The Graceland University Board of Trustees approved a new major and two new minors over the weekend. These new programs strongly align with the university’s mission and values, and support Graceland’s continued effort to expand diversity and inclusion efforts. Beginning Fall 2020, Graceland Lamoni-campus students may choose to major in social change, for which half the credits are attainable through Graceland’s essential education theme of equality and peace. Additionally, two new minors will be available to Lamoni-campus students beginning Fall 2020: 1) critical race and ethnic studies, 2) women’s, gender and sexuality studies.
At this time, the Lamoni and Independence campuses are closed to public access.
Alumnus Roger Powell recently returned to Graceland as the director of the writing center, completing a full circle that started when he began to find his way as an undergraduate student several years ago. Powell graduated from Graceland in 2012, but the direction he ultimately chose in his educational path had been a long time coming.
