Community Partnerships, Planning, & Research

Working with Grinnellians, for Grinnellians, Toward the Common Good

The Office of Community Partnerships, Planning, and Research serves as a collaborative thought partner with college and community changemakers working toward the common good. Bringing together different areas of expertise, the office supports research, planning, and partnerships alongside those who are working to improve the lives of all Grinnellians — including Grinnell College students, employees, and members of the broader community. Guided by the principles of collective impact, nonprofit networks, and diplomacy, the office connects campus and community planning by identifying and aligning information, people, and resources to increase capacity toward common goals. ​

We invite you to learn more about our office offerings. Together, we are experienced in strategic research, strategic planning, community relations, community development, grant making, outreach programs and events, and collective impact initiatives. On topics that concern campus and community, we can help you: 

  • engage and convene
  • research and learn
  • plan and strategize for action
  • connect with people, groups, and resources
