Augsburg Faculty and Staff:
You are invited to attend the twenty-fourth annual Vocation of a Lutheran College Conference at Augsburg University from Monday, July 16 to Wednesday, July 18.
Each year, five faculty members from each of the ELCA Colleges come together to explore the distinct roles that they play in higher education. One of the benefits being the host site is that we have the option of inviting more than five people to attend. This year’s theme is “Civil Discourse in a Fragmented and Multi-Religious Society.”
The conference will begin with an opening session at 5 pm followed by a dinner at 7:00 pm on July 16 and conclude by 1:00 pm on July 18.

Augsburg students Kitana Holland and Erika Idrovo-Cuesta awarded U.S. Department of State’s Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad!
The U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that Kitana Holland and Erika Idrovo-Cuesta from Augsburg University are selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study or intern abroad this fall 2018. Both students are seniors; Kitana is majoring in Sociology, while Erika is majoring in Political Science/Public Policy. They will both be studying this fall on CGEE’s own semester program in Namibia: Nation Building, Globalization and Decolonizing the Mind.
Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad or internship program. The Gilman scholarship supports American undergraduate students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad and, since 2001, has enabled more than 24,000 outstanding Americans of diverse backgrounds to engage in a meaningful educational experience abroad. The program has successfully broadened U.S. participation in study abroad, while emphasizing countries and regions where fewer Americans traditionally study. The Gilman Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and is supported in its implementation by the Institute of International Education (IIE).
Since 2008, fifty four Augsburg students have received Gilman scholarships, totaling $214,000.
