The Grinnell College Ombuds Office was established to provide an independent, neutral point of view in an informal and confidential environment. The Ombuds will listen and inform, research issues to help generate options, and coach individuals on how to deal with difficult and sensitive situations. As an alternate and informal channel of communication, the Ombuds Office is available to the entire college community – staff, students, faculty and administrators – to address concerns.
The Rosenfield Center is the central gathering place at Grinnell. In addition to space for a range of campus offices, it contains the central dining room and kitchens of the College, the Spencer Grill, the Crady Mail Room, recreational areas and lounges, a multipurpose room, smaller meeting rooms, classrooms, and a gallery. The Rosenfield Center is named after longtime Grinnell College trustee and benefactor Joe Rosenfield ’25.
