 Next KVCC Foundation grant deadline is Dec. 23

For the 2009-10 academic year, the KVCC Foundation has established funding-request deadlines for internal grant proposals.

Those faculty and/or administrators seeking financial support from the foundation must make plans in advance and adhere to the established deadlines.

            Here’s the schedule for the next round:

            Proposal deadline:  Dec. 23; decision by the KVCC Foundation Board of Trustees, Jan. 29.

            Deadline:  April 23; decision, May 7.

            For more information, contact Steve Doherty, KVCC director of development and foundation executive director, at extension 4442 or sdoherty@kvcc.edu.

            Earlier this semester, the foundation board approved a $2,200 grant, submitted by Marie Rogers, Helen Palleschi and Daniel Cunningham, on behalf of the Instructional Development Advisory Committee. 

            It will co-fund a three-hour workshop for faculty on “What the Best College Teachers Do to Promote Inclusion” next Jan. 7 and the purchase 50 copies of Beverly Tatum’s book titled “Can We Talk About Race.”

            It will help lay the groundwork for the Kalamazoo Valley Museum hosting a major exhibition on race in the fall of 2010.  The exhibit will be the focal point for a communitywide examination of the racial issues that too often tarnish the nation’s democracy and Constitution.
