Campus Plan

In September, 1999, the Board of Trustees officially accepted the Campus Plan, as proposed by Shepley Bulfinch Richardson and Abbott. The plan, which is merely a framework, responds to the College's present needs and long-term objectives and projects physical space and facilities needs for the next quarter-century.

A Grinnell Education

At the center of a Grinnell education is intensive mentoring of students by the faculty. This mentoring begins in the First-Year Tutorial, the only required course at Grinnell College. While faculty members from all academic departments teach the tutorial and their topics vary widely, every tutorial emphasizes writing, critical thinking and analysis, oral discussion skills, and information literacy. Each tutor also serves as adviser to the tutorial students until they declare a major field of study.
