We’re getting so close to September 1 when we officially will be known as “Augsburg University!” With that in mind, now is the time to block time on your calendar to update your department’s Inside Augsburg pages, Engage Blogs, and department social media accounts.
To help with the transition of your department’s social media accounts, MarComm staff has developed some branded profile and cover photos designed for use on Facebook and Twitter, but also appropriate for other social media platforms, too.
We’re asking that official academic and staff departments, and chartered student organizations, select from among these profile and cover photos to launch your official social media accounts as Augsburg University. We hope to kick off the new academic year with a unified show of force around our branded images. Doing so will reinforce to our public audiences — prospective students and their families, alumni, corporate and foundation partners, and lawmakers — that we are a cohesive, unified community.
MarComm staff already converted top-tier, official social media accounts held by Augsburg. This work was done in advance of other departments to understand any kinks in the changes and so that if your department needs assistance, we are more readily available to help you.
Full details on on the Augsburg University Name Change blog.

If you are planning on having student employees during the academic year, please be sure to review the information below regarding student positions.
Steps to follow when hiring a student worker:
1) Students returning into a position they held previously (‘returning students’) will only need a Student Employment Hire Form submitted through Hirezon/Interview Exchange.
2) Looking for a student worker to hire? Any new position will need to be posted through Human Resources to the internal student jobs board. Student Requisitions can be submitted though Hirezon/Interview Exchange. Once it’s submitted, we will post the position online. Hiring managers will be able to view applications in real time through the system.
3) When you’ve selected a student to hire, complete the Student Employment Hire Form through Hirezon/Interview Exchange. Students who have never worked on campus before (‘new student employees’) will need to fill out additional new hire paperwork, including a background check, before they are authorized to work.
4) Do not start a student unless they have completed HR paperwork and the background check. New student employees will be sent a background check request and paperwork once the Student Employment Hire Form is submitted. If you have any questions about whether a student is authorized to work, please contact Human Resources.
Instructions for navigating Hirezon/Interview Exchange can be found at this link: http://web.augsburg.edu/hr/Student/Supervisor_Recruiting_Process.pdf.
As in previous years, international students and students who are eligible for federal or state work study will be given hiring priority through October. This is a part of the student’s financial aid package, therefore, we want to ensure each student awarded work study funds is able to work an on-campus position. Beginning November 1, students not awarded work study may be eligible for on-campus employment.
