We have multiple summer opportunities available for students.

URGO Summer Research Program:
The URGO Summer Research Program is an 11-week, on-campus program where students are funded to conduct research with a faculty mentor. Students receive support throughout the research process from their faculty mentor, a Speaker Series, and weekly seminars with fellow researchers. URGO provides full-time summer researchers (400 hours) with a $4,000 stipend and housing discount while half-time researchers (200 hours) receive a $2,000 stipend. The program runs from May 15th – July 28th.

URGO also provides funding for students to work for a professor as a research assistant on an ongoing research project. This is a 100-hour commitment over the course of the summer and comes with a $1,000 stipend. This is an excellent opportunity to try out research for the first time or focus on a specific aspect of a research project.

Phase 1 of the applications are due February 1st.

Faculty Workshop: Supporting Students with Mental Health Concerns

submitted by

Campuses across the United States have been experiencing a significant increase of students with mental health concerns. This national trend is also apparent at Augsburg College.

Staff from the Center for Wellness and Counseling (CWC) and the Center for Learning and Accessible Student Services (CLASS), invite faculty for a session to discuss and share with colleagues strategies that work in the classroom for addressing the needs of these students. This will be an informal consultation continuing to define how faculty can be helpful to one another and how support staff can be of assistance.

Romantic Relationships Study ($10 Cash Compensation)

submitted by

My name is Anabel Chavez, and I am a Psychology major and McNair Scholar at Augsburg College. I am conducting research this semester as a part of my Psychology Honors project and I would like to invite you to participate in my study!

This study looks at how relationship memories may relate to relationship satisfaction. Therefore, the study asks for participants to disclose two personal relationship-defining memories.

WHO can participate?
Participants are required to be at least 18 years of age and are currently involved in a romantic (but not marital) relationship. Participants will also need to have been in their current romantic relationship for at least 6 months (or longer). Participants who have participated in my summer research experiment, cannot participate again.

The study will require participants to come to the Augsburg College campus to take a survey (20-30 minutes). Participants will then have the choice to either receive 1 credit for their research participation requirement in PSY105/PSY215 or receive a $10 cash compensation for their time and effort.

For any further questions, concerns, or to schedule an appointment please send me an email at

Thank You!

Film Screening Next Week: Disturbing the Peace

submitted by

Disturbing the Peace is a story of the human potential unleashed when we stop participating in a story that no longer serves us and, with the power of our convictions, take action to create new possibilities. The film follows former enemy combatants — Israeli soldiers and Palestinian fighters — who have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” When someone is willing to disturb the status quo and stand for the dream of a free and secure world, who will stand with them?

The Minneapolis screening will take place here at Augsburg Campus:
When: Wednesday, February 8th from 7:00-9:00 pm
Where Sateren Auditorium, Augsburg College
2211 Riverside Avenue

The premiere will be followed by a discussion with members of Combatants for Peace and moderated by UMN Theater Professor Sonja Kuftinec.

Co-sponsored by: University of Minnesota Department of Theatre Arts & Dance and Institute for Advanced Study, Augsburg College – Nobel Peace Prize Forum, and East Side Freedom Library

Note: The film does contain some scenes of graphic violence from the conflict in Israel and Palestine
