Connecting Campus and Community for the Common Good
The Office of Community Enhancement & Engagement supports the College’s core mission by helping our hometown to become a thriving destination locally, nationally, and internationally. The office connects campus and community to strengthen local social and economic vitality, enhance quality of life, and create long-term systems change for the benefit of the campus and community. The office supports a variety of partnership projects in areas such as education, healthcare, public infrastructure, downtown development, historic preservation, parks and recreation, and economic development. Since 2015, the office of Community Enhancement & Engagement has served as the backbone agency of the Grinnell AmeriCorps Partnership.
