We realize that we need to make decisions without supervision, and we must hold ourselves accountable when things go wrong. Seeing my fellow Grinnellians take on responsibilities despite many challenges, I have come to fully understand what we are capable of doing and that we can initiate change not only on our campus, but also in our world as a whole.
Dedicate yourself and your work to something bigger.
Your drive pushes you to conquer obstacles and make intellectual discoveries. Your thoughtful determination resolves conflicts and brings people together. It’s what Grinnellians do. That’s why here, you’ll find the freedom to explore issues of purpose, responsibility, and justice, in a safe and supportive environment. And after graduation, you’ll find out how far your dedication will take you.
