Founded in 1967, Interfaith Campus Ministry serves the spiritual needs of the students, faculty, staff, and administration of Kent State University at Stark and Stark State College. Over 40 years ago, ICM identified the need for quality, low-cost child care for local families and students. A big factor in this undertaking was understanding that this facility would also need to remain in close proximity to the local schools, to ease the burden of accessibility. After recognizing this urgency, ICM partnered with John Knox Presbyterian Church to launch a convenient preschool and child care center. Years of planning, financial investment, and labor were added to the dream and in 1977 the Interfaith Campus Preschool and Child Care Center became a reality. ICM continues to have oversight of the preschool, and Reverend Michael Gleason meets weekly with the directors to offer additional support!
