The Biology Department Greenhouse on the rooftop of the Hagfors Center is open to the Augsburg community on the first Thursday of the month.
Come see what’s new and in bloom, including the curious and smelly voodoo lily (Amorphophallus konjac), a perhaps even more pungent cousin to the fabled corpse flower!
The next First Thursday is this week, February 3, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. The greenhouse is located on the 4th floor of the Hagfors Center.

During the June 9, 2020, town hall for faculty and staff, President Pribbenow announced seven new equity initiatives born out of response to the murder of George Floyd and Augsburg’s renewed commitment to accelerate and expand upon our university’s efforts to promote equity and inclusion during a national moment of racial and social justice reawakening. One of these initiatives was the requirement of Augsburg faculty and staff to complete an annual anti-racism training.
Please note that there are two remaining opportunities for faculty and staff to attend this training and fulfill this requirement. The spring training opportunity will take place on Thu, Feb 17 at 3:30-7:00 p.m. via Zoom and the make-up May training opportunity will take place on Thu, May 12 at 2:30-6:00 p.m. via Zoom.

Although there have been gains in diversity across various healthcare sectors, leadership positions continue to be disproportionately held by White men. Understanding the impact that social determinants of health like racism and discrimination have on healthcare outcomes for Black women, it is bad business for them to be underrepresented at the decision and policy-making levels in healthcare. How do we solve this pervasive problem?
Join us as we share how the University of Chicago Medical Center (UCM) is leveraging a formal sponsorship program focused on increasing the representation of Black women at the senior leadership level. Also, participants will learn how UCM is using a formal sponsorship program – including critical conversations at the executive leadership level about the lived experience of Black women – to accelerate workplace culture transformation and advance healthcare equity. We will also explore how this may be applied in other organizations.
Learn how advancing more Black women to leadership roles in healthcare impacts health equity
Recognize sponsorship as an accelerator for career advancement and workplace culture transformation
Gain strategies for creating formal sponsorship programs for Black Women in your organization

On January 31, 2020, the Secretary of Health and Human Services determined that a public health emergency existed nationwide. In recognition of two years of the pandemic, we will hold space for grieving those we have lost and reflecting on the challenges and losses.
Following the service, the chapel space will be open for reflection and the campus pastors will be available for students or staff.
