submitted by nguyentt@augsburg.edu

A new semester is just around the corner, and luckily we are expecting new international students to join us this fall—representing countries like Malaysia, Nigeria, Italy, China, Norway, and Bangladesh to name a few!

Our office, the International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS), is looking for faculty and staff members who are interested in hosting our new international students for a dinner off-campus in your home.

Here are the details:
Date: Wednesday, August 25, 2021
Time: Pick up at 5 p.m. with a return to campus around 7 p.m.

We ask that our hosts pick up students from campus and return them once dinner is completed. The new incoming group will consist of 20+ international students.

COVID status: All the new international students coming from abroad are required to follow the CDC and MDH guidelines, with a required 7-day quarantine (unvaccinated students), and COVID testing on day 3-5 upon arrival.
All students will show proof of a negative COVID test prior to traveling to the United States (tested 72 hours before departure), proof of recovery and/or proof of vaccination.

Any students needing quarantine, will have ended this period on August 25. And will have been offered to receive their first dose of the vaccine.

Forum Webinar, Using Innovative Simulation Strategies to Dismantle Systemic Racism

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: August 19, 2021 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Presenters: Samreen Vora, Children’s Minnesota  |  Brittany Dahlen, Children’s Minnesota
Cost: Free

Register at: https://forumworkplaceinclusion.org/webinars/using-innovative-simulation-strategies-to-dismantle-systemic-racism/

Many organizations are flocking to implement implicit bias training and other activities to bring to light the structural racism present in our organizations. Although implicit bias training is the first step in creating awareness, it is important to get to the next step of behavior change. Implementation of bias mitigation strategies can be challenging to achieve. Simulation-Based Training (SBT) can be the bridge between creating awareness and moving to action.
This session will delve into SBT and opportunities for partnering with equity and inclusion training to promote health equity. The webinar will discuss how deliberate practice of both recognition of bias and implementation of strategies to mitigate bias can be integrated into implicit bias training. Real examples of the partnership between SBT and equity and inclusion training will be provided and participants will have an opportunity to begin developing facilitation skills for leading SBT deliberate practice conversations

Learning Outcomes
Describe the simulation strategies applicable to promoting health equity
Integrate implicit bias mitigation strategies into simulations
Apply equity and inclusion facilitation skills to simulation facilitation
