Interactive Maps of Key Partnerships

Check out our interactive maps to learn more about the ways their respective issue areas relate to the Twin Cities, and how you can get involved. Each module provides multimedia background information on the featured issue, and highlights community organizations that Macalester students work with in those areas. When we begin volunteering or interning with a community partner organization, we are entering into a story that pre-dates us and will continue after we move on. For this reason, the Civic Engagement Center emphasizes ongoing, reciprocal relationships with community partners, and in the interactive maps, we have worked to provide information as well as some local context.
