As it looks toward its third century, Kalamazoo College reaffirms its mission of preparing its graduates to better understand, live successfully within, and provide enlightened leadership to a richly diverse and increasingly complex world.
Kalamazoo College values academic rigor and all components of a liberal arts education embodied in our K-Plan; inclusion and equity; residential experiences for students that contribute to their growth as leaders; sustainability; and mission-driven creativity and innovation.
By fulfilling the priorities set forth in “Advancing Kalamazoo College: A Strategic Vision for 2023,” K will become the definitive leader in integrating academic rigor with life-changing experiential education in a values-driven community.
Next 5 Years
The College will strengthen the K-Plan through continuous innovation; enhance the bonds of community between students, faculty, staff and alumni; strive to match K’s campus and infrastructure to the excellence of its people; and build an endowment that will support these priorities and sustain Kalamazoo College for years to come.
