About the Office of Off-Campus Study

The Office of Off-Campus Study manages semester and year-long study outside of Grinnell by:

  • coordinating the advising that informs a student’s plans,
  • overseeing the internal approval of those plans,
  • monitoring communications with program providers from pre-departure through return, and
  • utilizing student experiences to inform future students’ opportunities.
  • monitoring developments with our providers, trends in the field of education abroad, and global events.
  • advocating on behalf of our students’ well-being and coordinating responses with campus offices and families.
  • connecting Grinnell faculty with and leveraging the global network that we maintain through the students we send out into the world and professional contacts we develop. 
  • managing Grinnell’s own semester-long program, Grinnell-in-London.
