Last year, Faculty Development Committee developed a new strategy for what had been known as “The May Calendar.” Our goal is to provide a predictable, accessible, convenient, useful, engaging, meaningful (shall I keep going?), etc. schedule for faculty and staff development opportunities in early May (after grading and before you take a well-deserved break).
This year, “4 Days in May” will be held May 8-11 and include the “Creating an Inclusive Campus” conference. Based on our goal to highlight faculty and staff development events over just a few days, we have three requests:
1) Mark your calendars and plan on attending.
2) Please refrain from scheduling departmental retreats, etc. during the mornings and early afternoons of May 8-11.
3) If you have any requests for workshops, discussions, or demonstrations, please contact Tim Pippert or any member of the Faculty Development Committee by February 1st.

Study abroad for two weeks in summer 2018:
INTERFAITH ENGAGEMENT IN PALESTINE AND ISRAEL
Courses: RLN 205 or RLN 490. This program also fulfills Augsburg Experience
Join this two-week course to gain a transformational learning experience. You will be immersed in the Israeli and Palestinian contexts, particularly focusing on the three Abrahamic faiths – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Through lectures, readings, and conversations you will deepen your understanding of the history, sacred texts, beliefs and practices of the three Abrahamic faiths. Particular attention will be given to the roots of conflicts in the region and to peacebuilding movements.
We will visit holy sites that are at the center of the sacred stories that shape the beliefs and practices of Jews, Christians, and Muslims. We will hear how faith shapes the daily lives of those living in the land often called “holy.”
Applications are due on January 31, and SCHOLARSHIPS ARE AVAILABLE!
Email email@example.com, or come and talk to the Study Abroad/Away Office for more details! We are located in Oyate Commons, in the lower level of Christensen Center.

The MINNE Holocaust Fellows program annually selects college students to participate in a fully-paid, one-day trip to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. to acquire a more in-depth knowledge of the Holocaust. Fellows tour the permanent exhibits and featured exhibits, as well as meet with a museum representative. Awards come through the MINNE Fund of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, who has chosen Augsburg to be one of the select few universities to participate in the program. Multiple Augsburg students were selected last year for the trip.

URGO’s summer research program is designed to both enhance undergraduate student learning and support faculty research here on campus. Faculty are the driving force behind the research program, and we want it to be as beneficial to you as possible.
Some of you may have already been approached by students who would like to do summer research through URGO. We encourage you to think about how these students might support your own research agenda. While some advanced students might have a project in mind, we have found that students benefit the most from working within a faculty member’s area of expertise.
While summer is the perfect time to push research projects ahead, we know all too well how quickly the time goes. We have research grants for 400, 200, and 100 student research hours that are designed to provide you with the optimal amount of student research support needed for your project. The 100-hour research assistantship, for example, is a particularly good fit if you have needs for data entry, transcription, or literature review.
To learn more about URGO summer research and working with a student, visit the “on-campus research” page on the URGO website: www.augsburg.edu/urgo
Phase 1 of summer research applications are due February 1st, with complete proposals due February 22nd.

URGO SUMMER RESEARCH PROGRAM
The URGO Summer Research Program is an 11-week, on-campus program where students are funded to conduct research with a faculty mentor. Students receive support throughout the research process from their faculty mentor, a Speaker Series, and weekly seminars with fellow researchers. URGO provides full-time summer researchers (400 hours) with a $4,000 stipend and housing discount while half-time researchers (200 hours) receive a $2,000 stipend. The program runs from May 14th – July 27th.
URGO SUMMER RESEARCH ASSISTANT SHIPS
URGO also provides funding for students to work for a professor as a research assistant on an ongoing research project. This is a 100-hour commitment over the course of the summer and comes with a $1,000 stipend. This is an excellent opportunity to try out research for the first time or focus on a specific aspect of a research project.
Phase 1 of the applications are due February 1st, so start talking with your faculty now to learn about what research is going on in your department!
