Augsburg Wellbeing is inviting the Retirewise program back to campus. Retirewise is a financial and retirement education program presented by MetLife and is coordinated by our benefits broker, NFP.

It’s a big love Lucy is looking for. Her cross-country mission takes her through hilarious, but equally traumatic relationships in which time and emotion pass in a warped instant. Her quest becomes intertwined with that of a female serial killer. The two women find themselves on an exploration of the geography of the human heart.
Performances: January 30th, 31st, and February 1st at 7:00 PM, February 2nd at 3:00 PM

Civic Action Coaching

Public leadership to make change requires the use of both the “head” and the “heart” to mobilize others to act effectively on behalf of shared values. It engages people in interpreting why they should change the world – their motivation – and how they can act to change it – their strategy. Public narrative is the “why” – the art of translating values into action through stories. Learn about how to craft your own public narrative and relate the story of self, story of us, and story of now.
This workshop builds on other Sabo Center workshops last semester focused on change-making skills. Whether or not you attended a workshop last semester–JOIN US!
TODAY Thursday, January 23
Led by Dennis Donovan. Dennis teaches co-creative politics skills to people of all ages in the Twin Cities, across the US, and around the world who want to make positive change in their communities.
