Priority 5: Invest in our faculty and staff

The ability to serve our students with their varied gifts and interests has always required of the Kalamazoo faculty and staff a particular flexibility and willingness to innovate. Kalamazoo College provides a unique educational experience that joins academic rigor with experiential education. The quality of this combination depends on our outstanding faculty and staff who are committed to student engagement and experiential learning. To attract and retain the necessary talent, the College must address faculty and staff compensation, which is currently well below that of institutions with similar educational outcomes. We also must create a sustainable technology infrastructure for teaching and learning both inside and outside the classroom.
