Founded in 1846, Grinnell College is a small private liberal arts college in Iowa where innovative intellectual discourse is central to learning. Guided by a commitment to academic rigor and a “commitment to social justice,” the school stresses self-governance (“Self-Gov is Love”) and the “very supportive” student body has the power to make change on campus. “Grinnell operates on self-governance which means the students are held accountable for their actions by their fellow students rather than being cited by RAs or school officials,” says a student.
Learning at Grinnell “can be characterized as entering into a dialogue with professors and classmates.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
