submitted by greenj@augsburg.edu

The Center for Teaching and Learning at Augsburg is seeking TWO faculty members to join the CTL Fellows program for a 2-year term (Sep 2021-Aug 2023). The group of six CTL fellows work closely with the Director of CTL, Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright, to plan, coordinate, and sometimes even host the teaching and learning programming offered to Augsburg faculty throughout the year. Each fellow receives a stipend of $500 per year as well as an additional $1000 in travel funds per year to attend additional teaching and learning focused conferences and bring ideas and information back to CTL.

The minimum qualifications for these two fellowship openings are that you must:
be a full-time faculty member at Augsburg (tenure-track or non-tenure track),
have at least an introductory knowledge of effective pedagogies at the undergraduate and/or graduate level, and
have completed the Augsburg University Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program (or are on track to complete it during the Fall 2021 semester)

If you are interested in applying for one of these positions, please complete this short form by Sunday, September 5.

If you have any questions about the position or a question about your qualifications, please contact Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright at bankers@augsburg.edu or ctl@augsburg.edu.

General Announcements

PASU Board Application

 

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!
