CEC provides multi-faceted ways for students to engage with the larger community

Students in the Outdoor Environmental Education Course teach elementary school students at the Ordway Field Station. Each year, about 60 academic courses include a community-based engagement component, just one of the ways students can become involved during their time at Mac through the Civic Engagement Center.

The Kofi Annan Institute for Global Citizenship fosters global citizenship by advancing scholarship, reflection, and ethical action in our local, national, and international communities.

A unique feature of Macalester College, the Kofi Annan Institute for Global Citizenship (Annan IGC) houses diverse programs that connect rigorous academics with hands-on experience and exploration outside the classroom. From the annual International Roundtable to study away, to civic engagement, our programs unite students, faculty, and community partners toward the common purpose of advancing scholarship, reflection, and ethical action.
