Students: Check Your Email for Federal Grant Funding Information

submitted by burgessa@augsburg.edu

As a result of funding provided by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, funds are being disbursed to all students enrolled this fall semester. Emails were sent on Friday with information about how to access this funding.

Following guidance by the Department of Education, grant amounts were primarily determined by a student’s program type and their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from the FAFSA. We understand that students have experienced a multitude of disruptions in the midst of this pandemic, including financial distress. We hope this funding can provide some small relief during this challenging time.

In addition to this federal grant, we also want to remind students whose financial circumstances have changed that a special circumstance application for financial aid is available on the Student Financial Services website. Changed circumstances may include, but are not limited to, job loss, reduction of income, change to household size, one-time sources of income, etc.

Forum PDL, Engaging Religious Diversity in the Workplace

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: November 8, 2021 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm CST
Where: Online/Virtual Conference
Cost: $95
Presenters: Eboo Patel, Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC)  |  Farah Siddiqui, Salesforce  |  Megan Hughes Johnson, Interfaith Youth Core

This event is part of The Forum’s new Professional Development Labs learning series. More information below.

Americans encounter more religious diversity at work than in any other sphere of life, yet religion is too often left out of the diversity conversation. Many of us are uncomfortable talking about religion at work because we are afraid of offending our colleagues or wading into uncertain legal territory, but engaging religious diversity can lead to stronger team culture and better relationships with clients and consumers. Join Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) for a Professional Development Lab that will give you the chance to explore issues of religious identity and diversity at work, develop your interfaith skillset, and create an action plan for how you will engage religious and secular identity in your workplace.

Learning Outcomes
Learn why engaging religious diversity matters in the workplace
Identify concrete skills to engage religious diversity and enhance workplace culture
Create a customized action plan for how to engage religious diversity productively in your workplace
 
About The Forum’s Professional Development Labs
Professional Development Labs (PDLs) are half-day interactive learning experiences intended to develop professional competencies that support leaders in reaching the next level in their DEI leadership. Unlike traditional workshop sessions, PDLs will be goal oriented and include personal and professional action and accountability planning for next level leadership. PDLs will be offered synchronously in varying formats (in-person, hybrid or virtual) based on CDC convening recommendations.

All Saints Commemoration

submitted by dames@augsburg.edu

We will hold an All Saints service in chapel November 5 at 10:40 am. The custom of commemorating all of the saints of the church on a single day goes back at least to the third century. At this service we praise God for the saints who’ve gone before us, especially honoring ones who have been personally significant in our faith. We’ll also remember those who have died, especially in this past year. We celebrate and remember through song and prayer. Please submit names you would like included in the service to the campus ministry office by emailing Janice Dames at dames@augsburg.edu.
