International Education at Augsburg: Organizational Updates

submitted by mulvihil@augsburg.edu

I am pleased to announce several changes designed to better align and integrate international education operations at Augsburg. All are effective immediately.

International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS)
ISSS reporting lines will shift from Student Affairs to Academic Affairs, permitting closer collaboration in global exchange programs between ISSS and the Center for Global Education & Experience (CGEE). Jim Trelstad-Porter, the Director of ISSS, will report to the Assistant Provost of Global Education & Experience. Angela Bonfiglio, the ISSS International Student Advisor, will move to a year-round position and continue reporting to the Director of ISSS. Her responsibilities will be split between her role as international student advisor and a new role recruiting non-Augsburg students for CGEE’s semester programs.

Center for Global Education & Experience (CGEE)
In addition to existing responsibilities for advising Augsburg students who wish to study abroad, Maren Stoddard Mack will take over coordination of off-campus undergraduate programs led by Augsburg faculty (a.k.a. faculty-led programs). Peggy Johnson will continue to coordinate graduate and nursing faculty-led programs.

As mentioned above, Angela Bonfiglio will begin dedicating half her time to recruiting semester-long CGEE students from other colleges and universities. Non-Augsburg students bring additional diversity and dynamism to CGEE programs, and they produce additional revenue.

Norway Hub
The Norway Hub will now be more intentionally linked to Augsburg’s broader international education efforts, with the reporting line for Bettine Hermanson, the hub’s Managing Director, shifting to the Assistant Provost of Global Education & Experience.

-Pat Mulvihill

Congratulations to two Fall Gilman Scholarship Winners

submitted by dvorak@augsburg.edu

Augsburg students Kitana Holland and Erika Idrovo-Cuesta awarded U.S. Department of State’s Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad!

The U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that Kitana Holland and Erika Idrovo-Cuesta from Augsburg University are selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study or intern abroad this fall 2018. Both students are seniors; Kitana is majoring in Sociology, while Erika is majoring in Political Science/Public Policy. They will both be studying this fall on CGEE’s own semester program in Namibia: Nation Building, Globalization and Decolonizing the Mind.

Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad or internship program. The Gilman scholarship supports American undergraduate students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad and, since 2001, has enabled more than 24,000 outstanding Americans of diverse backgrounds to engage in a meaningful educational experience abroad. The program has successfully broadened U.S. participation in study abroad, while emphasizing countries and regions where fewer Americans traditionally study. The Gilman Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and is supported in its implementation by the Institute of International Education (IIE).

Since 2008, fifty four Augsburg students have received Gilman scholarships, totaling $214,000.

ISSS reporting lines will shift from Student Affairs to Academic Affairs, permitting closer collaboration in global exchange programs between ISSS and the Center for Global Education & Experience (CGEE). Jim Trelstad-Porter, the Director of ISSS, will report to the Assistant Provost of Global Education & Experience.

Angela Bonfiglio, the ISSS International Student Advisor, will move to a year-round position and go on reporting to the Director of ISSS. Her responsibilities will be split into two parts. She will continue overseeing international students’ campus orientation, providing academic advising and leading the International Student Organization (ISO). The other half of her job will be to recruit non-Augsburg students for CGEE’s semester programs.

Center for Global Education & Experience (CGEE)
In addition to existing responsibilities for advising Augsburg students who wish to study abroad, Maren Stoddard Mack will take over coordination of off-campus undergraduate programs led by Augsburg faculty (a.k.a. faculty-led programs). Peggy Johnson will continue to coordinate graduate and nursing faculty-led programs.

As mentioned above, Angela Bonfiglio will begin dedicating half her time to recruiting semester-long CGEE students from other colleges and universities. Non-Augsburg students bring additional diversity and dynamism to CGEE programs, and they produce additional revenue.

Norway Hub
The Norway Hub will now be more intentionally linked to Augsburg’s broader international education efforts, with the reporting line for Bettine Hermanson, the hub’s Managing Director, shifting to the Assistant Provost of Global Education & Experience.

Lapakko receives another Think-Off award

submitted by chamberk@augsburg.edu

Congratulations to Prof. David Lapakko (Communication Studies, Film, and New Media) who has once again been recognized by the Great American Think-Off, a philosophy competition sponsored by the New York Mills, MN Cultural Center. This year, Lapakko’s essay was chosen in the top 8 out of hundreds submitted from around the nation; he will receive an honorable mention award at the Think-Off debates being held this coming Saturday night in New York Mills. Lapakko is one of two honorees from Minnesota; the others hail from Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Illinois. In 2013, Prof. Lapakko was a bronze medal winner at this event and in 2015 he was the overall champion; he also received honorable mention awards in 2016 and 2017. This year’s question is, “Which plays a larger role in shaping one’s life: Success or Failure?”

Community Garden Updates

submitted by greena@augsburg.edu

Yes, we know the garden still doesn’t look much like a garden, but it’s on it’s way!

Last week we got “rock column” drains in the raised beds to prepare for more rain and approved a new soil mix for the top 10 inches of all the gardens that will help our plants flourish.

This week’s happenings:

-Student communal garden plots being creatively planned and planted on the south edge
-Prairie plantings and apple trees installed on the west edge
-New soil added to all beds
-Gardeners finally planting beginning Wednesday!!

Stay tuned for updates on special events, and feel free to come out and wander through the garden, thank all the landscaping crew for their overtime work these last couple weeks, and meet some gardeners!

If you have extra rhubarb, raspberries, strawberries, herbs, or vegetable starts that need a new home, you can drop them off on top of one of the benches in the garden and we will find a good spot for them.
