Welcome! Thanks for visiting our Facilities Services page for updates and new exciting initiatives that are happening in our department.

Comprehensive Campus Plan

One of the goals of Macalester’s strategic plan, Imagine, Macalester, was to create an updated Comprehensive Campus Plan. The plan was completed in May 2023 and serves as a road map to guide investment, phasing, and development of potential projects in alignment with Macalester’s strategic goals.

Furthering our efforts to our Zero Waste goals

Despite our recent national recognition for diverting 78% of Macalester’s waste from the landfill, we did not met our Zero Waste by 2020 goal of 90% diversion. For more information see article in Macalester news. Our next steps will involve the entire MAC community’s commitment and action. Find out what you will be doing to help further this effort at Furthering our Zero Waste Goals!

Increasing our energy efficiency

During the pandemic and with fewer people being on campus, we realized that there were opportunities to reduce our energy usage to be more mindful of our consumption. As a result of this knowledge Facilities Services has made some adjustments to reduce our impact. To learn more about specific changes visit Space Comfort Guidelines and Facts.
