Grinnell College expects that all members of the College community – students, faculty, staff, and friends – should be able to pursue their work and education in a safe environment, free from sexual coercion, violence, or intimidation. The College is committed to fostering a safe campus environment where sexual misconduct and violence are unacceptable, and where survivors or those who believe they were harmed by another person are provided support and avenues of redress as appropriate.

Grinnell College is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for the entire campus community. Because the key to safety and security is being prepared, we have a comprehensive plan in place for organizing, coordinating, and directing available resources toward the management of an emergency.
The International Visiting Fellows program is designed to allow Grinnell faculty to bring scholars and artists from international locations to Grinnell, for a minimum stay of two weeks. Each International Visiting Fellow teaches a short course or course unit within an existing academic department. Fellows also give a public presentation during their stay on campus. This is an excellent way to complement a department’s curriculum and to introduce students to a scholar or artist who works outside the United States.
The media relations team acts as a direct liaison between Grinnell College and both print and broadcast media. Staff issue news releases, communicate Grinnell news and information to media outlets, and facilitate student/faculty interaction with the press.
