submitted by

Hello, my name is Grayson Harris, and I am an incoming Second-Year Student. I am the Chair of the Chartering & Commissioning Committees for the 2022-23 academic year; I want to invite you to apply to one of these Committees (Chartering/Commissioning). These two respected committees are sponsored by the Augsburg Day Student Government.

Do you want to get involved on campus for this upcoming school year? If so, this is an excellent opportunity for you to be involved; by participating in one of these respected Committees as a student, you will learn how to collaborate with other members to get things accomplish; executing plans is key to completing our goals. Once you’re committed to being on the Committee, you are required to attend the weekly meetings when it’s necessary. This involvement is also an excellent way to enhance your resume. I hope you will consider applying for one of these respected Committee(s).

Chartering Committee is responsible for:
– Approve or Disapprove of the New Student Organization that wishes to be recognized by Augsburg University.
– Review all Chartered Day Student Organizations to assess if they have not met all the criteria for recognition by the Senate.

Commissioning Committee is responsible for:
– Assisting in the commissioning process for the Student Organizations.
– Review the Student Organization, recommend any necessary changes to the Augsburg Day Student Organizations, and Approve or Disapprove the application before submitting it to the Senate.
