Campus Share Shop at Augsburg, Check it Out

submitted by

Members of the Environmental Stewardship Committee and Campus Cupboard are coming together to create a Campus Share Shop for the students of Augsburg! Our purpose is to create a space where students can check out goods they need, rather than purchasing new items. By doing this, we hope to:
-Reduce the consumption of material goods
-Reduce students’ costs
-Create a community space where students can take part in informal learning around sustainable practices and skill-sharing.

This is a project created by students for students, so we are reaching out to you to find out what you would want to see in the share shop. Please take a few minutes to take a short survey that will aid in creating a share shop that will properly serve the students of Augsburg.

Congratulations to Kyle Huisman, Fall Semester Gilman scholarship winner

submitted by


The U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that Kyle Huisman from Augsburg University was selected to receive the prestigious Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study abroad this Fall 2019. Kyle is a Film major and will be studying in Kofu, Japan on Augsburg’s Exchange program with Yamanashi Gakuin University (iCLA).

Gilman Scholars receive up to $5,000 to apply towards their study abroad or internship program. The Gilman scholarship supports American undergraduate students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad and, since 2001, has enabled more than 24,000 outstanding Americans of diverse backgrounds to engage in a meaningful educational experience abroad. The program has successfully broadened U.S. participation in study abroad, while emphasizing countries and regions where fewer Americans traditionally study. The Gilman Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and is supported in its implementation by the Institute of International Education (IIE).

Since 2008, fifty seven Augsburg students have received Gilman scholarships, totaling $222,500.
