A new Arthur Vining Davis grant expands program opportunities
At Grinnell, a liberal arts education integrates different forms of knowledge, approaches, and ways of thinking. Interdisciplinary (and otherwise integrative) study begins with the first year tutorial and can culminate with a Mentored Advanced Project (MAP), which often crosses disciplines.
In a Mentored Advanced Project (MAP), you’ll work closely with a faculty member on a research or creative project that integrates the knowledge and skills you’ve gained at Grinnell. Many MAPs result in papers, presentations, performances, and exhibits that share the results of the project regionally, nationally — even internationally. Nearly 40 percent of Grinnell students complete a MAP.
