The Kalamazoo Literacy Council is the recipient of the 2014 West Michigan Federation of College Educators (WMFCE) Community Outreach Grant. The grant provides a one-time contribution of $1,000 to a Kalamazoo-based charitable organization chosen by the members of the Professional Instructors Organization, the Teaching Assistants Union, and the KVCC Federation of Teachers, to support to a member-nominated charitable organization, encourage volunteer opportunities for WMFCE members, educate WMFCE members regarding the charity’s specific goals and programs, and to promote labor solidarity in the Kalamazoo area.

A very special thank you to Erin Praedel (center) for nominating the KLC and to Tom Kostrzewa (left, President of the PIO) for presenting the award to the KLC Board President Antonio Mitchell.

New Downtown Campus for KVCC: Will it be called the Schlack Campus?

Dear Friends,

Please take a look at the following article.  This provides the most current information on the new campus slated to be completed by 2015.

Isn't it interesting that the college can spend millions of dollars on a new campus, but yet, the part-time faculty haven't had a raise in three years...we continue to make just above minimum wage?

The administration has now provided proof that new buildings are more important than those who make the difference in 11,000 lives.
