Grinnell College launches Experiential College for alumni

The Grinnell Office of Development & Alumni Relations invites alumni to share their talent and knowledge this summer by teaching or attending an online workshop in the new Experiential College (ExCo) pilot program.

Alumni can apply to teach a one-time, 60- to 90-minute virtual workshop for their fellow Grinnellians. Instructors will receive a development fee of $250 for prepping and teaching their workshop.

The workshops will be free to attend and open to all alumni and current Grinnell students. Information about the workshops topics and how to sign up will be in the June 18 edition of The Grinnellian.

“Grinnellians have an amazing array of talents and enjoy learning about new things,” says Jessica Stewart, senior associate director of alumni and donor relations. “The ExCo pilot is meant to provide a platform for the sharing and learning of those skills and knowledge in a causal, low-pressure setting.”

Alumni ExCo workshops will be taught online between July 1 and Aug. 21. Subjects can focus on wide range of knowledge-based disciplines from bread-baking to yoga. The College is limited to 10 courses for the pilot, but applications not chosen could be considered for future rounds of workshops.

Ready to apply? Please complete the application by Wednesday, June 3.
