Grinnell College is a private, coed, residential liberal arts and sciences college located in Grinnell, Iowa and it was founded in 1846, when a group of New England Congregationalists established the Trustees of Iowa College. Eleven Congregational ministers who were trained at Andover Theological Seminary in Massachusetts set out to proselytize on the frontier in 1843. Each man pledged to gather a church and together the group or band would seek to establish a college. In 1846, they collectively established Iowa College in Davenport. A few months later, Iowa joined the Union. The first 25 years of Grinnell's history saw a change in name and location. Iowa College moved farther west from Davenport, Iowa, to the town of Grinnell and unofficially adopted the name of its benefactor: an abolitionist minister, Josiah Bushnell Grinnell. The name of the corporation "The Trustees of Iowa College" remained, but in 1909 the name "Grinnell College" was adopted by the trustees for the institution. In its 2016 edition of "America's Best Colleges", U.S. News & World Report ranked Grinnell tied for 19th among all liberal arts colleges in the United States, and tied for highest economic diversity as measured by low-income students receiving federal Pell Grants.
