Apply for Undoing White Body Supremacy Pilot Project

submitted by svanoe@augsburg.edu

Dear white-bodied colleagues,

Are you unsure how to respond when a fellow white-bodied person says or does something with a racist impact? Do you ever find yourself, despite your best intentions, feeling uneasy or tense when the topic of race comes up? Do you ever experience the impulse to fight, flee, or freeze in racialized moments and then struggle to navigate the shame of inaction or imperfect action? Are you eager to build loving, accountable community where we can learn to cause less harm and lean into the discomfort that comes with growth?

Learn more and apply to be part of a 2019-2020 academic year cohort of white faculty and staff learning to undo the ways white supremacy shows up in our bodies, not just in our minds. Applications are due by 5:00 p.m on Monday, May 13, 2019. Selected participants will be notified by Friday, May 17, 2019.

The Sabo Center is convening the Undoing White Body Supremacy Pilot Project in partnership with Augsburg’s Equity and Inclusion Initiatives. Contact Rachel Svanoe (svanoe@augsburg.edu) or Allyson Green (greena@augsburg.edu) with questions about this opportunity.

Supporting Student Writers through The Writing Center and WAC

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

This session will explore two separate yet interconnected resources that can help faculty support student writers: The Writing Center and Writing Across the Curriculum. The first part of the session, led by Jenn Forsthoefel, will discuss ways for faculty to encourage their students to take advantage of the Writing Center and expectations faculty should have for the students that use the Writing Center. The second part, led by Sarah Groeneveld Kenney, will review some principles of Writing Across the Curriculum scholarship that can help instructors across the disciplines design more effective writing assignments and equitably assess student writing.

Take a break and dig in the garden this morning

submitted by greena@augsburg.edu

The community garden still needs a little help getting ready for the season – we have about 15 in-ground beds that need their soil loosened up and fed with good nutrients so that our gardeners can begin planting. Come help us dig for a few minutes or a few hours! You don’t need to know what you’re doing… just be willing to dig. Wear sturdy shoes and clothes you can get dirty. Bring work gloves if you have them.

Drop by the community garden anytime between 9-11am Friday to help!
