Forms and Applications Student Statistics Form Request Info

Macalester students, faculty and staff are actively involved in public scholarship and civic learning locally, nationally and internationally.

The "esprit de corps" of the campus is engagement -- of ideas and action towards a more just and responsible world. More than 90 percent of our students participate in some form of community-based work before they graduate. We work in reciprocal partnership with community organizations in the Twin Cities to provide learning experiences that will also enrich the community.

Voting made easy!
