Crowd and stage at TEDxGrinnell

Donald and Winifred Wilson Center for Innovation & Leadership

Grinnell has long been an incubator for leaders and innovators by educating students in the liberal arts through free inquiry and the open exchange of ideas. With a strong tradition of self-governance, a commitment to diversity, a celebration of social innovation, and the routine practice of critical thinking and creativity, Grinnellians embody much of what it means to be a leader and innovator.

The Wilson Center works to further catalyze leadership and innovation among our students through complementary coursework, personal experiences, and event programming that inspires them and prepares them to leverage their liberal arts education into success as leaders and innovators.
