Imagine, Macalester Strategic Plan

Approved by the Macalester Board of Trustees on October 7, 2022.

Our broad and inclusive strategic planning process led our community to the Imagine, Macalester plan that was unanimously approved by the Board of Trustees in October 2022. The plan amplifies what makes us distinctive: the powerful combination of a signature liberal arts curriculum, grounded in a residential campus experience, focused on our unique location in the vibrant Twin Cities, with an emphasis on citizenship within the wider world. The plan organizes initiatives into three categories–Curriculum, Culture, and Campus–and uses four foundational imperatives–Academic Distinction, Financial Sustainability, Social Responsibility, and Community Well-Being–to animate our work and measure its success.
