General note

At the June 1979 meeting of the Board of Trustees of Grinnell College, the Board established the Rosenfield Program in Public Affairs, International Relations and Human Rights to honor Joseph F. Rosenfield, who had been a member of the Board since 1941, his mother, the late Mrs. Meyer Rosenfield, who established the Rosenfield Lecture Series at Grinnell in 1934, and his sister, Louise Rosenfield Noun, author, historian and leader in the women's rights movement. The Program began operations in September 1980.

The program sponsors lectures, conference, and symposia; visitors-in-residence; student and faculty internships; and publications.

Joseph Wall was Director of the program from 1980-1985, followed by Wayne Moyer who held that position until 2008. Sarah Purcell has served as Director since 2008.

Robert Grey (1982-1983) and Alan Jones (1987-1988) each served as Acting Director.
