Grinnell College President Raynard S. Kington presented a Scholars' Convocation on the State of the College.
After an 18-month community-wide discussion, the Grinnell College Board of Trustees has voted to retain the college's need-blind admission and financial aid policies—for now.
With the vote, the Board instructed the college to deploy new strategies that will enhance net tuition revenues and also affirm the college's commitment to need-blind admission and meeting 100 percent of demonstrated need.
The vote was announced by Grinnell's Board of Trustees at the conclusion of its regularly scheduled meeting on Saturday.
