submitted by

The Strommen Center for Meaningful Work held our first annual Employer Recognition Event on Tuesday, April 24th. The event was a huge success and we would like to especially recognize the following award recipients:

Faculty Champions – Tony Clapp, Exercise Science; George Dierberger, Business Administration; Nancy Fisher, Sociology; Stacy Freiheit and Bridget Robinson-Riegler, Psychology department.

Recognizes those faculty members who teach internship seminars/serve as advisors to large numbers of students completing internships for academic credit and otherwise are advocates of the work of the Strommen Center.

Rising Star Recipients – U.S. Bank & Fairview Health Services – IT

These employers have demonstrated increasing engagement with the Strommen Center in multiple ways, including attending our job fair, hosting information sessions, conducting on campus interviews, partnering with us on new initiatives (such as MSP TechHire) and hiring increasing numbers of interns and full-time employees from Augsburg.

Outstanding Employer Partner – Travelers

Recognizes the employer that has made a significant investment of resources in the quest to help our students develop professionally. Through EDGE, Travelers has provided 33 scholars with financial and professional development support.

We also would like to thank Nicolas Adducci ’16, Mubarik Hassan ’18, Dustina Granlund ’14 and Kevin Tran ’18 who each shared reflections on what their internships have meant to them and how their internship has launched their careers.

Congratulations to all of the award recipients!
