Paid Summer Program to Study Public Policy

submitted by

Public Policy and International Affairs (PPIA) Junior Summer Institute is an intensive seven-week summer program that focuses on preparing students for careers as policy professionals, public administrators and other leadership roles in public service. The program was started to address the lack of diversity across the spectrum of professional public service, including government, nonprofits, public policy institutions, and international organizations. The purpose of the JSI Fellowship is to prepare students to obtain a Master’s or joint degree, in public policy, public administration, international affairs, or a related field.

Selected participants spend the summer at one of six participating universities (University of Minnesota, Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, Princeton, University of Washington or University of Michigan) where they take courses, learn from top leaders in the field and build their professional skills. Students must have junior or senior status and be planning to graduate between December 2022 and August 2023. To be competitive for this opportunity, students should have a 3.5 GPA or above. There is no cost to attend and participants receive a stipend.

Contact URGO at and reference your interest in PPIA before October 1 to set up a meeting to learn more

September 15 ED Talk: “How I Learned to Love Integrated Course Design and Why you Should, Too”

submitted by

ED Talks are back! Tara Mader and Jennifer Bankers-Fulbright (ICD Workshop Leaders) will introduce you to (or remind you about) Integrated Course Design (ICD). ICD is an all-inclusive pedagogical mind-set that we’ve sometimes described as “advanced professor-ing”. Come see why we’re so passionate about this idea and how you can get paid to learn about and design your course using this system.

CTL will offer ED Talks (based on the concept of TED Talks) before each faculty meeting from 3:10-3:30pm over Zoom. This year’s theme is “The Future of the Professoriate at Augsburg”, and 2021-2022 Ed talks will be framed under this broad theme that speaks to our “new normal” and beyond.

Call for Male-Identifying Actors for Theater Department Production

submitted by

Character Description:

GUS: artist, white gay man, up and coming painter, Tanner’s boyfriend

TANNER: English teacher, Improv actor, Asian/Asian-American gay man, Gus’ boyfriend

White by James Ijames

Plot: When his friend becomes the head curator at the prestigious museum, Gus is sure his break to be a renowned painter has arrived. However, things do not turn out as he hoped. He asks his boyfriend Tanner to connect him with Vanessa, an actress from improv class. Together they will create a masterpiece for the museum’s “New America” exhibit that will, hopefully, bring them to fame. “White” is a bold comedy using art to address head-on current issues of race, representation, gender, and sexuality.

Content Disclosure:
• There is intimacy (simulated and distanced) between Gus and Tanner
• There are microaggressions related to race, as this is one of the subjects the play directly addresses.
• For questions about this or to schedule an audition, email:

*The Theater Department requires Covid vaccination in order to participate in
the Season productions due to the amount of exposure and physical proximity

NetSPI Presentation: Have you Thought About a Career in Ethical Hacking?

submitted by

Friday September 17, 2021 4pm – 5pm (CDT)

Dina Soulek, Senior Recruiter | NetSPI
Marissa Allen, Security Consultant | NetSPI
Graduate of Normandale Community College and Augsburg University

Have you ever thought about being an ethical hacker but didn’t know where to begin? NetSPI hires people for our 6-month immersive training program where we typically hire recent college grads or folks looking to make a career change. This 6-month program training program comes along with competitive pay and benefits typical with all full-time employees at NetSPI (including health, dental, vision, etc.). The training program is staged as an extension of the classroom – where we’ve had groups as small as 4 and as large as 16 learn all things pentesting. We typically gear the program towards web app pentesting with hopes of setting a strong foundation for our pentesters to learn and grow into different areas across our service lines. Once they reach the 6 months mark, they are reviewed via a lab to be considered for a promotion to a client facing penetration tester.

In this presentation we will share who we are (NetSPI), introduce ourselves and what we do, portray a day in the life as a pentester, and what growth at our organization looks like. There will be an interactive portion of the presentation and the opportunity to ask questions!

For more information about NetSPI:

Register in advance for this virtual presentation:

The zoom link for the virtual event will be sent to all registrants prior to the event.
