Mission and Values


We are educators who foster the holistic development of students on their journey of self-awareness, leadership, and service in the world. 


Equity and Inclusion. We strive to create inclusive communities in which students can learn and grow. We respect the dynamic traditions and identities of all community members and seek to create a sense of belonging on our campus. 

Well-being. We promote and encourage well-being of the whole student through the development of body, mind, and spirit and create an empowered, resilient, and thriving community.

Integrative Learning Experiences. We recognize that students learn in connected, integrated ways. We help students create meaning and synthesize learning by illuminating the intersections among experiences in and out of the classroom and for life beyond Macalester.

Collaborative Partnerships. We forge intentional partnerships to deepen student learning and engagement within and beyond the campus community.
