Alumni Board working groups were established within the last two years to transition the board from an advisory board to a working board. The Board wanted to take on tasks that made a necessary, tangible impact on the Macalester strategic direction and fostered alumni engagement. Each group is defining specific goals with plans of action to implement in 2018-2019. All members of the board participate in one of the following working groups.


Engage the significant number of Macalester alumni who were varsity athletes with both the College, the Athletics Department, current student-athletes and other athletic alumni. Learn more about Athletics at Mac.


Engage alumni in their varied identities including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, gender, mental ability, physical ability, religion, sexuality, and nationality. Our work will build and sustain meaningful connections across class years among our alumni community while also connecting with all students, faculty, staff, and administrators at the College.

Build genuine alumni ownership in the Macalester community by developing relevant ways for alumni to engage throughout their life. Learn more about Career Exploration at Mac.
