Weekly Writing Tips from the Writing Center

submitted by sonquisi@augsburg.edu

1) Don’t be afraid of cut and paste! Sometimes a really good sentence or idea shows up in a paragraph that you don’t eventually need. Salvage the best ideas from your first draft and build your paper around those.
2) Write your outline with topic sentences. The first sentence of each paragraph shouldn’t just introduce the “topic” of what you’re talking about, it should also make a point or argument about each topic (in this way, think of the topic sentences as baby thesis statements for each paragraph). Good academic writing is argumentative, not just informative, and it’s helpful to organize your ideas around arguments, not just topics.
3) If you’re unsure about your thesis statement, that’s the best time to come to the writing center. The rest of your paper will be a million times easier to write if you can center it around an effective thesis statement.
4) Don’t try to “sound smart” in your writing – it’s always better to make sense than to use big words. Professors can tell when you’re trying to write in a way you usually wouldn’t. Just write in your own voice (guaranteed you’re smart enough already)
5) Talk to other people in your class about their papers: their thesis statements, the evidence they’re using, even the important feedback they’ve gotten from this professor before. Hearing other ideas will make you more creative.
6) The best way to become a better writer is to read more. This is true of your field – the best way to become a better poet is to read more poetry, the best way to become a better writer about sociology is to read more sociology articles.

• 200 or 400 hours
• Program runs May 14-July 29, 2020
• Full-time = $4,400 plus housing stipend

Research support for faculty through the URGO Summer Research Program

submitted by kipperj@augsburg.edu

The URGO Summer Research Program is designed to enhance undergraduate student learning and support faculty research and creative activity here on campus. Faculty are the driving force behind the research program, and we want it to be as beneficial to you as possible.
While summer is the perfect time to push research projects ahead, we know all too well how quickly the time goes. We have research grants for 400, 200, and 100 student research hours that are designed to provide you with the optimal amount of student research support needed for your project. The 100-hour research assistantship is a particularly good fit if you have needs for data entry, transcription, or literature review.
Some of you may have already been approached by students who would like to do summer research through URGO. We encourage you to think about how these students might support your own research agenda. While some advanced students might have a project in mind, we have found that students benefit the most from working within a faculty member’s area of expertise and current line of inquiry.
To learn more about URGO summer research and working with a student, visit the “on-campus research” page on the URGO website: www.augsburg.edu/urgo.
Please encourage interested students to make an appointment with URGO staff by contacting urgo@augsburg.edu.

Auggie Basics Application Now Available

submitted by randallj@augsburg.edu

As part of the Augsburg University Equity Proposal, the Auggie Basics – Housing initiative is designed to address the needs of students who experience housing instability.

If the student secures permanent housing elsewhere, they will be released from the program and the spot will be offered to another student. Summer housing may be an option. Students must reapply each academic year. Being chosen for the Auggie Basics program one year does not guarantee participation in future years.

As part of the program, students will be encouraged to utilize resources on campus. These include but are not limited to the Center for Wellness and Counseling, the Center for Learning and Accessible Student Services (CLASS) office, TRiO/SSS, Academic Advising, Multicultural Student Services, Student Affairs office, etc. The Dean of Students will provide ongoing communication and support throughout the academic year to make sure students are aware of resources and may access them as necessary.

To apply, please complete the application by February, 17, 2020. If you have any questions, please contact studentaffairs@augsburg.edu or call the Student Affairs office at 612 330 1160.

DICP: Intercultural Communication and Conflict Styles Workshop

submitted by mouajj@augsburg.edu

This workshop makes use of the Intercultural Conflict Style (ICS) Inventory, which describes an individual’s preferred approach or style for resolving conflict by reflecting the individual’s culturally learned patterns for dealing with disagreements and expressing emotions. Additionally, this workshop will not only teach individuals about their own preferred approach and style, but also about the preferred approaches and styles of others. Finally, this workshop will give participants tangible skills that can be used when navigating communication and conflict across cultural differences. The increased understanding of intercultural communication and conflict styles and tangible skills participants will receive from this workshop can both enhance their overall intercultural competence, increase their effectiveness when working to resolve disagreements across cultures, and help them to create more inclusive campus spaces at Augsburg.

Blood Memory (Adoption and ICWA)

submitted by marubbio@augsburg.edu

The Augsburg Native American Film Series presents Blood Memory on February 19, 2020.
The title “Blood Memory” is derived from the concept that the experiences of one generation are passed onto the next through DNA. Future generations live with the shared knowledge of their ancestors – meaning there is a foundation of survival instinct and cultural identity that exists within us prior to learned experience. In many ways, this is a beautiful and poetic concept, but trauma and abuse can also be transferred intergenerationally, sometimes unknown to the carrier. This film is about acknowledging and honoring all aspects of blood memory, and how we as individuals and community members heal our collective traumas and learn to pass positive ancestral knowledge to the next generation–Director’s Statement (Blood Memory, Official Film Site)
Blood Memory, a true life “dark-horse political thriller”, tells Sandy White Hawk’s story of adoption out of her home community at a young age and her work to help the “stolen generation” of the American Indian Adoption Era return home. Intertwined with her saga is that of Mark Fiddler, an ICWA lawyer whose advocacy as co-council in Adoptive Couple vs. Baby Girl 2013 helped to dismantle the law he once fought to protect (Vision Maker Media). Join Sandy White Hawk for an evening of screening the film and discussion.
