Macalester Alumni of Color Collective

Macalester is commissioning a public artwork to acknowledge and commemorate the past, present, and future of students and alumni of color. Michael Khuth ’20 was selected to design this new art sculpture that is planned to be unveiled some time later in 2023. This alumni-driven project is a joint initiative with Alumni Engagement and the Law Warschaw Gallery. The selection and advisory committees included alumni, faculty, staff, and students.

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.


Facing Forward is a ‘zine created by Ariel Estrella ’15 with words of encouragement, love, and reflection from alumni of color to graduating seniors of color.

Physical copies are gifted to seniors as part of the Rites of Passage graduation ceremonies each year. View previous volumes below.
