Staff Senate is STILL accepting nominations to honor outstanding staff and outstanding newcomers at Augsburg University! Nominations for the Outstanding Staff and Newcomer Awards will now be accepted through the end of day FRIDAY, MARCH 6TH.
Nominations are welcomed from any current member of the campus community – staff, faculty, or student.
The Staff Appreciation Program is intended to recognize staff members who have made an important contribution to the campus community over the past year. Recipients of the Outstanding Staff Award provide exceptional service to others, work collaboratively across divisions or departments, demonstrate a clear commitment to equity and inclusion, and enhance the objectives of their department and the mission of Augsburg University through creativity, innovation, and hard work.
The Newcomer Award recognizes a staff person who has made a significant impact on campus life in a short amount of time. Staff who have been at Augsburg for two years or less (as of February 1, 2020) are eligible to receive this award.

I am grateful for the many members of our community who participated in the campus visits by the three finalists for the Christensen Professor. I especially want to thank Pastor Sonja Hagander and the search committee – Professor Lori Hale, Professor Jeremy Myers, Dean Ryan Haaland, Chief Inclusion Officer Joanne Reeck, Chief HR Officer Dawn Miller, and student Ian Heseltine – for their good and thoughtful work throughout this important process.
After careful consideration of the many gifts and experiences our finalists offered, I have decided that we have not yet found the next incumbent for this singular role at Augsburg. We therefore will pause the search for now and return to an active process in the new academic year. I know that the right person is out there to build on the legacy of Dr. David Tiede and Dr. Martha Stortz, the first two Christensen Professors – and we will find that person when the time is right.
