submitted by burton@augsburg.edu

Help us send off our graduating seniors at the U.S. Bank Stadium this year! Annually we rely on staff, current students and alumni to assist with the success and smooth flow of the event.

There are many needs for assistance to help with checking in students, escorting students to field level, assisting with accessible seating, handing out programs and/or providing directional support at the stadium. Many of these opportunities would allow you the ability to stay and view the ceremony in its entirety.

If you’re interested in assisting with staffing this very important event and ensuring a wonderful experience for our students and their families, please fill out the Commencement Staffing Form and someone will reach out to you to discuss.

Creating an Inclusive Campus Workshop – May 15

submitted by garvey@augsburg.edu

The Creating an Inclusive Campus (CIC) Workshop is Wed., May 15, 1-4 pm. The topic is:
Managing the Moments
Arguably the best learning takes place when all students feel able to bring their full selves forward and engage in an environment that considers the historical context and current cultural climate; with the humility and promise to learn with others. This workshop will engage us in recognizing and responding to dynamic moments born out of human differences while honoring our commitments to intentional diversity. Participants will have the opportunity to examine and respond to scenarios in small groups.

Developed and sponsored by the Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Committee. Facilitated by Joanne Reeck, Chief Inclusion Officer, with faculty and staff providing information and experiences.

The CIC is one of several sessions and workshops offered May 14-16. For a full schedule, as well as descriptions of all of the sessions, check out:
