Step Forward Campaign Results
For the institute for global citizenship

Donors raised $7.5 million for Markim Hall, exceeding the original $7.5 million goal.

Markim Hall opened in Summer 2009.


The enduring values upon which Macalester was founded—internationalism, multiculturalism, and service to community—will be served through the new Institute for Global Citizenship (IGC). The IGC is a groundbreaking campuswide initiative that reaffirms and expands the college’s historic tradition of engagement at the local, national, and international levels, and underscores Macalester’s reputation for academic excellence.
