Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is Macalester’s overall governance body. The board does not actively manage the college on a daily basis but delegates that responsibility to the president. The board’s primary responsibilities are to hire and evaluate the president; set broad policy and goals for the college and evaluate its performance against those goals; actively participate in fund raising and philanthropic support to advance the college’s mission; approve the president’s tenure decisions; and oversee college financial affairs and investments.
