The Strommen Center has been in communication with the Registrar, Academic Deans, and Chief Student Success Officer to create a plan to accommodate students during this unusual circumstance and to honor the work they have already put into their internships. An email has been sent to all Faculty Supervisors of students currently completing internships.
As you are aware, we recognize that students are likely to be nervous about their futures, including what is happening with internships that they are currently registered for.
On Friday, March 20th we emailed all students who are currently registered for an academic spring internship or a 0 – credit Augsburg Experience. The message in the email included the following text:
In this time of uncertainty, we want you to know that we are here to support you in completing your spring internship.
Since you are registered for a spring internship, the University wants you to know that if your internship site is closed or you are no longer able to meet your hours because of issues related to the coronavirus, Augsburg will honor the work you have already completed.
Please work with your faculty supervisor to determine what needs to happen for credit to be granted. Any student who was using their internship to meet the Augsburg Experience requirement will be granted Augsburg Experience.
For those students that are able to continue to work at their internship you should complete your commitment.
If you have questions, please contact Sandy Tilton, Employer Relations & Operations Associate at 612-330-1472 or email email@example.com

As the Minnesota Department of Health shared new measures to slow the spread of COVID-19—and as those guidelines remain in place—University Events has been working with our campus partners to address bringing Augsburg events into compliance.
As of Wednesday night, we’ve contacted all event hosts with events through May 1 and some—for which event hosts reached out to us proactively—for later in May. If you have an event scheduled prior to May 1 and haven’t heard from your planner please reach out to them. If you are hosting an event know you can independently cancel your event. If you decide to cancel your event please notify your planner as soon as possible so they can assist with navigating the cancellation.
There are three alternatives we are discussing with event hosts:
1. Live Stream / Video Conference (or other alternate modality) – Some events can be conducted online, via conference call, or in other ways that do not require face-to-face interaction.
2. Postpone – For events that will be postponed, we are asking event hosts to hold off on rescheduling for specific future dates at this time. Augsburg will be monitoring the situation and University Events will be in touch with updates about rescheduling.
3. Cancel – Many events won’t be able to be rescheduled for a number of reasons.
At this time we are not scheduling in-person events or rescheduling events that would take place March 26 – July 31, 2020. University Events is scheduling and planning virtual events. Fill out the event form for your virtual event and a planner will be assigned to you.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
