Kalamazoo Valley Community College (KVCC), established in 1966, is a two-year public community college located in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The college operates multiple campuses, including the main Texas Township Campus known for its modern architectural designs, the Arcadia Commons Campus in downtown Kalamazoo, and the Groves Center, which hosts advanced technology and workforce development programs. KVCC's setting provides a blend of both suburban and urban experiences, given its proximity to the city center and more expansive township layout. The academic profile of KVCC includes a wide range of associate degree programs, certificates, and transfer programs with a focus on areas such as health sciences, business, manufacturing, and culinary arts. While the college maintains an open-door admissions policy, it emphasizes personalized attention to student enrollment and success.
