As Interim President, I am committed to promoting an inclusive and collaborative environment on campus where all students, faculty, and staff feel welcomed. Our Student Union & Intercultural Center, with a central mission of inclusion, will meet this aim.

With a campus rich in diversity – almost half of our student body was born outside the United States and 16% of our students speak a second language – our Student Union & Intercultural Center will celebrate this diversity through programming, events, and activities.

Continuing the vision of former KCC President Farley Herzek, the Center will also provide a space for our students to feel at home while on campus, serving as a comfortable environment to rest, recharge, and interact with one another.

Plans are now under way to realize this project and I look forward to working with you.

Interim President Peter Cohen
