Kalamazoo College is united in our mission to prepare our graduates to better understand, live successfully within, and provide enlightened leadership to a richly diverse and increasingly complex world. Strong collaboration and leadership from the Board of Trustees, President and President’s Staff are essential to the development and implementation of strategic plans and policies that serve and support the College’s priorities.
