New Website for the Preparations to Support the Incoming First-Year Class

submitted by rjohn@augsburg.edu

We have launched a website, inside.augsburg.edu/classof2023 to help inform the campus about the work of the action team Provost Karen Kaivola has convened to coordinate preparations to support the very large expected incoming first-year class.

The site includes a roster of the action team members, a page that provides an overview of the various initiatives in progress, and a page that lists the departments and programs that the action team has engaged in this work.

The site also has a tab where you can submit questions or suggestions. If there’s an area you believe the action team should be addressing, let us know. If you need additional clarification on the work of the action team, let us know that. We will update the site regularly. (The action team will meet weekly this summer.)
