Grinnell’s IRB reviews proposed research projects that use human research participants. Any faculty, staff, or student conducting research on humans, even with minimal risk, needs to submit a proposal of the research project to the IRB. Electronic submission of proposals is expected; the form and well-written project description are emailed to irb[at]grinnell[dot]edu. Please allow up to 10 days for a new submission to be reviewed and a decision rendered.

The Teacher Advisory Committee of local educators meets biannually and reports to the state of Iowa. It enhances the Grinnell College Education Program's communication and cooperation with area schools to provide an excellent pre-service teaching education for Grinnell students, advises faculty on student teaching evaluations, and makes suggestions about enhancing Grinnell’s curriculum. Members serve a two-year term; membership terms are staggered to provide some continuity of membership.
When the 17-year-old Turkish girl came to Grinnell in the mid-‘90s, she could not have imagined that she would return to teach as a Center for International Studies (CIS) fellow among faculty members she so admired.
“It’s a great privilege,” said Funda Soysal ’96, of her recent fellowship and teaching experience in a special topics seminar on “Confluence and Conflict: Turkey as the Cultural Crossroads of Europe and Asia.”
