Mission & Goals

Founded in 2000 to coordinate and advance the different international initiatives on campus, the Center has become the key office for assisting students and faculty to develop their knowledge of the world. The Center provides leadership and support in the following areas:

Macy House

The Jesse Macy House at 1205 Park Street opened in spring 2008— a newly renovated home for many of the College's distinguished programs. The house brings together programs that regularly enrich the lives of Grinnellians by bringing special speakers and performers to campus, providing new and unusual research opportunities, and bridging the boundaries between academic disciplines.

 

Global Grinnell

"Grinnell put us together. This is the meeting place," says Serbian Kristina Duric '13. She and Californian Cynthia Amezcua '14 talk about international friendships, the global Grinnell family, and living abroad.

International Visiting Fellows

The Center for International Studies brings prominent international scholars and artists to campus to teach a short course or a semester-length course within an existing academic department and to offer a public presentation. Each fellow receives a College apartment, an office, a Grinnell email account, a generous stipend, and a welcoming banquet. The Center’s advisory board typically reviews applications a year in advance of the proposed visit.
