Public Safety and Facilities Announcements

A Notice of Theft on June 13th

submitted by westa@augsburg.edu

The department of Public Safety would like to notify you of a theft occurrence that happened on campus. In the Hagfors Center on Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 a laptop was stolen. The theft was reported to Public Safety as happening at approximately 2:45pm. The door to the space was reported as being propped open around the time of the theft.

Public Safety would like to remind you of some awareness tips to help prevent theft occurrences:

-Never leave personal items unattended. Theft occurrences can often happen in under 5 minutes so remember to always take your things with you.
-Do not prop doors open to ensure only the people who have access to that space can gain entry.
-Always be aware of your surroundings and report suspicious activity to Public Safety.

If you have concerns or need to report something, call Public Safety anytime at 612-330-1717.

60+ You have to do this – help a student researcher

submitted by garvey@augsburg.edu

I did this – really interesting, and great help to this student researcher. As previously noted in A-mail:

We are seeking eligible participants who are 60 years of age or older to participate in a facial perception study on campus this summer. Participants will have their eye movements monitored by a specialized camera while making judgments about images of human faces. The study is expected to take 30 minutes, and eligible participants will receive $10 USD as compensation. If you, or someone you know, are 60 years of age or older, please contact enriquej@augsburg.edu for more information.

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.
