Student Government

The Macalester College Student Government (MCSG) is the representative government on campus. MCSG is the organization to join if students wish to participate directly in campus policies and events. In an environment which seeks to maximize student leadership, MCSG’s elected student representatives govern the budgeting of chartered student groups and act as a liaison between students and the administration.

There are over 90 MCSG-chartered organizations on campus and if students don’t see an organization that piques their interest they are welcome to work with the Campus Programs staff who will help to develop an organizational charter and assist in presenting it to the legislative body of Macalester College Student Government.
