OF KCC Thank you for taking the time to review the 2017-18 annual report. This information offers meaningful insight with regard to our hard work, investment and success. Our achievements are shared victories and are only possible with your sustainable support, and we thank you. I am proud to share some of our achievements from this past year, including the raising of over $1 million in contributions. We, once again, hosted a successful Bruin Scholarship Open in August followed by a fun-filled Bid a Brighter Future and Magic Show event in January. In our scholarship program, we received 430 applications and recommended awards in an amount exceeding $371,000. Fifteen students were aided by our Beyond Tuition emergency assistance fund and we awarded more than $40,000 in grants, including the Open Education Resource Pilot Project. I am equally excited that we successfully completed the fundraising campaign to start the first year of the College’s new Agriculture Operations Certificate program in partnership with Michigan State University, supported the installation of 10 new sculptures on loan through our Art on Campus initiative, and began the design and capital campaign plan for the North End Gateway Project. Our Foundation has made tremendous strides since its inception in 1998 and we continue to strengthen our financial assets, partnerships

and outreach efforts. Over the coming year, College leadership will be engaged in the Michigan Community College Association Fundraising Academy. Our participation is driven by the growing needs of the student population and our vision for graduates who are marketable and engaged members of the workplace. With rapid changes in higher education delivery and requests for financial aid and scholarship funds growing, our task will be challenging. Yet, we are energized by the ambitious opportunity to heighten our efforts and have a more significant impact. You are helping us make a difference. Thanks to your generosity, KCC scholarship recipients can focus on their studies and worry less about their finances. Each fall at the Foundation’s Celebration of Donors and Scholars, we hear stories about how donors, like you, have changed lives. To this day, these stories continue to inspire me and remind me of the work we do and the difference we make. On behalf of the Foundation Board, I thank you for your continued support of our students, our College and our community. Together we forge into the future with determination and enthusiasm to continue KCC’s exceptional legacy. TERESA DURHAM Executive Director, KCC Foundation

JULIA CORRINE DILWORTH MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP John Dilworth, a retired Kellogg Community College professor, former chair of the Social Sciences Department and current KCC Foundation Board of Directors member, created the Julia Corrine Dilworth Memorial Scholarship and the Deborah A. Dilworth Memorial Scholarship. “I’M DEVOTED TO HIGHER EDUCATION, AND REALLY DEVOTED TO STUDENTS AND STUDENT SUCCESS, AS ALL OF US SHOULD BE,” DILWORTH SAID. “THERE’S NOTHING IN IT FOR ANY OF US IF THEY DON’T SUCCEED.” That devotion was also in Dilworth’s aunt Julia, who grew up in Piqua, Ohio. There, armed with only a high school diploma and industrious attitude, she became vice president of a bank and created, with her siblings, scholarships for a local Catholic high school. Julia died in 2017 at age 105. Dilworth and his relatives knew a KCC scholarship would carry on her tradition of promoting education. “She’s really been very philanthropic over her years, very generous,” Dilworth said. “I just thought, well, in honor of her, we’ll set up a scholarship for a business woman at KCC.” Dilworth’s wife, Deb, died of cancer in 2007 after a lifetime of working in social work and early childhood education. The scholarship in her name is for KCC Early Childhood Education and Human Services students.

FOUNDATIONS SUPPORT AGRICULTURAL AND MANUFACTURING PROGRAMS Among the new scholarship opportunities offered by the KCC Foundation is the KCC/MSU Ag Certificate Scholarship, an endowed scholarship for Marshall High School graduates interested in studying in KCC’s Agricultural Operations Program. The scholarship was established with an initial gift of $50,000 from the Cronin Foundation. A partnership with Michigan State University that launched last fall, the program offers students the opportunity to earn an Associate in General Studies degree at KCC while simultaneously earning an Agricultural Operations Certificate through MSU, with all coursework completed entirely at KCC. Plans are under way to expand the partnership to include a credential in food processing. TO ASSIST IN THE FIRST-YEAR OPERATIONS OF THE AG OPS PROGRAM, THE CRONIN FOUNDATION CONTRIBUTED $10,000 FOLLOWING GIFTS AND GRANTS FROM DR. RUSSELL AND LOU ANN MAWBY, THE W.K. KELLOGG FOUNDATION, ANDERSON FOUNDATION, GUIDO A. AND ELIZABETH H. BINDA FOUNDATION, MARSHALL COMMUNITY FOUNDATION AND DUPONT PIONEER. Ronald DeGraw, secretary and treasurer of the Cronin Foundation, said the agricultural program funding is meant to combat the “one form fits all curriculum”

