Muneer Karcher-Ramos (BA '08, political science and sociology) is director of the Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood. His liberal arts education led him to think about what the greater good is and what it takes to create it. Now he uses education and family stability as tools to end multigenerational poverty, to bring in people who are typically left out of the conversation, so they can be part of it.
In the College of Liberal Arts, we are creating tomorrow’s thought leaders. As we near our 150th anniversary in 2018-19, we’re celebrating this milestone by building a library of stories highlighting our alumni—confident, active citizens poised to take risks, confront challenges, and thrive in an ever-changing world.
