The MINNE Holocaust Fellows program annually selects college students to participate in a fully-paid, one-day trip to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. to acquire a more in-depth knowledge of the Holocaust. Fellows tour the permanent exhibits and featured exhibits, as well as meet with a museum representative. Awards come through the MINNE Fund of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, who has chosen Augsburg to be one of the select few universities to participate in the program. Multiple Augsburg students were selected last year for the trip.
The 2019 trip will take place on April 16th. Applications are due on February 28th and can be found at http://jewishminneapolis.org/minne/. If you would like to learn more about the program or would like advising on the application, please contact the URGO office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-330-1446.

Augsburg’s Interfaith Scholars, a group of students who are interested in exploring the religious diversity of the Augsburg student body, the wider Twin Cities community, and the United States through interreligious dialogue and action, are organizing a campus wide art project focused on the question: “What brings you light?” This is an ambiguous prompt, as our goal is to engage with folks from many different religious, spiritual, and secular backgrounds and to showcase what is the “light” in our lives despite our different beliefs.
We ask the members of the Augsburg community to reflect on what brings them light, and to photograph if they are able. Perhaps it is a beloved pet, a significant other, a spice rack because you love cooking, a pocket bible, a special place you spend time in, etc. If it is not something you’re able to photograph, a selfie would be a great submission! Please send appropriate content, as these photos will be displayed at the “Interfaith Art Project Showcase” on April 4th in the Gundale Chapel, located in Hagfors from 5pm-8pm.
We are also asking for an audio clip with your photo submission. You can talk about what your light is or answer one of the following questions the Interfaith Scholars has compiled. Please send your photo submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may submit a text description or an audio recording between 30 seconds and 90 seconds long answering any of these questions:
– What brings you light?
– What brings you meaning?
– What brings you joy?
Please feel free to interpret the question in whatever way resonates with you. Be creative, be spontaneous, and be intentional. Please let us know if you have any questions on this art project or are unsure on how to complete the submission.
We look forward to seeing (and hearing!) from you.

Hello Augsburg Community! AASA invites all students, faculty, and staff to AASA’s 4th Cultural Exploration.
The Augsburg Asian Student Association’s Cultural Exploration purposes are to explore a culture in the Pan-Asian community in a variety of ways to educate our members and to have a better understanding of a Pan-Asian culture.
Cultural Exploration: Japanese American History will take place during AASA’s 10th General Meeting from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm in room Hagfors 150A on February 18th, 2019.
AASA is happy to announce that we have invited Augsburg Faculty Andrew L Aoki, Professor, Chair of Political Science and Sabo Fellow, to present on Japanese American History. AASA will also be having guest speaker Sally Sudo, from the Twin Cities Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) Education Committee, who will be speaking on their lived experience through the Japanese Internment camp during World War II.
This can be a heavy topic for some people, so we ask that you come with intentionality to learn and respect what the presenters have to share.
We hope to see everyone join us on the 18th of February.
