Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Social Workers MN Chapter

submitted by

Lifetime Achievement Award – Nancy Rodenborg, MSW, LGSW, MIA, PhD

Dr. Rodenborg was a United Nations volunteer in Somalia in the early 1980’s, setting the stage for her life-long commitment to transcultural relationships and international development with a global perspective. Since then, she has dedicated her research to understand the interactions between cultures and to apply that understanding particularly for the well-being of those who are newcomers, immigrants, refugees, people with disabilities, and/or from historically oppressed groups. Her dissertation research focused on the influence of institutional racism and discrimination in child welfare cases, building on her prior work as a child protection social worker or supervisor in Brown, Dakota and Hennepin Counties in Minnesota and a child protection trainer in Oregon. Her work embodies the link between theory and practice in the field of social work.

In addition to her teaching and research on diversity and inequality, Dr. Rodenborg has been a leader in global education, helping develop the Social Work in Mexico semester and leading student educational groups to Norway and Namibia, and implementing diversity curriculum programs including the Intergroup Dialogue method. Her research on intergroup dialogue and aversive racism is pioneering in the field and has helped frame the multicultural foundations of Augsburg’s MSW program. Dr. Rodenborg is also a remarkable collaborator who has partnered on numerous projects with faculty colleagues in her department, University, and with community partners, and has served on boards and commissions in community, nonprofit and educational settings.

On July 10-12, the Sabo Center will be hosting a national conference on campus for the Place-Based Justice Network (read more about it by clicking on the link, below). As part of that conference, on Thursday, July 11, we will be having an evening reception hosted by the McKnight Foundation at their offices in downtown Minneapolis.

You are welcome to attend the reception between the driving shifts, and we are offering a $25 gift card to each driver! You can also use community service hours if you choose.

2003 Honda Accord For Sale

submitted by

2003 Honda Accord EX-L for sale AS IS.

This 4-door sedan runs GREAT and has all-new brakes (October 2018) and a brand new steering column pump (March 2019). The interior is all leather, heated driver and passenger seats.

203,000 miles and going strong!

I am selling the car AS IS. The car has some body damage due to a recent run-in with a deer: the left headlight needs to be replaced, and the front hood is indented and needs to be fixed before a next oil change. The front bumper has some significant cracks from the cold winter, but could simply be more firmly re-attached where it was jostled by the deer. However, the car is running perfectly otherwise and I have been able to drive it without any problems.

Even with the recent front-end damage, this car is worth $3,500. I’m selling it for $2,000.

Please contact me (Green Bouzard, if you want more information. See the link below for photos.
