Supervisor Thank You to the CWC Staff

submitted by

I want to publicly thank and recognize the entire CWC staff for their work in supporting students in their wellbeing and student success. The staff connects with other departments on campus, as well as in the community. The strengths of each individual combine together for a strong team and is needed to uphold our responsibilities to students. I am grateful for the dedication of each person and for the work of the team. This year, CWC staff met with a record number of students in a great time of change. In 2019-2020, the CWC staff provided individual counseling for 384 students and 2135 counseling sessions were attended in person or on zoom.

In addition, there was educational outreach to the Augsburg community in many ways – through EPIC Peer Educators, Health Fairs, Stress Workshops, and other venues. A new group on life skills was created and well received by students. The partnerships with other services in academic and student affairs and with faculty are something we want to celebrate and to grow. I am grateful for the contributions of each one of the CWC staff members.

Good health and best wishes to all of you at Augsburg, as we conclude another academic year.
