Short-term study abroad: Diversity and Inequality in Global Professional Practice

submitted by koh@augsburg.edu

Diversity and Inequality in Global Professional Practice
April 30 – May 13, 2018

Program Description: This program explores diversity and social inequality as a prerequisite to professional social work practice in a global context – specifically, in the context of Southeast Asia and Hmong culture. A critical dimension of professional practice is competence in work with diverse populations. Learning in this course is meant to complement learning in other social work supporting and foundation courses.

A large part of student learning in this course occurs through self-exploration, since knowledge of self is critical to professional social work practice. In pre travel meetings, students use readings, experiential exercises, dialogue, and assignments to deepen awareness of themselves as members of social groups. Students also learn about others’ social identities through course assignments, exercises and dialogue – completed both prior to and following travel to Thailand and Laos. Finally, the course provides an opportunity to improve communication with others through regular dialogue practice.

The deadline to apply is January 31, 2018 (please link below). For additional information, please email Professor Bibiana Koh (koh@augsburg.edu).

Bone Marrow Registry Drive – TODAY

submitted by detloff@augsburg.edu

In partnership with Delete Blood Cancer and the There Goes my Hero Foundation Augsburg will be holding a bone marrow registry drive in the Christensen Center on Wednesday November 8th from 2:00pm-4:00pm. It only takes five minutes of your time. A simple cheek swab registers you to become a donor in which time you could save a life. There is a huge need for donors. Six out of ten patients do not have a match so they will not receive the lifesaving transplant they need. You have the power to heal! Matches are very difficult to find because patients need donors who are a genetic match. If you are a match for a patient in need the national registry will contact you and ask if you would be willing to either through a blood donation or a marrow donation. Your participation in this drive could save a life.

Be a part of one of the biggest celebrations at Augsburg! Each December, Augsburg students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends celebrate Advent at Central Lutheran Church in downtown Minneapolis with word and song. Students can join the Liturgical Team and carry bells, candle, banner or torch as part of the Gospel Processional (if not already in the choir or orchestra).

Advent Vespers is the first Friday and Saturday in December, with services on Friday at 5pm and 8pm, and Saturday at 2pm and 5pm. Practices are on Tuesday at 4:30 pm and Thursday at 6:45 pm. Transportation for the liturgical team is provided between Augsburg campus and Central Lutheran Church, as well as some meals and snacks. Many past participants have commented on how meaningful their participation in Advent Vespers is – that they feel a true sense of the Auggie spirit.

Be a part of this fun and moving experience! For more information, stop by Campus Ministries in Foss 104 or contact Janice Dames at dames@augsburg.edu.
