Hello all. Please see this important message from Zahra Hassan, of Fairview Hospital, who works with Augsburg’s Health Commons program in Cedar-Riverside.
“The drought in Somalia is turning into the worst Famine in 60 years. Beginning of this month over a two day span over 100 people died in one area due to hunger. The people in Somalia need us as much as the ones we are working here at the Health Commons. Our work in the Health Commons involves providing resources and working together with the community to achieve optimum health. With many of the community we serve in our Cedar Riverside Health Commons having families in Somalia they are affected by what is happening back home. As part of Health Commons team I thought we can assist in contributing to making a difference in Somalia. Below is a non-profit organization I am volunteering with that is on the ground in Somalia and other parts of East Africa. I am reaching out to ask for donations and would like you to pass on the link for others to please donate.
BaitulMaal is a non-profit organization that worked in Somalia the last famine that took place in 2011 and I volunteered with them to conduct fund raising events here in Minneapolis. Please pass it on.
Here is the link: http://www.baitulmaal.org/worst-drought-60-years-hitting-horn-africa/”
Please help out in any way you are able. If you have concerns or need more information please contact email@example.com.

Two artists are looking for text passages to accompany three pieces designed for the new building, and we are looking for student input. Selections of text may come from any literary work or religious text of any faith tradition, as long as they are inspiring and fitting with the spirit of the artwork. Display boards depicting the artwork designs will be posted around campus, where anyone may fill out a slip and drop it in the submission box. Or check out the link below to see more information about the artists and make submissions online.

I stand here today willing and able to serve you on the Augsburg Day Student Government at whatever capacity is asked of me to the best of my ability. As my values and goals as a person very much so align with Augsburg’s mission as a college, I am listening and I can hear you. As stated in our college’s mission statement, “Augsburg College educates students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders”. It is a right of every student to be informed of what is happening within our Augsburg community and within our surrounding communities. I want to be your eyes and ears striving to keep you informed and up to date with what is going on in our communities. As we grow toward thoughtful stewardship, I want us to embrace our individual qualities that make us unique, our talents, our strengths, our flaws and weaknesses, which allow us to grow, and have confidence in our own independence as college students and growing adults. Others frequently comment that I am an avid critical thinker. I want to know more than just the solution to a problem. I want to know how we arrived at the solution from the problem. I believe transparency is highly important, and it is something that is very important to me. I will strive to be as transparent as possible with you as your class senator. I have a duty and responsibility to be a leader within our community. I want students to know that I am listening and that I can hear you. I encourage you to reach out to me if this message I have shared today has provoked some thoughts or ideas that you may or may not have felt the most comfortable in addressing. I want your voice to be heard because it needs to be heard. Your voice is invaluable. I hope today you feel empowered to do so. Thank you for the opportunity to run for class senator and to serve you!
Future ADSG Class Senator
