“Fellowship Fridays” Start This Week

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

CTL is joining Bridget Robinson-Riegler, Psychology Professor and member of Faculty Senate, to bring you Fellowship Fridays support sessions. Beginning Friday, June 19, all faculty members and teaching staff are invited to gather and share their experiences with teaching, learning, and advising in this strange new world. – we’ll trade ideas, advice, highs, lows, successes, and failures – or maybe we’ll just plain old vent. Most importantly, we will attempt to inoculate ourselves against one of the more insidious side effects of this pandemic – isolation. So grab a cup of coffee or tea, or pour a glass of wine, and Zoom in to support your fellow instructors and work through this challenging time together.

*If Friday afternoons don’t work with your schedule, but you would still like to participate, reach out to Bridget or Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright, and they will contemplate adding other days/times in the future.

Fridays starting June 19 (no session on July 3) | “Fellowship Fridays” | 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm, ZOOM

TOMORROW – More than Meets the Eye: A New Direction for Conversations on Disability

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: June 18, 2020 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Level: Introductory
Track: Social Responsibility
Presenter: Jessie Wusthoff, Clover Health

While many companies understand the need to implement legal components related to disability in the workplace, few are confident in approaching the human side of these conversations on disability.
During this webinar, we will introduce different social models around disability and understand how they show up in daily work life. We’ll focus on creating a safe space to understand how these models impact our personal points of view and begin to explore better ways of framing conversations around disability in the workplace.

Prayer Service of Lament and Commemoration

submitted by dames@augsburg.edu

We invite the Augsburg community to a virtual prayer service led by Augsburg University’s Campus to mark the anniversary of the Mother Emanuel AME Church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina. It was on June 17, five years ago, when a young white man – who was a member of a church in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – came to the historic black church, Mother Emanuel, sat with church folks in a bible study for an hour, and then began shooting. Rev. Babette Chatman and Rev. Justin Lind-Ayres lead a litany of confession and lament remembering these nine lives lost and the pain and heartache caused by the evils of racism and white supremacy. https://youtu.be/vkRTjFzUeY4
