Macalester's internationalism seeks, in the context of liberal education and the growing transnationalization of human life, to bring students and faculty together in the eternal quest for self-knowledge. This entails providing numerous opportunities for reflection on self and the development of knowledge about specific cultures, regions, nations, ecologies, discourses, and languages in a time of unprecedented globalization. Internationalism at Macalester thus aspires to produce students confident in who they are, cognizant of the importance of creative intelligence, skillful in analyzing and understanding complex problems, and willing to assume leadership in a multi-civilizational yet transnationalizing world.
