Students at Grinnell come from every state and more than 60 countries. As is true for our faculty and staff, students bring varied geographic, ethnic, racial, religious, and socioeconomic experiences to Grinnell—but their common traits far outweigh their differences. Grinnellians are passionate, with intense intellectual curiosity and a lively interest in the world and each other. Together, we form an incredibly close-knit community. Grinnell’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion celebrates and supports our diversity.
