Kirtland Community College Foundation

The Kirtland Community College Foundation was established in 1972 for the purposes of soliciting funds to augment and extend the financial base of the college. The Foundation is a tax-exempt nonprofit corporation. Funds are used for capital construction, scholarships, library acquisitions, fellowships, faculty improvement grants, and the equipping and staffing of existing programs with modern tools of technology.

The Foundation officers and members work closely with the college board of trustees and the administration. A member of the college board of trustees serves as a liaison of the Foundation and the President of the college serves as secretary of the Foundation.

Kirtland Community College Advisory Committees

Advisory committees for individual occupational programs at Kirtland provide information concerning competencies needed by employees, physical facilities and types of equipment used in the business or industry, technical curriculum content, and recruitment opportunities. Members also assist with promotion of the programs, evaluation of programs, job placement, and work experience. At times advisory members are instrumental in acquiring donations of equipment and supplies for occupational programs.
