Questions Regarding Faculty Budget Cuts

submitted by pike@augsburg.edu

The Budget Working Group (Haaland, Devers, Kaivola, Chamberlin, Aoki and Pike) will continue its efforts through the end of spring semester. Faculty are encouraged to submit questions to the group as often as they arise. Each week Senate President Andy Aoki includes responses to these questions in the report sent directly to all faculty members. As difficult decisions are ahead, faculty input and questions are valuable.

Auggie Basics Housing – Application Open for Summer 2022 and 2022-2023 Academic Year

submitted by grewe@augsburg.edu

Augsburg University is accepting applications for Auggie Basics Housing for summer 2022 and the 2022-23 academic year.

DEADLINE:
Monday, April 4, 2022 at 5pm

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. Regardless of when students enter the program, the housing commitment will cover the full academic year if needed. If the student secures permanent housing elsewhere, they will be released from the program and the spot will be offered to another student.

MEAL PLANS:
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.

APPLICATION LINK: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSda_PwCjMezO63enNBljbudyjmAvAVAQrrCvDALOAxl5aw3og/viewform

QUESTIONS?

Augsburg University Campus Ministry invites you to join us on Tuesday, March 22, at 10:00 am as Augsburg University welcomes Pastors Ingrid Rasmussen and Angela Khabeb for the sixth annual Fosdick Lecture in Preaching.

Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, located just off of Lake Street in the 3rd Precinct, found itself at the heart of the explosive response to the brutal killing of George Floyd and the centuries of trauma that preceded his death. During the months that followed the uprising, the church responded by distributing donated food, diapers, toiletries, plywood for boarding up broken windows, cleaning supplies, and tools to the community. This remained a primary part of Holy Trinity’s work throughout the summer and fall of 2020. Pastors Rasmussen and Khabeb will share their insights on preaching during this time of crisis and reflect on how these experiences continue to shape their understanding of theology and ministry.

Come, join the conversation!

10:00 am Welcome, Lecture and Q&A
11:30 am Chapel Worship

Chapel: Emmy Kegler

submitted by dames@augsburg.edu

Join us in Hoversten Chapel at 11:30 am to hear Pastor Emmy Kegler, Pastor at Grace Lutheran Church, Minneapolis, preach as part of a series this week on Presence in Proclamation: A Series on Female-Identifying Leaders Who Participate in Proclamation. The idea is in part from Dr. Bantum’s symposium at Augsburg last fall when he talked about presence, saying that Mary gave the first Christian sermon and that God became present in such a way that we had to listen to her and acknowledge her, and that God wanted to learn how to be human and present from her. So, how does this show up in our world today?
