Happy 2021: All CTL Grants are Available Again

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

CTL is happy to announce that our budget now allows us to restore funding for participation/attendance OR presentation at conferences (we had previously been restricting funding to presenting faculty only). Please see the CTL website for application requirements, funding available, and information about other funding available for professional development.

Application forms are temporarily down and will GO LIVE on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13th. As is always the case, proposals will be evaluated and approved by CTL, and funding will be allocated until all funds have been awarded.

If you participated in/attended a conference between June and Dec 2020, paid for it with your personal money, and were NOT reimbursed, you may retroactively submit an application for consideration for reimbursement. However, because these conferences were not pre-approved, we may only be able to cover partial costs or none at all.

Also, up to $150 can be reimbursed for Professional Memberships. There is a separate application form for this posted on the page linked below. *CTL cannot cover any fees for licensures/testing/certification/continuing education credits. The funds for memberships are a part of the $1,500 cap.

This announcement does not apply to union adjunct faculty members. Information regarding Adjunct Professional Development Grants can be found at https://inside.augsburg.edu/ctl/grants/professional-development-for-adjunct-union-members/.

** I usually respond very quickly to applications, however, some recent submissions on the new form were missed. I have fixed this issue, but if you ever have to wait more than a day for a response, please email ctl@augsburg.edu or maherk@augsburg.edu.**

Level: Intermediate

The announcement that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris won the electoral and popular vote for the next US President is, for many, a highly-awaited and anticipated moment. For others, it’s an acute loss.
Our most important work, right now, is to put in motion the practices and programs to create cohesion, build community and help leaders reach across difference.
That said, it’s become dangerous to talk about politics at work even though the political divide now more than ever inhibits positive connection, at work, at home, and in our communities. This divide threatens progress towards more diverse and equitable workplaces.
Now, amidst this divisiveness, is the opportunity for workplaces to double down and equip their leaders on how to bridge the divide. There is no time to waste.

Learning Outcomes
Be clear on why diversity, equity, and inclusion work matters, especially right now
Push your inclusive leadership skills for today’s unique needs
Explore how to narrow divides and speak to divergent groups

Forum Webinar – Eight Strategies for Creating a More Inclusive Volunteer Program

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: December 17, 2020 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Level: Introductory
Track: D&I Strategy
Presenter: Lisa Joyslin, Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration
Cost: Free

Many organizations struggle to engage volunteers who reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of the communities they serve. In response to this issue, the Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration (MAVA) recently embarked on a research study which resulted in the development of a set of eight strategies for creating a more inclusive volunteer program within nonprofit and government organizations. These strategies serve as a starting point for leaders who are seeking concrete next steps to better engage volunteers from racially diverse and immigrant communities.
In this interactive session, you’ll learn about the eight strategies, share your own experiences, and create an action plan for launching a more inclusive volunteer program within your own organization.

Learning Outcomes
Identify the barriers that racially and ethnically diverse communities face when trying to volunteer
Learn about concrete strategies for creating a more inclusive volunteer program
Create an action plan to determine next steps for inclusive volunteer engagement at your organization
