Board of Trustees

When Iowa College (1846) merged with Grinnell University (1856) in 1859, the merged college was continued at Grinnell under the charter of the older institution. The name of the corporation continued to be The Trustees of Iowa College, even though the institution has been known as Grinnell College since 1909. As of June 17, 1990, the corporate name was changed to conform with its public identity, and hence the institution is now officially Grinnell College.
