Augsburg Name Change: Monument Signs, Top of Mortenson

submitted by weisss@augsburg.edu

In fewer than 60 days, we officially will be Augsburg University.

Last week, department heads received email information specific to their department about the University Name Change. Please be sure to undertake this work so that our campus is transformed by September 1. Some of the major steps that department heads need to implement on behalf of the community include blocking time on calendars between August 28 through September 1 to implement the changes for which your department is responsible and reviewing your department’s University Name Change Checklist and download the University Name Change Master Task Tracker to track your implemented name changes

Two University Name Change Help Sessions remain and are a chance to get a project update and to ask any questions about your Department Name Change Checklist, or for any other name-change related queries. Sessions are:

August 2, 2017 at 1 p.m.—OGC 100
August 23, 2017 at 1 p.m.—OGC 100

Take a look at what’s new and underway on the University Name Change website under the “Updates.”
