WHAT WE DO
The SPARK staff work as a cohesive team to provide holistic support for the SPARK program participants, particularly incoming freshmen. SPARK case managers provide academic support and guidance to incoming freshmen enrolled in remedial Math and English Learning Communities and each continuing SPARK student. Existing KCC case managers support all Fa’15 and Spr’16 continuing students. In addition to academic support, non-academic advising and assistance is provided by the Single Stop coordinator, financial aid counselor, and AssistMe app manager. Students are exposed to a myriad of services available at KCC on a regular basis.
Examples of support services include but are not limited to:
à The Assist Me App
à Single Stop
à Student Wellness Center
à Men’s Resource Center
à Women’s Center
à Office of Military and Veteran Affairs

The Office of Workforce Development, Strategic Community Partnerships & Continuing Education is in place to strengthen existing partnerships, while developing new relationships within the community. Focus is placed on industry, business, and community-based organizations to enhance enrollment in continuing education, workforce training, and degree programs.
