The mission of the Community Education Cooperative is to coordinate community education in the Grinnell community. The cooperative is comprised of, but not limited to, representatives of Grinnell College, Grinnell Regional Medical Center, Grinnell Newburg Community Schools, Iowa Valley Community College, Mayflower Community, Grinnell Area Art Council, and Drake Community Library. These principals assist each other in their respective community education endeavors and combine their resources to present educational opportunities not otherwise available to the community.
The Community Education Cooperative had their first meeting September 6, 2007. The organizations represented were Grinnell College, Grinnell Regional Medical Center, and Mayflower Community.
These folks put the Bucket Courses into action! If you happen to see them around town or at one of the presentations, take a moment to thank them for their time and hard work.
