Multicultural Alumni Reunion

Multicultural Reunion 2021 - Reimagining our Grinnell narrative

For many of us, our arrival on campus challenged the norm of what it meant to be a Grinnellian. While our time at Grinnell certainly changed our lives, our lives certainly changed Grinnell. 

Multicultural Reunion 2021 presented a connected, inclusive, and engaging series of events for alums from across spectrums of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender expression, and ability to access and explore their own Grinnell narratives while building community within community.

Looking forward to 2023

Multicultural volunteers plan all of the events, programs, and interactive learning opportunities for the biennial Multicultural Reunion. They strive to rebuild and strengthen relationships between the College, alumni of color, LGBTQIA+ alumni, international student alumni, alumni with disabilities, Jewish alumni, and first-generation alumni. They build community by sharing their individual and collective stories with each other, students, faculty, and staff.
