Grinnell leadership respects the traditions of the past and is responsive to the needs of current and future students.

Our leadership does not work in a vacuum. Grinnell has a well-earned reputation for open, transparent, respectful discussions about campus issues.  Town hall meetings bring together students faculty and the administration to discuss campus wide topics of interest, and strategic plans reflect input from the campus and alumni community.

The President’s office and administration is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the College.
