Students of the world

Our mission focuses on creating a culture of diversity and justice in an interconnected world. We explore cultural narratives and beliefs, build an inclusive community, and create spaces where everyone can grow. Coursework connects ideas across cultures and continents, preparing students to articulate ideas on a global scale.

Community of collaborators

With a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio, Macalester professors and students dig into real-world issues to create dialogues that stem from curiosity and lead to deeper understanding.

Agents of change

Students bring a passion for affecting change and Macalester nurtures that passion. Because even small acts of advocacy can create big opportunities for creating positive change.
