Augsburg University is participating in the 2018 Great Colleges to Work For survey. The survey opened Monday, February 19 and will remain open until Monday, March 5. Eligible participants received an email from ModernThink which contained a survey invitation and link to the survey.
Important things to note:
– Survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
– Your responses to the survey will be completely confidential. ModernThink LLC, an independent survey firm, will not provide Augsburg with any information that would enable us to trace survey data back to any one individual.
– Your participation is very valuable and desired, but voluntary.
– Frequently Asked Questions and Answers on the HR Moodle site: http://web.augsburg.edu/hr/ModernThinkSurveyFAQs2018.pdf
Human Resources recognizes that many members of our community have work that does not require use of a computer, or who may not have a dedicated office. We will be hosting computer lab sessions for employees to ask any questions they might have, get assistance with the process, and complete the survey.
These sessions are scheduled at the following dates and times:
February 22—4:00-5:00pm, Sverdrup Hall 204
February 28—8:00-9:00 am, Sverdrup Hall 205
March 2—10:00-11:00 am, Sverdrup Hall 204

The Environmental Stewardship Committee (ESC) is keeping track of creative solutions to replace bottled water and #LoveLocalWater. Here’s what we have so far. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with more ideas or scenarios to navigate!
For campus visitors:
Instead of providing bottled water to visitors coming to campus, we encourage departments to use language like this to alert visitors to our policy: Augsburg University is phasing out bottled water on campus in order to reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions and support the provision of water as a human right and not a commodity. While on campus, you will have access to clean Minneapolis tap water. If you are not able to bring your own water bottle to campus, please let us know if we can provide you with a glass/cup to use and return or with a reusable water bottle to use and keep. We appreciate your support as we #LoveLocalWater together!
If you provide hot water to visitors through a Culligan dispenser, consider purchasing an electric tea kettle for your office space in order to get ready for the eventual phase-out of Culligan.
Order water by the gallon through A’viands catering.
Purchase water pitchers and reusable/compostable cups for your department (if sink access for washing is an issue, contact us for ideas).
The Environmental Action Committee (Student Government) may be able to help with purchasing supplies that will directly benefit students as we move away from bottled water.
Learn more on the ESC Website

We’re not alone, folks! Learn from other schools implementing bottled water policies in our next #LoveLocalWater blog post by ENV100 students.
