Custodial Appreciation

submitted by jacobsn@augsburg.edu

Student groups in the Sabo Center are coming up with ways to show appreciation specifically to Custodial Staff on campus. In order to maintain social distancing, we have gathered some ideas on how to virtually express our gratitude.

If you are interested in being a part of this project, we invite you to fill out this form with a short video OR a typed message for Custodial staff members who are still working hard on campus through the health crisis. If you do share a video, please add a typed message in addition to make the messages accessible to all.

Please make submissions by end of day Thursday, April 16th. Thank you!

Summer Housing Update

submitted by blom@augsburg.edu

We continue to closely monitor the impact of COVID-19 on our ability to provide summer housing. Due to the State-wide regulations put in place and to account for the safety of our community, summer housing will not be available to the Augsburg community other than those students who fit into the categories below AND currently live on campus.

The residence halls only remain open this summer for our resident students who currently reside on campus and are unable to find alternative housing for the following reasons:
1. International students
2. Students who have insecure housing
3. Students whose home is not safe
4. Students with health reasons

We are directing all students who do not currently live on campus and those who live on campus currently but fall outside of these four categories to pursue off campus options at this time.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Residence Life at residencelife@augsburg.edu for further information.

Tracking COVID-19 Expenses – Subobject 6457

submitted by stepanek@augsburg.edu

Subobject # 6457:

People should use the 6457 sub-object number when coding invoices and p-card expenses that are the result of Augsburg’s response to the coronavirus. Augsburg will need this information as it monitors the appropriate use of federal stimulus funds and other governmental aid, assesses the impact for insurance purposes, and reports the financial impact to the Board, bond holders and credit agencies. So, being thorough is very important.

If anyone runs into issues (e.g., a cost center not set up for subobjects), they can email Administrative Accounting (administrative.accounting.grp@augsburg.edu).

Thank you.

Keeping Track of Auggies

From Prof. Doug Green: Beyond Shakespeare

submitted by green@augsburg.edu

My first non-Shakespearean article in decades was just published; it’s on the neo-western film “Hell or High Water”: “Appropriating the Comanche: ‘Hell or High Water’ and the New Southwest.” A big thanks to our Augsburg American Indian Studies colleague Elise Marubbio, one of the co-editors of this special issue of the journal Zeitschrift für Anglistik und Amerikanistik, for encouraging me to contribute.
