Dear Augsburg Community,
Earlier this year on January 30 President Pribbenow and Provost Kaivola issued a statement about the executive orders issued by President Trump related to immigration and to undocumented/DACA students. In that statement the president and provost referenced the establishment of an Augsburg website which would provide our community with relevant information and resources. I would like to once again remind the community about the website and add that it has been and will continue to be updated as needed. Additionally, a new page has been added that provides detailed information about 1.) what are considered private and public campus spaces (and what does that mean) and 2.) what to do as a faculty member, staff member, or student in regards to interactions on campus with law enforcement officers from local, state, or federal agencies. The new page can be found here: engage.augsburg.edu/ccat/public-private-spaces.
Please be assured that the Campus Climate Advisory Team (CCAT) and college leadership will continue to work to support all members of our community during these uncertain times.
Sincerely, Joanne K. Reeck

These drop-in hours are designed to expand access to career coaches and to accommodate impromptu student career questions as they arise. During Quick Stop hours students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis for brief, 15-minute drop-in appointments. These times are meant for quick career questions, brief resume or cover letter reviews, or help getting started with an internship or job search.
Quick Stop is not intended to replace longer appointments, and we regret we cannot accommodate career assessment requests during Quick Stop hours (please schedule an individual appointment: 612-330-1148).
