The Center for International Studies fosters learning and inquiry through global connections and engagement. Concretely, the Center supports course-related travel for students and faculty, visits by prominent international scholars and artists, faculty development travel experiences across the globe, global research and service opportunities that emphasize an international perspective, and the promotion of internationalization across the curriculum. The Center oversees the College's partnerships with other educational institutions across the globe such as Grinnell's 20-year partnership with Nanjing University in China, which allows Chinese scholars to come to Grinnell, and Grinnell students and faculty to teach in China. The Center also sponsors numerous on-campus events that address international issues or feature international performers. In conjunction with the Office of Off-Campus Study, the center works to give Grinnell students many opportunities for study, research, internships, and volunteer work in Asia, Australia, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
