A Message from KCC’s President

Looking to the future of KCC

Dear Friends,

KCC continues to expand to meet the educational needs of the community and our students. Having successfully completed the construction of the Work Skills Technology Center (WSTC) in 2017, Founders Hall in 2018, and the Apprenticeship Center in 2023 KCC met many of the goals laid out in the 2016 Needs & Feasibility Study. The work continues though.

Over the next two years, KCC will be working with the Oregon Child Development Coalition (OCDC) and Klamath County on the development of property on the corner of So 6th St and Hilyard for a Childcare Learning Center to house both OCDC’s childcare facility and serve as the site for practical education for KCC’s Early Childhood Education, Paraeducator, and the Elementary Education Emphasis programs. The Elementary Education program is offered in partnership with Southern Oregon University (SOU) and allows students to complete an Associates of Arts transfer degree (AAOT) to SOU leading to a Bachelor’s Degree in primary education without ever leaving the Basin.

Additionally, the Childcare Learning Center will provide much needed capacity to serve student parents and the community with high-quality childcare services.

The KCC Cosmetology program will be moving from its current location on East Main St. to KCC’s Main Campus as soon as a new facility can be constructed.

KCC recently embarked on developing its first athletic program, beginning with a soccer (Futbal) club. This addition will require the development of an on-campus soccer pitch in the near future.

And, in the future, KCC will be developing housing on and near campus for students.

These projects continue the tradition of expanding KCC educational and student support opportunities and infrastructure that supports the community through high-quality post-secondary education and workforce development programs.

KCC is in the business of human potential. In our work, we do out of the ordinary things for our students because it is the right thing to do. We are honored that you, our supporters, have come alongside in those efforts, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
