Campus Cleanliness: KCC recently intensified its cleaning and sanitation efforts, directing custodial staff to increase the frequency of cleaning and use of disinfectant on all hard surfaces, door handles, tabletops and more in classrooms, restrooms and offices across College facilities.

KCC employees are individually involved in cleanliness efforts as well. If KCC employees would like additional hand sanitizer or sanitary wipes for their work areas, keyboards, desk phones and the like, they can make their request to KCC’s Institutional Facilities Department by emailing fac_dept@kellogg.edu.
