submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

The Faculty Development Committee (FDC) at Augsburg has been working on a “Faculty Balance” project for over a year so that the FDC can provide resources and advocate for things that the FDC can do to help make faculty work more sustainable now and in the future.

The information collected will be completely anonymous and will be used only by the FDC to help us focus our work. We hope to have results mostly analyzed by April and will report out then via A-mail. Thank you in advance for your time! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jennifer L. Bankers-Fulbright at bankers@augsburg.edu or ctl@augsburg.edu.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Auggie Basics Housing is designed to address the needs of students who are experiencing housing instability. The purpose of the program is to provide a bridge for students whose housing is not stable as they seek to identify a permanent solution.

Students accepted into Auggie Basics Housing will live on campus without cost to the student.

If the student secures permanent housing elsewhere, they will be released from the program and the spot will be offered to another student.

Students are not required to have a meal plan if they are selected for Auggie Basics Housing, including those placed into buildings that require one.

ELIGIBILITY FOR PROGRAM:
To be eligible for Auggie Basics Housing, students must be returning students and not receiving other housing aid from the University. Incoming first-year and transfer students are not eligible to apply.

Students may apply for housing either for the summer term and/or for the academic year. Students must reapply each academic year, and may be part of the program for up to two academic years. Being chosen for Auggie Basics Housing one year does not guarantee participation in future years.
