Grinnell College Alternative Break (GCAB) is a student-run organization that offers students the opportunity to travel as members of a fun, safe, and intentional service community during their Fall and Spring breaks. By living and working in the communities they serve, students develop new perspectives, enhance leadership skills, and participate in educational and hands-on community service projects.

Violence, injustice, and intractable conflict are among the most pressing problems we face today. How can we address these problems creatively? The Peace and Conflict Studies Program seeks to give students, faculty, and staff the tools to understand issues underlying conflict and to creatively manage and transform conflict. Our program coordinates peace studies-related courses, a biennial student academic conference, speakers, internships, conflict-resolution workshops, and opportunities to interact with scholars and peacebuilders working in the field.
A strong commitment to social justice and inclusivity dates to the founding of the College in 1846 by transplanted New Englanders with strong abolitionist and social-reformer backgrounds. Early in the College’s history, the town of Grinnell was an important stop on the underground railroad that secretly transported slaves to freedom.
Gain real-world experience, explore opportunities in business, government, and nonprofits, and learn from alumni. The Wilson Program supports interdisciplinary, discovery-mode liberal arts courses, funds mentored student internships in organizations throughout the world, and invites college alumni to return to campus to offer insights and salient experiences derived from creative careers and responsible leadership.
The Rosenfield Program in Public Affairs, International Relations, and Human Rights prepares students for a lifetime of civic engagement and connects the Grinnell community to the broader social and political issues that define the world beyond Grinnell. The program enriches the college curriculum by bringing distinguished scholars, public servants, and commentators to campus and by funding student internships. Rosenfield Program activities contribute to Grinnell’s tradition of social responsibility and help to build a lively academic community that links Grinnell students to the world.
