Grinnell College has chosen six new students to serve partner organizations in the Grinnell community through the Apprenticeships in Non-Profit Management program. The program, inaugurated last year, places Grinnell College students in paid positions with local non-profit organizations.

This spring, the college formed the Environmental Responsibility and Sustainability Advisory Committee to further Grinnell College’s goals of environmental responsibility by assessing current conditions, policies, and actions and advising the community and me on strategies for furthering those goals.
