15-minute TechTalk webinar–Excel Basics, Wednesday, May 22, 12:30pm

Excel is a powerful platform with many productivity-enhancing features. The trouble is that most of us use only a small percentage of the features available because finding and learning them takes time. Plan to invest 15 minutes to attend this online TechTalk led by LFC Nathan Lind to learn a few quick tips and tricks that will help you take better advantage of what Excel has to offer.
Join the Webinar via Zoom on Wednesday, May 22nd from 12:30-12:45pm, link below.

Going away celebration for Jodi Collen: May 30

submitted by rjohn@augsburg.edu

I am writing to share that Jodi Collen, senior director of University Events, has accepted an event planning leadership position with another organization and will be leaving Augsburg on June 4. (I’m not sure whether her new organization has yet announced her hire, so I won’t name them in this post, but you can certainly ask Jodi about her new role — it sounds very exciting.)

The impact Jodi has made during her time at Augsburg has been nothing short of phenomenal. She was recruited back to Augsburg from a corporate event planner position in 2007 to lead the events department, transforming it from a meeting and event support function into a world-class event planning operation. She set a high bar for what an Augsburg experience should be, and we will greatly miss her vision, her leadership, and her commitment to this place.

We are planning an on-campus send-off for Jodi on Thursday, May 30, at 3 p.m. in the Marshall Room. (Click the link below to add this to your calendar.) Please join us in wishing Jodi well on her new endeavor and celebrating her all amazing accomplishments at Augsburg. It’s quite a legacy!

Send-off for Jodi Collen: May 30, 3 p.m., Marshall Room
