New for 2020, we have an IT Status service we’ve been testing internally and we’re ready to release to you.
On this page you can subscribe to receive email or text alerts about major service issues (you can even select which services you care about – moodle, telecom, internet, etc). Please keep in mind a human still has to create the alerts and in some cases solving the problem will take priority over updating the status page. Some updates may come after the fact.
Our hope is that this empowers you, if you’re interested, to receive updates about major service issues that you care about.

Every morning, I curate the social media newsfeed from Inside Augsburg, I oversee A-mail and the digital screens, and maintain Augsburg’s News and Media blog.

Sophomores: Preliminary applications close this Friday, January 10, for the Phillips Scholars program. The Phillips Scholars Program recognizes and rewards private college students who strive to make life better for those with unmet needs. Applicants are challenged to think creatively and become community-service leaders, and receive a total of $16,000 in scholarship.
A preliminary mini-application (linked below) is used to select two finalists from Augsburg University who will then develop a full proposal to be submitted to the Minnesota Private College Council for the scholarship. This will include a 5-7 page project proposal, official transcript, and 3 letters of recommendation. Staff members of the Sabo Center will help finalists complete their applications.
Applicants must be a sophomore during the 2019-2020 school year.
Each year, projects must fit within a theme. This year’s application theme is “Addressing the Achievement/Opportunity Gap in Minnesota.”
Scholarship recipients receive $6,000 during their junior year, a $4,000 stipend while completing a summer project, and $6,000 their senior year upon successful completion of their summer project.
Last year, 3 of the 5 Phillips Scholar recipients were Augsburg students, and many Augsburg students have received the scholarship in the past. Check out the Phillips Scholar website for more information about current and former Phillips Scholars and their projects: https://www.mnprivatecolleges.org/giving/our-scholarships/phillips-scholars-program/current-phillips-scholars
