As controversy rages over the separation of children and parents and subsequent proposals to incarcerate families, the Political Science Dept. is sponsoring an event that reflects on a past instance of mass incarceration of Americans. The event is co-sponsored by the Twin Cities Japanese American Citizens League.
Dr. Mitch Maki, President and CEO of Go For Broke National Education Center, will speak on the Japanese American experience during World War II. This event is intended specifically to raise awareness among students, but anyone interested is welcome to attend.
WHAT: Program on the World War II Japanese American experience
WHEN: Saturday, June 30, 10:00am-12:30pm
WHERE: Marshall Room Christensen Center
There is no charge, but food will be provided, so attendees are requested to email Carolyn Nayematsu (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name and any dietary restrictions. Students are asked to provide the name of their school.
Dr. Maki will also speak at 6:00pm that evening at the opening of an exhibit on the World War II Japanese American experience, at the Minnesota Historical Society, Fort Snelling. The exhibit will include a display on Japanese American students who attended Augsburg during WWII. Thanks to Professor Phil Adamo, who provided key assistance that made this possible.

You may notice an influx of prospective students and their families on campus June 25-29 as Augsburg University hosts families for Minnesota Private College Week!
Lot G is reserved all week for Admission guests, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm, so please plan on parking elsewhere this week. Thank you in advance for all you do to help us recruit future Auggies!
If you see a guest during this time that looks lost, please assist them. The idea of this week is to welcome families to campus, introduce them to students and faculty, and share with them what Minnesota private colleges and universities have to offer. Our introductory tours and informational meetings can serve as a first step to help students discover just what they are looking for in a college — especially if they are early in the search.
There will be an open house from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm and from 2:00 – 4:30 pm each day that week, and most of the event will be held in the Hagfors Center.
Please contact the Office of Admissions if you have any questions. We are excited to have this large event on campus this summer to help grow the Augsburg community, and appreciate your help and patience.
