Two students greeting each other on campus.

Make plans to join the second Multicultural Alumni Weekend

A celebration for alumni, their families, and current students.

November 8–10, 2019

Return. Revisit. Reconnect. Rekindle. Reinvest.

Return to campus to celebrate lifelong connections with fellow alumni around the globe, get re-energized with your Grinnell family, and build on the success of the last Multicultural Reunion.

Revisit your spaces, places, and stories, and honor the 50th anniversary of the Conney M. Kimbo Black Cultural Center.

Reconnect with faculty, staff, and students by breaking bread and building community.

Rekindle your love for Grinnell College, share your stories that embrace and celebrate our differences and add to our collective narrative.

Reinvest in the legacy of cultural awareness and respect you helped create, while learning about the diversity and inclusion work the College is doing and how you can continue to contribute.

Multicultural Alumni Weekend is hosted by the student leaders of the Multicultural Leadership Council, the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, Intercultural Affairs, and the Center for Religion, Spirituality, and Social Justice.
