About GTMDs

The Division of Student Affairs fosters holistic development, meaningful connections, and community engagement to advance high-impact practices for experiential learning, self-exploration, leadership, and service in the world. To do this, we provide opportunities that prioritize well-being and safety, equity and inclusion, integrative learning experiences, collaborative partnerships, and a sense of belonging. Choose Student Affairs when you make your gift or choose to support a specific program by typing the program name in the "Select a Designation" box.

International Student Programs: International Student Programs (ISP) serves the educational, regulatory, and personal development needs of Macalester’s international students through helping them integrate, participate, and apply their learning to their own lives and cultural contexts. Programs include a pre-orientation, a peer mentorship program, host family connections, weekly talk and tea events, tax preparation help, and graduation celebration, among others.

Student Leadership and Engagement: The Center for Student Leadership and Engagement creates intentional learning opportunities for students to engage in campus life, develop leadership skills, and build inclusive communities throughout their Macalester experience. CSLE supports the Macalester College Student Government and all student organizations, as well as programs like New Student Orientation and Leadership Macalester.

In addition to supporting students with disabilities. we work collaboratively across campus to foster a culture of inclusion and universal design through educational programming, advocacy and awareness building serving as resource for the entire Macalester Community.

Student Support and Crisis Intervention: Student Support and Crisis intervention comes in a wide variety of formats. Whether it is students in need of support or resources related to mental health, medical situations, family life, food insecurity, or academics and finances, the Dean of Students Office is the central connecting point to for these resources to help the student succeed.

Health and Wellness: The Hamre Center for Health & Wellness is dedicated to supporting, educating, and empowering our diverse student body in developmentally-appropriate and culturally-responsive ways in all aspects of their health and well-being. We approach our spectrum of promotion, prevention, direct services, and advocacy work through a public health lens, prioritizing social justice, health equity, and transparency.

Residential Life: Residential Life at Macalester College utilizes a student-focused, learning-centered approach to foster resident development, authentic relationships, and inclusive living-communities. We do this through our implementation of LIFE@MAC, community standards, and housing services.

Open Pantry: The Macalester Open Pantry exists to ensure all students have access to healthy food in a timely manner. We believe in the following principles that help center our work in supporting students: Food is a basic right for all individuals. Everyone deserves access to healthy food, where they live, that they can get to. Everyone deserves access to foods that are familiar to them and fit their cultural preferences, abilities, and dietary needs. Working collaboratively with other campuses, community organizations, and across our campus drives our mutual success. Operating in a way that supports equity, sustainability, and fairness to all builds a stronger campus community.

In 2024, Macalester students are competing in five different forensics team events: mock trial, ethics bowl, policy debate, moot court and ModelUN. Funds provide regional and national travel competition opportunities for 80+ students in the program.
