Meeting the Challenge
In what will forever be a defining moment in each of our lives, Grinnellians rose to meet unprecedented challenges and changes together. It is now time to shift our focus to what is next.
Grinnell’s leadership, faculty, and staff are committed to providing the very best Grinnell educational opportunities possible for our students. Decisions about the coming academic year will require the creativity, compassion, and consideration for community that are the hallmarks of Grinnell College.
Many of the College's functions remain remote, including teaching and learning and most administrative work. We are assessing our community health conditions on an ongoing basis to determine how we can continue fulfilling our mission as safely as possible. Our campus activity level system provides overall guidance for life and work at Grinnell based on our community health conditions.
