Congratulations to Michael Wentzel, Associate Professor of Chemistry, on being selected as one of this year’s faculty participants in the 2019 seminar on Teaching Vocational Exploration. This competitive seminar offers a rich learning experience for faculty with demonstrated commitment to teaching vocational exploration to their students—an educational journey that helps students discover what constitutes a good, meaningful, and flourishing life, a life that cultivates well-being for others as well as oneself. There is no better gift Augsburg can offer our students. We are excited that Michael will join next summer’s NetVUE faculty seminar.

Outgoing Departmental USPS Mail

submitted by

This memo concerns only mail that is being charged to departments and not stamped or pre-paid mail or any mail/packages from other carriers.

Augsburg Central Services is switching the way that outgoing mail is handled. We are retiring the mail meter machine and starting to use a presort mail service. This brings with it some small changes that we would ask you to observe if you are sending out mail.

– If your mail is not sealed please bring it to shipping/receiving or have it ready for pickup with the flaps down and not nested.
– All mail has to have a complete “To Address” in the center of the envelope and a complete “Return Address” in the upper left of the envelope. If it does not have both of these it may be returned to you to complete.
– Please include the cost center either on a post-it note attached to your mail or somewhere on the piece (top piece if multiple) that will not interfere with postage (upper right) or addresses.
– All mail must be in shipping/receiving before 3:30 to be processed the same day. This is a little later than it used to be.

We will still have our regular USPS pickup at 3pm for any stamped or pre-paid mail or packages. If you have any additional questions about this transition please contact us at either 612-330-1054 or

You’re Invited to a Story Circle

submitted by

A Story Circle is an opportunity to gather in groups of 5-25 people for 1½ to 2 hours to tell stories, write down thoughts, and share experiences about Augsburg. It’s a great way to build community for groups and organizations, and provides an opportunity to share what Augsburg means to you. Out of these stories, we will create a new Music-Theater piece about, for, and with people who have been or are currently a part of the Augsburg University Community to be performed during our Sesquicentennial Homecoming, October 2019.

We would love to hear YOUR stories! Click the link below to RSVP for an upcoming Story Circle – or request to schedule a Story Circle.
