Faculty Applications for Travel September Through November Due Friday, July 1

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

Because of the temporary reduction in full-time faculty professional development funds allocated to Augsburg’s Faculty Development Program (aka CTL), the Program has created a grant review procedure and policy to ensure equitable funding for 2022-2023. (see link to full policy on the CTL website below)

The biggest change for faculty are the new application deadlines. To ensure
equitable distribution of grant funding, the FDC will be reviewing grants in bulk four times during the year. The deadline for your grant application depends primarily on WHEN you will be traveling/having expenses. Please note that you may submit a grant application at any time before your preferred deadline; however grants will not be reviewed until the deadline closes.

Round 2 Deadline: July 1, 2022 (for travel/expenses Sep – Nov 2022)
Round 3 Deadline: October 1, 2022 (for travel/expenses Dec 2022 – Feb 2023)
Round 4 Deadline: January 1, 2023 (for travel/expenses Mar – May 2023)

There is additional and more specific information on the CTL website (see link below) which should answer most of your questions! Please contact CTL (ctl@augsburg.edu) if you have any questions about this temporary policy or would like more information.

Farewell to Catherina Kipper

submitted by tollina@augsburg.edu

Catherina Kipper, URGO’s Prehealth Professions Specialist, will be returning to the University of MN, having accepted a position as an Assistant Director of Advising in the College of Liberal Arts. In the seven plus years that Catherina worked at Augsburg she established a stellar prehealth science advising program and assisted countless students and alums with their applications and interviews to various prehealth science programs. She also served as the advisor to the newly created and active Pre-Dentistry and Pre-PA clubs.

Students sought Catherina out because she provided honest and thorough advice about how to be a competitive prehealth applicant. She is particularly gifted as a writing coach, painstakingly reading multiple drafts of statements and secondary applications, always helping students find their own voices. Because of her commitment and knowledge, more Augsburg students and alums gained admissions to prehealth programs and more of them had multiple offers.

All of her staff and faculty colleagues immediately noticed her professionalism, deep knowledge of the health professions, dedication to student advancement, cross cultural competency and generous nature. As the only other staff member in URGO, Catherina accepted multiple responsibilities to ensure that the office functioned with a high quality of service–always her standard.

We thank her for her dedicated service to Augsburg and wish her the best in her new position.

Please join us on Thursday, July 7th in Hagfors 101 for cake and well wishes from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
