Subscribe to WBCKFM on

Kellogg Community College’s recently announced grant for the Center for Diversity and Innovation will help meet the demand and expand programs.

That’s the word from Jorge Zeballos, CDI executive director.

The $800,000 from the Kellogg Foundation helps the center “continue its work promoting racial equity and institutional capacity building in Battle Creek,” the college said in a press release. Zeballos said the center is now working with four Battle Creek school districts, the city’s police and fire departments, among others.
