Community Relations

Campus and Community Relations

Promoting community engagement opportunities is an important part of our office’s role at Grinnell College. An 18-hour vitality is essential to both a thriving community and a thriving campus. Whether that means bringing students to the downtown restaurants and shops or bringing the residents of Grinnell and surrounding area on to campus to enjoy and experience events and activities from a liberal arts perspective. Enriching the quality of life for all Grinnellians is part of our core mission.

Grinnell College has partnered with the Pioneer Bookshop on a December sales promotion since 2013, where 10% of total December sales was directed to the Grinnell Middle School and Grinnell High School libraries. Recognizing the commitment to education and community, over $22,000 has been given to date, allowing the GHS and GMS libraries to enhance their collections and use their budget dollars for immediate needs.
