COVID-19 (Coronavirus) CCE Update

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Kalamazoo College’s decision-making process has been science-based and informed by our local health department, state government and the Centers for Disease Control.

The COVID-19 pandemic reminds us that we are one. Our humanity is global, and so must be our response. We must think of each other as well as ourselves. We encourage you to be open to the changes we must now all adopt, stay healthy, and be mindful of the safety of others. We thank all our students and community partners for the work they do and look forward to continuing the work we do together in the future.

Due to the continued risk for exposure to COVID in our community, the CCE is working closely with our community partners and K students engaged with the community to mitigate risk of exposure. Each student is asked to sign a document agreeing to follow COVID protocols required by the College and the community site. Community partners sign an agreement that outlines both the College’s protocols and the community organizations’ for their site. All parties agree to follow these guidelines.

The CCE Staff can be contacted through email or on Microsoft Teams.
