Grinnell College Alternative Break (GCAB) is a student-run organization that offers students the opportunity to travel as members of a fun, safe, and intentional service community during their Fall and Spring breaks. By living and working in the communities they serve, students develop new perspectives, enhance leadership skills, and participate in educational and hands-on community service projects.

The Liberal Arts in Prison Program is funded almost entirely by private donations and grants. Your gift provides liberal arts education to incarcerated students and fosters Grinnell's commitment to social justice. All donations are tax-deductable.
At Grinnell, a liberal arts education integrates different forms of knowledge, approaches, and ways of thinking. Interdisciplinary (and otherwise integrative) study begins with the first year tutorial and can culminate with a Mentored Advanced Project (MAP), which often crosses disciplines.
In a Mentored Advanced Project (MAP), you’ll work closely with a faculty member on a research or creative project that integrates the knowledge and skills you’ve gained at Grinnell. Many MAPs result in papers, presentations, performances, and exhibits that share the results of the project regionally, nationally — even internationally. Nearly 40 percent of Grinnell students complete a MAP.
The Grinnell College media relations team works directly with media to increase understanding and support of the College among prospective students, alumni and parents, and other constituents. We work with reporters from all types of media, and from all over the U.S. and around the world.
