Macalester is not shy when talking about sexual health and respect. We know a student’s sexual health impacts their overall health and well-being. Our educational approach focuses on enhancing relationships of all kinds, increasing access to resources, and opening discussions on our Macalester community value of consent.

Let’s Talk: Where We Come From

Join Sexy for the annual event: Let’s Talk! as we explore all of our exciting, confusing, and wonderful firsts.  No matter where you come from, you’ve experience a first.  The first time you felt your body tingle and didn’t understand. Or when someone told you about “the birds and the bees” and your head exploded.

Friday, November 1, 2019 from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Everyone is welcome. Participation is encouraged.  Food will be provided.
1509 Grand Avenue, St. Paul, MN


Every Fall Semester, the Sexy Educators aim to create a culture of respect by covering the basics of sexual health and consent in the first-year halls: being inclusive of all gender identities and expressions and sexual orientations. We know a large percentage of Mac students are not having sex; but knowledge is important for now, the future, and for helping a friend in need. 

Are you passionate about sexual health and interested in helping educate your peers on this subject. Learn more about the Sexy Educator role and consider becoming one for the upcoming academic year.

Consent @ Mac is a program created by students for students, which articulates expectations about sexual violence prevention in the Macalester community. We encourage all students to understand and commit to their rights and responsibilities in their relationships by signing the Consent Pledge found below.  Look for pledge signing opportunities around campus.
