We have an opportunity to communicate with Gov. Tim Walz and our state legislators about the importance of helping college students by increasing funding for the State Grant program. These need-based grants help two in five Minnesota students going to college in the state, at both public and private nonprofit institutions. And here at Augsburg, 1,350 students receive these grants.
Now is the time to ask Minnesota policymakers to invest in college students and increase the size of these grants. The State Grant program, which provides need-based financial aid similar to the Pell Grant, is the only way that the State of Minnesota supports students at our institution and other private colleges throughout the state.
Through the Minnesota Private College Council’s advocacy system, Advocates for Minnesota Student Aid, you can easily send a message to the Governor and your legislators stating your support for increased funding for the State Grant program.
Please consider contacting your elected representatives. You can find out more and take action here: https://secure.everyaction.com/i81dzlByy0CKv2Ct1opqsg2.

Campus Ministry invites students to participate in an Alternative Spring Break experience March 15-19, 2021, offering the students an opportunity to look deeper at justice issues in the Twin Cities and surrounding area and engage in meaningful, relationship-centered volunteer work.
The justice issues will be examined through several experiences in the Twin Cities and reflection and sharing in order for participants to process their experience communally and individually. These experiences include:
Onsite work with Health Commons at Central Lutheran Church and in the Cedar Riverside clinic.
A presentation and activities by the University of MN Mapping Prejudice project, exploring housing inequity due to racial disparities.
A presentation and activities by the Lutheran Social Service of MN (LSS-MN) Advocacy team, providing practical and current information on ways to be advocates.
Activities are subject to change due to COVID-19 protocols.
For volunteer opportunities, students will partner with LSS-MN at Supported Living Homes (SLH), known as ‘group homes.’ SLH provides a family home setting to no more than 4 community members living with differing abilities.
Students will serve in small groups at several homes. Activities may include yard work, building maintenance, meal prep, and social activities alongside those who live in the home. Volunteer work will focus on the relational aspect of volunteering, rather than the actual jobs accomplished. Volunteer activities are designed to help volunteers and residents see one another as individuals rather than ‘other.’
This ASB has been approved to count as an Augsburg Experience. Please indicate on the registration form if you would like that option.
Cost: $25, including the required book & lunch each of the 5 days. Please fill out the registration form & turn in your fee to Janice Dames in the Campus Ministry office.

As part of the Augsburg University Equity Proposal, the Auggie Basics – Housing initiative is designed to address the needs of students who experience housing instability. The purpose of the program is to provide a bridge for students whose housing is not stable as they seek to identify a permanent solution.
Students accepted into the Auggie Basics Program will live on campus without cost to the student. Regardless of when students enter the program, the housing commitment will cover the full academic year if needed. If the student secures permanent housing elsewhere, they will be released from the program and the spot will be offered to another student. Summer housing may be an option. Students must reapply each academic year. Being chosen for the Auggie Basics program one year does not guarantee participation in future years.
To apply, please complete the application below. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com or call the Student Affairs office at 612 330 1160.
Please answer all of the following questions with as much detail as you are comfortable providing.
