  • Promoting excellence and innovation in teaching and advising
  • Seeking ways to integrate scholarship and teaching to deepen and enrich the education of students while promoting a more ‘seamless’ and satisfying professional life for faculty
  • Encouraging and facilitating public scholarship and civic learning as a means of making Macalester a truly ‘engaged campus’
  • Sponsoring special projects that encourage the rediscovery, redefinition, and reinvigoration of the College’s liberal arts mission
