With three Kalamazoo, Michigan locations - a main campus in Texas Township, the nearby Groves Campus, and Arcadia Commons Campus in downtown Kalamazoo - Kalamazoo Valley Community College offers certificate programs in more than 20 areas of study and associate degrees in 25 others. These include business, healthcare, human and public service, and technical occupations, the latest of which is a pioneering effort in training wind-energy technicians.
Kalamazoo Valley also provides student-placement services and works closely with other institutions to ensure the transfer of students' credits. A fully accredited institution, Kalamazoo Valley offers day and evening, online and weekend classes.
Recently, the college announced the location of a fourth campus planned in downtown Kalamazoo. In cooperation with Bronson Healthcare and Kalamazoo Community Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, Kalamazoo Valley is currently developing a campus focused on wellness and food sustainability.
The new campus will be developed on 13.3 acres of unused land donated by Bronson Healthcare, where Kalamazoo Valley will expand its curriculum to include training in sustainable food production, distribution and preparation; all part of the college’s efforts to increase community understanding of and access to healthy food and nutrition.
The property, near Bronson Methodist Hospital, includes 8.4 acres along Crosstown Parkway east of the City of Kalamazoo’s Crosstown Center, 3.6 acres between Walnut and Dutton Streets, and 1.3 acres north of Crosstown Parkway and south of Dutton Street. Three campus facilities are planned. Kalamazoo Valley will develop one for food production and distribution, a second for nursing, allied health and culinary programs, and the third will be a new psychiatric clinic for KCMHSAS. Classes are expected to open in the fall of 2015.
