The Office of Community Enhancement and Engagement supports the College’s core mission by helping our hometown to become an even stronger place to live, work, and study.  Serving as a liaison between Grinnell College and the surrounding community, the office administers the College’s gifts and grants, and actively facilitates other town/gown connections to enhance the experience and vitality of life in Grinnell.