!-KCC-AR-FINAL.indd 37

that doesn’t always suit students more interested in pursuing a trade as a path to a career as opposed to an academic path. It’s a purpose in line with an additional $80,000 in Cronin funding that went to Marshall Public Schools and Kellogg Community College to support the purchase of KCC Advanced Manufacturing Assembly (KAMA) equipment and training services to be offered at the Marshall Opportunity School in Albion. The Battle Creek Community Foundation’s commitment to supporting high-quality educational opportunities resulted in an additional grant of $10,000 to complete the project in time for the first cohort of students to begin training in Fall 2018. “We are all aware of the current shortage of available employees in today’s economy, especially technically trained employees,” DeGraw said. Funding to encourage students to pursue careers through such agricultural and manufacturing programs could, DeGraw said, “ultimately restore our middle class.” “Hopefully the introduction of these programs will give the students an opportunity to learn a trade which will enable them to be gainfully employed at a decent wage,” he said.

HELP FROM THE BEYOND TUITION FUND It’s hard to imagine one book standing in the way of a college student’s success. That was exactly the situation when a Kellogg Community College instructor approached the KCC Foundation with this concern. A student enrolled in a math course was unable to afford the textbook and therefore intended to drop the course until a later date. The KCC Foundation was able to help the student by purchasing the book from the Beyond Tuition Fund, which provides monetary assistance for expenses over and above tuition costs. Since its inception in 2003, the Beyond Tuition Fund has provided emergency financial assistance to students recommended by KCC’s Support Services Department, helping support students with needs related to child care, transportation, housing, heating and additional educational needs such as books.

Through the generosity of KCC employees, retirees, community members and past fundraising events such as Salute to Leadership and the College’s 60th Anniversary Gala Celebration, this fund continues to be vital to assuring students meet their educational goals.

DANYELLE GREGORY PUTS STUDENTS FIRST AS A HIGHER ED PROFESSIONAL Kellogg Community College alumna Danyelle Gregory gained valuable experience from her time spent at KCC between 2007 and 2009, which helped her decide which career path she wanted to pursue. Gregory, 31, was a Gold Key Scholar at KCC who initially planned on becoming a physical therapist. However, after working as a student worker for the Legacy Scholars and Upward Bound programs, she fell in love with college access work. “I realized that my passion lies with serving the under-served and providing support and access to students and families,” Gregory says. Now Gregory has a master’s degree and oversees the Michigan GEAR UP Program – a college access program similar to the Upward Bound Program at KCC – as coordinator of pre-college programs in the Office of Multicultural Student Services at Ferris State University. She credits KCC with shaping who she is as a higher education and student affairs professional.

I FEEL THAT I HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO MYSELF AND THE STUDENTS I SERVE TO PAY IT FORWARD. DANYELLE GREGORY

!-KCC-AR-FINAL.indd 38

“KCC groomed and cared enough about me to ensure that resources and support were available,” Gregory says. “I feel that I have a responsibility to myself and the students I serve to pay it forward.” Today Gregory is working on a Doctorate in Community College Leadership at Ferris State University, with hopes to graduate in April 2019. Eventually she’d like to become a dean of student life at a community college or a small four-year school, but her ultimate goal is to become a vice president of student affairs. “KCC strongly influenced my passion for serving students and taught me that students are first priority,” Gregory says. “I know that if it had not been for the support and resources I received at KCC, I would not be where I am today. So to KCC and all faculty, staff and students, I say thank you for being my foundation.”

SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT PURSUES NEW CAREER AFTER ARMY SERVICE Jermaine Wright has been many things over the years: father, traveler, soldier. His role as a Kellogg Community College student, though, is helping him prepare for a new one. Wright, of Battle Creek, has a long-term goal of becoming a nurse anesthetist and is working on his associate degree in nursing. After that, he plans to get a bachelor’s degree and doctorate in nursing. Wright received a KCC Foundation Scholarship, which he found out about by talking to teachers. “A lot of the staff know I’m a single father with four kids; I have full custody of three of those children,” Wright said, adding that he’s working full-time. Originally from South Carolina, Wright attended Lakeview High School, then joined the Army, where he was a signals collection analyst - “I can’t really say too much about what I did,” Wright said with a laugh - he returned to Battle Creek at the end of his service. Wright said the Army gave him a chance to travel and made him financially stable, but being close to home is one reason why Wright chose KCC. “It’s right here in Battle Creek,” Wright said.

KCC SET THE STAGE FOR A LIFE OF SERVICE FOR GREG MOORE While a student at KCC in the 1980s, alumnus Greg Moore was president of student government and the College Republicans, was an active member of the Benjamin Franklin Scholars – the precursor to today’s Gold Key Scholars – and worked his way through school as a tutor at KCC and as an ancillary staff member at the hospital next door to campus. He graduated from KCC with associate degrees in arts, business and general studies in 1986 before transferring to Western Michigan University, where he graduated in 1989 with a bachelor’s degree in human resource management and a minor in real estate. It was Moore’s experiences with the Benjamin Franklin Scholars that really stand out to him today, especially the group’s creation of Takasaki Park, a Japanese garden area located directly across the street from KCC’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek. “That was our largest, most involved and stressful project,” Moore says. It was Moore’s idea to create the park in honor of Battle Creek’s sister city, Takasaki, Japan, and he led the group through the long and complicated process of getting the required approvals from the city, fundraising, cleaning up the river and shoring up the bank, hand-setting the flagpoles and actually building the pathways, monuments and gateway that give the park its signature look.

Athens, Emmett, Leroy and Newton townships as a member of the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners for nine and a half years. He also worked as Sen. Mike Nofs’ chief of staff for 13 years starting in 2004. Today Moore works as the Consumers Energy Community Affairs Manager for Barry, Branch, Calhoun and St. Joseph counties. It’s in his latest role that Moore has had the opportunity to come back to KCC and have a hand in another student project: Consumers Energy provided $6,000 worth of energy rebates to the College for a Phi Theta Kappa project involving the purchase of energy efficient lightbulbs this past spring. “KCC is a great way to transition from being a high school student into really making a difference in the community,” Moore says. “As I look back, it’s not just what you learn, it’s the support you get. The people at KCC provided the support. They never said you couldn’t do it, and they always encouraged.”

Moore went on to serve in many capacities throughout the community, including representing

!-KCC-AR-FINAL.indd 39

Sara Parks isn’t sure where her art will take her in life, but she knows she wants to create. “My main area of interest is animation and character design,” Parks, of Marshall, said, “particularly in animated film or video game design. That’s just my bread and butter. That’s my dream area.” Parks is getting help reaching her dream thanks to a Kellogg Community Board of Trustees Scholarship. After hearing teachers tell students to find and apply for scholarships, Parks found out about the KCC Foundation Gold Key Scholarship and applied. She didn’t get it, but, Parks said, the Foundation encouraged her to apply for a Board of Trustees Scholarship. The scholarship awards recipients with up to $3,500 for in-district tuition and fees for one academic year at KCC. It can be renewed for a second year if the recipient maintains eligibility. “I’m very humbled to have been chosen,” Parks said.

FOR MOORE AND THE OTHERS IN THE GROUP, IT WAS A LABOR OF LOVE. “I’ve always felt that community service was critically important, and to this day it is,” Moore says. “My time at KCC really built and set the stage for everything else I did later in life, including my involvement in community service.”

I’VE ALWAYS FELT THAT COMMUNITY SERVICE IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT. GREG MOORE

The atmosphere at KCC and its art programs have had an early impact on Parks. “It’s a friendly environment that’s dedicated to building a person up and expanding their repertoire,” Parks said. “I’m not just getting design or animation; I’m getting so much more than classes. I’m getting peers in the field.”
