Grinnell-in-New York: Presidential Reception
Grinnell College invites you to a reception at the Manhattan Penthouse.
Join fellow Grinnellians for a discussion about Grinnell's goal to expand the impact of global experiences through the newly launched Institute for Global Engagement. Grinnell College has always been a remarkably international liberal arts college. High rates of participation in study abroad programs, a large and diverse international student population, and outstanding co-curricular offerings contribute to a rich variety of international learning opportunities both on and off campus. The Institute for Global Engagement will provide a vital point for ongoing collaboration among departments, programs, and across the divisions of the College. We invite you to learn about this exciting new development which promises to further elevate the distinctive nature of a Grinnell education.
The program will feature President Raynard S. Kington, M.D., Ph.D. and Dean of the College Michael Latham.
