The Office of Community Partnerships, Planning, and Research Launches New Community Connections Initiative
The Office of Community Partnerships, Planning, and Research has launched a new initiative aiming to better connect the local community with Grinnell College events and programs. As a part of this initiative, we are announcing Grinnell College Community Connections as the new name for our department's Facebook page. The Office of Community Partnership, Planning, and Research will continue to manage the page and content under the new naming convention. We encourage Grinnellians to follow the Facebook page for updates, announcements, and event information.
The Office of Community Partnerships, Planning, and Research works toward the common good by serving as a collaborative thought partner with college and community change-makers. Bringing different skills and expertise to the table, staff consults on research, planning, and partnerships with those working to improve the lives of all Grinnellians.
Since 2015 the office, formerly known as the Office of Community Enhancement and Engagement, has served as co-convener of the Grinnell Education Partnership by facilitating alignment towards common goals and coordinating action across groups and organizations.
