Mission Statement


This fall, Employment Services will partner with other departments and community members to bring you the Campus Connections series.  Our goal with this series is to create space for our community members to learn, educate, and reconnect with each other in new ways.  Twice a month throughout the semester, we’ll facilitate online webinars, conversations, and gatherings.  The strength of our community is one of Macalester’s biggest assets, and just because we’re apart doesn’t mean that has weakened.  This is one way we are fostering connections and bringing people together in our community.
