New psychologist/training coordinator to begin in July

SHACS is pleased to announce that A.J. Williams will be joining our team in July as psychologist and training coordinator. A.J. comes to Grinnell from Oregon State University. A.J.’s experience in an APA-approved training site like OSU will be a great boon for us as we design and launch a pre-doctoral psychology internship program.  In addition, the expertise and diversity she brings to our staff will serve our students tremendously.

Climbing Wall

Located in the Bear athletic and recreation center, the climbing wall offers bouldering, top rope climbing, autobelays and lead climbing opportunities. Open sessions are scheduled 4-5 days weekly, with additional specialty sessions for beginners, groups and advanced workshops. The bouldering wall is open most times the center is open. In addition to GORP sponsored climbing times, GORP is happy to schedule sessions for any groups of 6 or more wishing to use the wall.


For the past several years, Andrew Kaufman has been exploring the concept of containment, as well as the tangential ideas of breach and contamination, in a multiplicity of forms that range from painting to installation. Rather than engage with narrative, Kaufman's work seeks to embody these concepts by co-opting their structures, and utilize cultural signifiers that intrinsically allude to the body.
