LMAP Awarded Presidents’ Community Partner Award!

Presidents’ Community Partner Award is given to a community-based organization that has enhanced the quality of life in the community in meaningful and measurable ways and has engaged in the development of sustained, reciprocal partnerships with the college or university, thus enriching educational as well as community outcomes. This year the award went to Linwood Monroe Arts Plus (LMAP) – a St. Paul Public School with Principal Bryan Bass and Assistant Principal Al Levin. Macalester’s partnership with Linwood Monroe Arts Plus School has grown to involve almost 400 Macalester students over the past 19 years.  Macalester students work as tutors, classroom assistants, and mentors at this arts-based, prek-8 school. This multifaceted partnership (including Bonner students, student employees and courses) also includes annual Macalester College campus visits for LMAP students.
