The Macalester Class of 2018, from 41 states and 32 countries, graduated on May 12. Fred Swaniker ’99, founder of the African Leadership University, gave the Commencement address. “Mac showed me that those of us who are privileged enough to get education, to be healthy, and to have lived to this age, should not be solving the small problems,” he said. “We should be solving big problems for the world, and that’s the only way we can justify our privilege.”
