Global Grinnell

"Grinnell put us together. This is the meeting place," says Serbian Kristina Duric '13. She and Californian Cynthia Amezcua '14 talk about international friendships, the global Grinnell family, and living abroad.

Wilson Program in Enterprise and Leadership

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.

Peace and Conflict Studies Committee

This advisory committee for the Peace and Conflict Studies Program includes faculty, students, and staff who provide the campus with tools for understanding, managing, and creatively transforming conflicts. We use funds from a modest endowment to plan events, support internships, fund attendance at conferences, and respond to programming requests.  We also encourage the curricular development of peace and conflict studies by identifying related courses and by supporting short courses, trainings, and workshops.

Here we have another late report. Apparently Africa is still in my blood and I am still doing things slowly. I am back in the States. So is my luggage. So is Lauren. The latter two almost didn't make it. Just as my luggage was lost when I arrived in Lesotho last January, it was also lost when I left Lesotho this December. Just as Lauren realized her money belt was missing when we arrived at the Joburg airport last January, she realized her ticket was missing at the Joburg airport the day we were leaving this December. But in the end we and our luggage arrived back in the States.
