Make an impact on your community - or the world.
You hold high ambitions for your studies, your career, and your life. But you also possess high hopes for the world. And no matter your course of study, or what profession you choose to pursue, you want your efforts to make life better for others.
Grinnellians share your passion for social justice. Since the College’s founding on the 19th-century Iowa frontier, we’ve built social justice into everything we do. From classes to internships to co-curricular programs, we foster an ethos of conscious inclusion, along with honest reflection on our own roles and motives in serving others. To us, social justice isn’t something we do for others, but with them.
At Grinnell, we know it’s not always simple to determine what’s right — but it’s our shared responsibility to find out, and then act on it.
