The role of the College’s trustees is, and always has been, to assure the “great and lasting good” of Grinnell College. Through their commitment to institutional stewardship, bold financial investments, and prudent management, the trustees have allowed Grinnell to develop its special character as an institution that combines academic quality with a service mission. The College’s rich history and strong endowment are a testament to its trustees’ decisions, financial acumen, dedication, and faithful service.
Daily sessions from 9 a.m.–noon and from 1:30–4:30 p.m.
Iowa Private College Week (IPCW) is a weeklong program during which independent Iowa colleges and universities invite prospective students and their families to explore their campuses. It's a great time for prospective students to learn about Grinnell’s academic and social opportunities and to meet with faculty, coaches, students and staff.
