Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center opened its doors to the public on Sept. 17, 1951. The Michigan Hotel Association sought to create a facility in which they could house everything needed to hold an educational conference under one roof as a sort of laboratory in hotel management. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation financed the building, donating $1.4 million, as a means to provide a venue for adult education. With a land grant and an additional $500,000 from the State Board of Agriculture, Michigan State University became the site of the first Kellogg Center for Continuing Education — an important milestone in the history of MSU. Today, there are 11 Kellogg Centers throughout the U.S.
Sustainability and Recycling Programs
Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center is a partner in the Clean the World program. Our housekeeping team collects unused soap and bottled amenities from guest rooms. We sort the products and return them to a Clean the World processing center. Clean the World takes the unused items, sterilizes them and redistributes repackaged soaps to those in need all over the world. As a part of the program, Kellogg receives quarterly impact statements that report how much soap we save. For more information, visit cleantheworld.org.
Sustainable Food Options
We incorporate many sustainable food options into our menus at the Kellogg Center, providing our Spartan guests with healthy and locally sourced products.
Student Team Members
We employ many student team members from MSU’s School of Hospitality Business program. They gain valuable real-world skills by serving our guests at the Kellogg Center and in the State Room Restaurant.
