Grinnell students graduate with distinctive experiences, knowledge of the world, and intercultural skills that enable them to pursue careers around the world, engage in debate over international issues, and make vital contributions as global citizens. Our Global Grinnell focus means that we build opportunities that enable students to deepen their understanding of the world through a global curriculum and opportunities such as internationally-focused students and faculty research, course-embedded travel programs, and intensive language learning. We are committed to strong off-campus study offerings as well as promoting an academic environment that is welcoming to our large, diverse international presence on campus.
