I like the different definitions behind the definitions. Here’s what I found when I looked up kind and it took me to benevolent:
1. characterized by or expressing goodwill or kindly feelings: a benevolent attitude; her benevolent smile.
2. desiring to help others; charitable: gifts from several benevolent alumni.
3. intended for benefits rather than profit: a benevolent institution.
I especially like the expressions goodwill; desiring to help others; and intended for benefits rather than profit.
That certainly sounds like GCC to me! We are always looking out for our students. When I updated my Canvas announcements for the week, here’s what I included today:
