The students at the two Kalamazoo College study abroad centers in France (Strasbourg and Clermont-Ferrand) and in other countries are reported safe. K’s Center for International Programs continues to be in contact with students and with program directors in France and other countries. Students are being encouraged to check in with their families and program directors, they are being reminded about safety habits, and they are being advised about possible travel delays.
The College is also addressing the well-being of students from France who are currently studying on campus.
The Kalamazoo College community sends its thoughts and prayers to the people of France.
Michael A. “Mickey” McDonald is the Kalamazoo College Provost. This statement was delivered via email Saturday morning to the College’s students and faculty.
