From the Co-Chairs of the Presidential Search Committee

Dear Macalester Community,

On behalf of the Presidential Search Committee, we write to thank all of you who took time to participate in our community survey earlier this month. The response was impressive and thoughtful, reflected a range of perspectives and key themes, and demonstrated the deep passion the community has for Macalester’s future. 

Coupled with what we learned during our campus listening sessions in April, the insights shared will help us ground the search in our community’s perspectives and values. Incorporating that feedback, we’ve developed a strong leadership profile that we will use to attract a broad and diverse pool of candidates. Our search firm, Spencer Stuart, and the search committee will use it in conversations with prospective candidates. 

We continue to welcome your feedback and candidate nominations throughout the search. Please share them anytime at, and we look forward to updating you on our progress.

We are excited by the potential to attract a visionary and talented leader for this amazing institution, and we appreciate your involvement in shaping the future of Macalester.
