The first paper, "The Arcadia Commons Partnership: The Community College and Economic Redevelopment," by Marilyn Schlack, describes the Arcadia Commons, a business-education park in downtown Kalamazoo, developed through the combined efforts of KVCC, area business and financial institutions, and the Kalamazoo Public Museum.

The third paper, "Partnerships in Internationalization: The Title VIa and Beacon Projects," by Theo Sypris, describes KVCC's involvement in a consortium of 15 community colleges in Michigan and Michigan State University, funded to design, establish, and operate a regionally based, globally focussed, "International Studies and Foreign Language Program Development Institute for Community Colleges." The final paper, "Partnerships Across the Disciplines. The Humanities, Science and Technology: Making Connections," by Robert Badra and Helen Palleschi, describes efforts to internationalize the curriculum at KVCC, involving faculty summer institutes and culminating with the establishment of a general education core course examining the relationship of the humanities to science and to technology.
