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 email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.**

Interfaith at Augsburg invites you to join in reflecting upon how various religious and secular traditions call for our engagement in loving and serving the neighbor, working for healing, justice, peace and mercy, and the care of creation in a divided and often distrustful nation and world.
Farhan Latif, President of the El-Hibri Foundation, will moderate a conversation with:
Imam Makram El-Amin, Masjid An-Nur in Minneapolis
Professor Lori Brandt Hale, chair of Augsburg University’s Department of Religion and Philosophy
Rabbi Rabbi Arielle LeKach-Rosenberg, Assistant Rabbi, Shir Tikvah Congregation in Minneapolis
Following the presentations we will hear from student respondents, and there will be time for Q&A.
Farhan Latif is a philanthropic leader, social entrepreneur and cross sector mobilizer on minority inclusion. He is the President of the El-Hibri Foundation, focused on cross sector approaches to foster inclusion across religious and political divides.
Imam Makram El-Amin has worked for more than two decades as a religious and community leader, firmly rooted in the principle of our inherent human dignity. Imam El-Amin leads Al Maa’uun (Neighborly Needs) Community Outreach Services that addresses food insecurity, affordable housing, career services, and mentoring.
Lori Brandt Hale is Professor and Chair of Religion and Philosophy at Augsburg University, where she has taught since 1998. Brandt Hale has devoted her academic career both to teaching and to studying the life and legacy of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
