IGCSC 2014-2015

Summer 2015 Live It Fund APPLICATION  | Due Sunday, March 1, 11:59PM
Letters from community partners and mentors due Friday, March 6, 11:59PM

The Institute for Global Citizenship Student Council (IGCSC) is the student voice of the Institute for Global Citizenship. Students representing all sectors of campus life--from athletics to the arts, from environmental issues to multicultural life--come together to actively shape the perception of global citizenship on Macalester's campus.

The IGCSC organizes these programs:

  • Live It Fund, a program that distributes $35,000 in grants annually to student projects that live out their personal definitions of global citizenship. In groups or individually, students design an independent project, carry it out over J-Term or the summer, and then come back to the Macalester community to share what they have done. Summer 2015 application due March 1, 2015 at 11:59pm.
  • Ethics in the Professions, an opportunity for students to hear from local leaders who are pursuing innovative and ethical work in the Twin Cities. A panel addresses the ethical issues underlying a profession ranging from hospital work to teaching, and students are encouraged to ask questions that will help shape their own understanding of ethics in their potential future careers. Ethics in the Professions is produced in collaboration with the Lilly Project.

In addition to its regular programs, IGCSC seeks to support the work of the Institute for Global Citizenship by assisting with events such as the International Roundtable and promoting work relating to global citizenship across campus.
