Intercultural Conflict Styles 3/22

submitted by aleshirn@augsburg.edu

When: Thu, March 22, 8:20am – 11:20am
Where: Marshall Room

This workshop makes use of the Intercultural Conflict Style (ICS) Inventory, which describes an individual’s preferred approach or style for resolving conflict by reflecting the individual’s culturally learned patterns for dealing with disagreements and expressing emotions. This workshop will not only teach individuals about their own preferred approach and style, but it will also teach individuals about the preferred approaches and styles of others. Finally, this workshop will give participants tangible skills that can be used when navigating conflicts across cultural differences. The increased understanding of intercultural conflict styles and tangible skills participants will receive from this workshop can enhance their overall intercultural competence in resolving disagreements across cultures in addition to help them to create more inclusive campus spaces. For more information about this workshop, contact Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives Staff at diversity@augsburg.edu.

Juniors and Seniors: Live Abroad for a Year after College

submitted by obrienk@augsburg.edu

Fulbright Info Sessions:
Wednesday, April 4th @ 10:40am in OGC 112
Thursday, April 5th @ 5pm in Riverside Room (2nd floor of Christensen Center)
Food will be provided.

The Fulbright Student Program fully funds students to study, research, or serve as an English teaching assistant abroad for a year (no teaching experience required!). During their year abroad, Fulbrighters meet, work, live with and learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing participants to gain an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and the way they think.

Past Augsburg students have been selected for Fulbright Awards to countries such as Czech Republic, South Korea, Ecuador, Malaysia, Peru, Turkey, Taiwan, and Germany (and more!), and 7 of this year’s applicants have been named semi-finalists. Augsburg’s focus on cross-cultural engagement and community involvement makes Auggies particularly strong candidates who are well-prepared to make the most of a Fulbright experience.

Join URGO for one of our Fulbright information sessions to learn more about the program and hear from past applicants. If you cannot make it to one of the sessions, please contact urgo@augsburg.edu or stop by Hagfors 101 to set up an appointment for April or May. The application opens in early April.

The competition is open to juniors, seniors, graduate students, and alumni in all fields, and a GPA of 3.4+ is considered competitive.

Paid Psychology Study Participants Needed

submitted by naglek@augsburg.edu

I, Alexis Nagle, am an undergraduate student conducting URGO-funded research through the Augsburg University Psychology Department, under the mentorship of Dr. Stacy Freiheit. The study I am conducting focuses on the impact of sexual assault disclosure on the friends of sexual assault survivors among college students.

You are being invited to participate in this study because of your enrollment as an undergraduate student at Augsburg University. If you elect to participate in this study, you will be asked to respond to a 15-20 minute confidential & anonymous questionnaire about attitudes & experiences surrounding sexual assault. Your participation in this study will yield either course credit for PSY105 & PSY215 or $5 compensation.

This survey deals with sensitive topics, such as sexual assault & violence. If you choose to participate in this study, you have the right to withdraw or skip any questions at any time without affecting affect your current or future relations with Augsburg University or the researcher. The indirect benefits are that the results of this study may allow for a better understanding of the effects of sexual assault. A direct benefit is that you will receive course credit or compensation for completing this survey.

The results of this study will be disseminated in a final paper & presented to the faculty in the Psychology department at Augsburg University. The results also may be published in a professional journal or presented at local, regional, national, or international conferences via a poster or oral presentation. In any publication or conference presentation, I will not include any information that will make it possible to identify participants. All data will be stored on a password-protected computer and only my advisor & I will have access to it.

If you are interested in participating in this study, you may contact me, Alexis Nagle, at naglek@augsburg.edu to arrange for a day and time.
