Grinnell Science Project

The Grinnell Science Project is committed to developing the talents of all students interested in science and mathematics, especially those from groups underrepresented in the sciences -- students of color, first-generation college students, and women in physics, mathematics and computer science.

Evaluation and Assessment

The Evaluation and Assessment program of the Division of Student Affairs (DSA) assists colleagues in making evidence-based decisions for their programs and services. With increased calls for greater accountability in higher education, it is imperative that student affairs educators rely on both empirical and trustworthy data when designing intentional and student-centered learning environments. This program assists DSA staff in demonstrating how effectively they fulfill their department’s mission and desired learning outcomes.

Macy House

The Jesse Macy House at 1205 Park Street opened in spring 2008— a newly renovated home for many of the College's distinguished programs. The house brings together programs that regularly enrich the lives of Grinnellians by bringing special speakers and performers to campus, providing new and unusual research opportunities, and bridging the boundaries between academic disciplines.

 

French

The French program explores the diverse literatures, identities, and cultures of the French-speaking world. All courses are taught in French, provide intensive work in oral and written expression, and are approached from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students may meet prestigious artists, intellectuals, and government figures hosted by the department.

Arabic

The Arabic program introduces students to Arabic language and culture. All courses are taught in Arabic and  provide intensive work in oral and written expression. The language curriculum can be complemented with courses on the Middle East and North Africa offered by departments such as History, Religious Studies, and Anthropology and with off-campus study program options.

Global Grinnell
