Join Us To Transform The Old Kletz

Remember the Kletz in the lower level of DeWitt? It’s moved to the Bultman Student Center. Now, we have a vision to transform that space and create a place for students to connect with alumni, employers, coaches and mentors as they prepare for The Future of Work. This space will be staffed in collaboration with the Boerigter Center for Calling and Career, the Office of Alumni and Family Engagement, and the Center for Leadership.

We’ve already raised over 80% of the funds needed to make this happen. We need your help crossing the finish line in order to begin construction later this summer!

Specifically, this project will:

  • Create a welcoming home, adjacent to the bookstore, for alumni and families to return for lifelong learning opportunities.
  • Provide a collaborative environment for student projects that tackle real-world challenges with alumni, families and employers.
  • Host interviews with recruiters from top organizations as well as networking events, panels and presentations showcasing alumni career paths.
  • Build spaces that integrate technology and prepare students for The Future of Work…a future of transformation, innovation and creativity!

Recognition Opportunities:

This 9,000 square foot renovation will have a variety of spaces regularly used by Hope students, alumni, and other members of the Hope community. If you or your company are interested in naming opportunities for any of these spaces, please contact Shonn Colbrunn at or 616.395.7950.
