Macalester Alumni of Color Collective

Macalester has commissioned Michael Khuth ’20 to design a public sculpture that represents the varied experiences of people of color at Macalester — from its founding to the present day. We invite our students, alumni, faculty, and staff to collaborate on this sculpture by submitting materials that reflect their BIPOC experience at Macalester. Items submitted will help shape the vision and will be considered for engraving on this sculpture. No contribution is too small.

Please submit your materials here by September 30, 2022 at 11:59 PM CDT.

This alumni-driven project is a joint initiative with Alumni Engagement and the Law Warschaw Gallery. The selection and advisory committees included students, alumni, faculty, and staff.


The Alumni of Color Collective was established to facilitate conversation and networking among the diverse alumni of Macalester.


Reunion 2019 commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Expanded Educational Opportunity (EEO) program! We had a fantastic time in community together and look forward to strengthening our connections.  To learn more about the EEO Program and what campus life was like, we invite you to listen to the Big Questions interview with alumni Barbara Phillips ’71 and Melvin Collins ’75.
