submitted by krajewsk@augsburg.edu

In the fall of 2020 Augsburg received a grant from the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund (GEER) to provide technology resources to students and faculty in need with a particular focus on “students and faculty who are indigenous or people of color; low-income; or disabled. A broader target population is all students and faculty at Augsburg University.”

Students can just come to the library and check out the items as priority has already been given to the grant focus population.

Farewell Wishes for Laura Swanson Lindahl

submitted by jendra@augsburg.edu

Laura Swanson Lindahl, director of marketing, will be leaving the shared services marketing and communication team that serves Augsburg University and Luther Seminary on January 18. She will be taking on a new role as director of marketing and communication at Metro State University in St. Paul. Laura has served Augsburg for nearly a decade, and the seminary since the shared services agreement began in 2017. At her request and due to the pandemic, there won’t be a large in-person farewell gathering. Instead, I invite colleagues to submit their congratulations and well wishes using the Google Form below. The responses will be compiled for her to enjoy on her last day.
