Yesterday, Augsburg President Paul Pribbenow sent an email to faculty, staff, and students about the upcoming name change of Augsburg College to “Augsburg University” this September.
As you know, the Augsburg Corporation, our governing body of representatives of four synods of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, voted in support of a resolution by the Augsburg Board of Regents to change our name to Augsburg University effective September 2017.
