Very Last Chance: Forum Survey

submitted by hermansb@augsburg.edu

Last month, Augsburg University hosted the 30th Nobel Peace Prize Forum Minneapolis (NPPF). This was the final Forum bearing the Nobel name, and building on our 30 years of experience, there is strong interest in continuing to convene an annual international forum at Augsburg to showcase our commitments to global perspectives, living faith, active citizenship, and meaningful work.

As we look toward the future, we want your ideas for what a redesigned Forum might look and feel like here at Augsburg. How will a “signature event” that expresses our institutional commitments be designed to align with students interests and curriculum across a range of departments?
