Division of Student Affairs

Dear Students,

Welcome to Macalester’s Division of Student Affairs! Whether you live in a residence hall, exercise in the Leonard Center, meet a future employer through Career Exploration, relax in the Campus Center, engage with one of over 100 student organizations, or find support in the Hamre Center, with Disability Services, or in International Student Programs, Student Affairs spans the student experience. Our team is composed of diverse and dedicated educators who foster holistic development, meaningful connections, and community engagement to advance your self-exploration, leadership, and service in the world. This means that our team provides opportunities that prioritize:

  • Well-being and safety
  • Equity and inclusion
  • Integrative learning experiences
  • Collaborative partnerships
  • Sense of belonging for yourself and others

While each Student Affairs department has its own learning outcomes within these domains, our overall role on campus is to support you in growing, leading, and fostering a love of Macalester. As you develop in these three areas, you also strengthen who we are as a community, and for that I am grateful. Macalester is a vibrant and dynamic place, where I hope you will find caring, inspiration, and belonging. On behalf of over 100 talented Student Affairs staff members, I welcome you to our campus. I am honored to be a part of your student experience at Macalester.

Go Scots!
