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 (email@example.com) or Allyson Green (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions about this opportunity.

Department Assessment Roundtables
Some representatives from different departments will be ready to talk about their projects from the past year or two.
Preparing for Academic Program Review
Departments preparing for an Academic Program Review are invited to join a panel discussion and workshop focusing on the available resources, challenges, and opportunities posed by external reviews. Dave Matz (Dean of Arts and Sciences) will be on hand to speak about the administrative process, and faculty members Henry Yoon (Psychology) and Matt Maruggi (Religion) will discuss their departments’ recent successful reviews by reflecting on the processes and structures that worked best for their particular majors.
Presentation of Writing Data/AQUA
As part of the ongoing institutional learning outcome assessment cycle, the assessment committee recently evaluated student writing artifacts from the 2017-2018 academic year. We will present an analysis of the results, and also will introduce our new assessment software, AQUA, which facilitates rubric scoring and visualization of student outcomes.
