New Inside Augsburg Calendar Has Launched

submitted by grewe@augsburg.edu

On Monday, August 26, Augsburg launched a brand-new unified calendar (inside.augsburg.edu/calendar). This new calendar allows the University to integrate a number of already-existing institutional Google Calendars and display them on the same platform. Students, staff, and faculty will also be able to submit events manually to the calendar. This calendar will replace the previous calendar on the Inside Augsburg homepage.

This new calendar is the result of advocacy from Day Student Government to streamline events and announcements at the University. During fall semester 2018, a number of meetings were held with key event planners and calendar managers around campus to identity challenges to the current calendar system and how to move forward. Based on those discussions, a team was created in the spring to move forward with the creation of a unified calendar system. This team consisted of:

Michael Grewe, Campus Life (Chair)
Sarah Cash-Darvell, University Events
Jami Kadolph, University Events
Scott Krajewski, Information Technology
Stephen Jendraszak, Marketing
Gita Sitaramiah, Public Relations and Internal Communications

The Augsburg University Calendar Policy can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cF1lOy49sS54CZ26kcx27Wy0-OH9ZJsL4IU6TjIlT1c/edit?usp=sharing

Questions about this new calendar can be directed to universitycalendar-mgmt@augsburg.edu.

Celebration and Send-Off for Rachel Svanoe Moynihan

submitted by bouzardg@augsburg.edu

Come join the Sabo Center as we celebrate our dear colleague Rachel Svanoe Moynihan, who is departing Augsburg for an exciting new opportunity at HECUA. Rachel’s work and person has made innumerable impacts on the Augsburg community, from the establishment and stewardship of the Cedar Commons space to LEAD Fellows, interfaith work, organizing in Cedar-Riverside around youth leadership, arts and social change work, cultivating key community partnerships, and SO much more. We are thrilled for Rachel as she embarks on this new adventure, but we will sorely miss her keen questions, compassionate presence, generous listening ear, spunk, creativity, and all-around excellence.

Come for delicious treats, good conversation, and to say goodbye and good luck to Rachel on Wednesday, September 4, from 1:30-3 p.m. in the Sabo Center (LL Anderson Residence Hall).

Very brief remarks will be given around 2:15 p.m.
