The Campaign for Kalamazoo College Priority 2

Capital Improvements

The infrastructure improvements contained within the campaign are vital to educational excellence. The improvements we have made, and will make, are part of addressing the needs of the whole student – mind, spirit, and body.
We are making headway on the funds required to build a fitness and wellness center and replace our aging natatorium.

Prior to this campaign, improvements to Upjohn Library Commons created a place for the life of the mind. In this campaign, The Weimer K. Hicks Center renovation created the “hearth” of the campus – a warm, inviting place for connection and rejuvenation. The new Athletic Field Complex kicked off projects to address the physical needs of our students – those who participate in collegiate sport as well as those who are looking for intramural competition and other activities. With both of these projects completed, we already have seen increases in enrollment, an important aspect in the competitive higher education landscape – a real world issue in sustaining an excellent K education. There is still time to celebrate your connection with a personalized brick or locker in the new Athletic Complex.

The recently completed building which houses the Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership, designed by internationally acclaimed architect Jeanne Gang, is a landmark for Kalamazoo and southwest Michigan.

The Campaign for Kalamazoo College calls for $34.5 million for infrastructure improvements, and of that total we have raised nearly $27 million.
