To kick off the new academic year IN PERSON, CTL is hosting the Back-to-School Workshops on Wednesday, August 25th and Thursday, August 26th (see program and RSVP form below). The goal of these Back-to-School workshops is to primarily focus on “just-in-time” topics that can be immediately put to use in your upcoming Fall courses. Workshops and sessions will be held in Hagfors (rooms TBD). Unless otherwise indicated, all sessions and workshops are open to and welcome all Augsburg faculty and staff.
Please be sure to RSVP for sessions you are interested in as soon as possible – you can change your selections later! Strict room capacities will be enforced and some sessions may fill. The RSVP link is included at the top of the CTL Back-to-School Workshops Program.
If you have any questions or need accommodations for this event, please contact CTL Director Jennifer L. Bankers-Fulbright at email@example.com.

As faculty and staff come back to campus, we wanted to make people aware of some steps to prevent the headache of being locked out of your account when you arrive. If you have not been on campus recently, please check out the following link before coming back to campus. As always, if you need further assistance, please reach out to your LFC.
Welcome incoming first years and returning students! My name is Ilhan Ahmed and I’m the new president for the Pan-Afrikan Student Union. I believe I speak for everyone when I say the pandemic has robbed us of our college experiences and for some, it has taken much more than just an experience. PASU not only understands but is also prepared to assist our incoming first-year students and returning students in adjusting to this new life. With that being said, we’re looking for three passionate students who can help accomplish this goal. Event Coordinator, Treasurer, and First-Year Representative are the three positions available on the PASU board. Please fill out the PASU Board Application if you’re interested. Keep an eye out for upcoming events!

Created by Interfaith Fellow ’17-’19 Wendy Goldberg, to help Augsburg know about this big season for Jews in our community.
We are entering the Jewish High Holy Day season, which runs for the month of Tishrei this year from Monday evening, Sept. 6 – Sept. 29, including Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot.
For college students, being away from home for these holidays can highlight the homesickness and the yearning to be in the nest, and for some, quite the opposite. If you celebrate Christmas, imagine staying on campus while most students return home. If you celebrate Ramadan, this season is similar to that month of observance.
How to be an ally: We encourage you to have conversations with your Jewish students and colleagues about their observances. If you are aware that students or colleagues are Jewish, it would likely be welcomed to ask them how they observe the holidays and what they mean to them. You could also move important meetings or events away from Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
2021 dates for these holidays:
Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Sept. 6 and ends at nightfall on Sept. 8. Some American Jews celebrate for one day, others for two.
Yom Kippur begins an hour before sundown on Sept. 15 and ends at nightfall on Sept. 16. After a 25-hour fast and being in synagogue services, the feast goes into the evening, like an Eid meal. This is the holiest of holy days and for those observing, they would not do work for these 25 hours.
Sukkot begins at sundown on Mon, Sept. 20, and the first two days are considered holy days where some Jews don’t work, use electricity, etc. Sukkot ends at sundown on Sept. 28 for some, and Sept. 29 for others.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Wendy Goldberg: firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-386-1191. To connect students with Jewish events or community contact Rivka Buchbinder email@example.com of Minnesota Hillel-Augsburg or University of Minnesota Hillel, 612-379-4026 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hi! My name is Bella and I am a second year student here at Augsburg studying graphic design. I am currently trying to find personal care assistants to help me in my day to day life here on campus. This would include getting me ready for the day, helping me get set up for class and assisting me around campus. I am currently looking for people who would want to work some hours during the Fall semester! If you are a pre-med or nursing student, this is a great opportunity to get experience with patient care. Plus, you get to be paid to have fun!
I really enjoy getting coffee, watching Netflix, drawing, and painting. I consider all my assistants as my friends and if you work for me, you are guaranteed a good time! If you are interested, please text me at: 612-345-2855 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope you will join!
