This year’s conference theme is a Call for Resilience, Resistance, and Hope: Overcoming Racism In Spite Of…
November 2-3, 2018 at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul
Propose a Workshop for the Overcoming Racism Conference
Proposals are invited for workshops/breakout sessions that address the conference theme and objectives above. They will be offered the afternoons of the conference in breakout sessions lasting 90 minutes each. We expect our workshop presenters to create participatory and reflective opportunities for participants to be actively engaged and stimulated.
We need concrete ideas for how to continue this work in spite of all that has come before and all that lies ahead. We need hope and inspiration to continue to confront and disrupt racism in our communities, our institutions and within ourselves. We seek workshop proposals that remind us of our past successes and how those lessons apply today and that hold up bold new visions of our youth leaders.
We seek workshops that speak to “In spite of …” challenges and how you or your organization is responding. What have you learned from past movements that you are using today? What are you doing to lift up new leaders and stay hopeful? What are you doing to stay healthy and energized in this current moment?
Proposals must be received by 5:00 pm on July 30th, 2018

Dear faculty and staff colleagues:
I am excited to announce that Marah Jacobson-Schulte will join us as Augsburg University’s new Registrar. In this role, she will lead and oversee the work of the Registrar’s Office, cultivate strong collaborative partnerships across the University, and serve as a member of the Academic Affairs Leadership Team, key committees, and the UC-Leadership Forum. As the University Registrar, she will report directly to me as provost. Her official start date will be June 27, 2018.
Marah comes to Augsburg having served most recently as registrar for The Sage Colleges in New York. Prior to this position she served for several years as the Director of Experiential Learning and Community Engagement at the College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University. She brings to the position deep leadership experience and a broad understanding of higher education, informed by years of hands-on engagement with students, faculty, and administration. She also brings experience in developing infrastructure, implementing innovative strategies, and cultivating strong partnerships across divisions. She received the bachelor of science in community psychology, the master of science in higher education administration and is completing the doctorate in higher education administration from St. Cloud State University.
I extend my deep gratitude to Tom Kelsey and Christine Berkenpas for their able leadership of the Registrar’s Office during this interim period. I am also grateful for the dedication and commitment of the Registrar’s search committee, chaired by Chief Student Success Officer Katie Bishop, for its good work in identifying highly qualified candidates in the search process.
Please join me in welcoming Marah when she arrives on campus in late June.
