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 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.
