Facilities Updates: Summer in the Residence Halls, New Turf

submitted by farrisr@augsburg.edu

Five and a half weeks of summer camps and conferences kick off this week with wrestling camps and SOAR. Getting ready to welcome summer guests to the residence halls is a team effort across departments. Custodial and maintenance staff clean and fix up rooms after spring move-out, prepare spaces for summer residents, and stock cleaning supplies in Urness and Anderson. Residence Life and DPS staff organize keys and fobs. University Events staff collaborate with all these teams, prepare welcome kits, distribute keys and fobs to campers, and partner with Facilities to train student workers on OSHA regulations as part of their hospitality role for summer events. Kudos to everyone involved in making these summer programs a success!

Elsewhere on campus, new artificial turf has been unveiled on Edor Nelson Field following a five-week replacement project. With year-round availability thanks to the dome, the field is one of the most heavily used turf surfaces in the metro area. The new turf will benefit the five teams that share the field (football, softball, women’s lacrosse, and men’s and women’s soccer); Health, Physical Education, and Exercise Science classes; and community members and groups like the semi-pro Minneapolis City SC, who inaugurated the new surface last week. Notice a lot of bulging bags in Lot L during the project? Athletics partnered with FieldTurf to reuse the infill and rubber foam from the previous installation in 2013, which lowered the environmental impact of the replacement.

Faculty Applications for Travel This Summer Due Wednesday, June 15

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

Because of the temporary reduction in full-time faculty professional development funds allocated to Augsburg’s Faculty Development Program (aka CTL), the Program has created a grant review procedure and policy to ensure equitable funding for 2022-2023. (see link to full policy on the CTL website below)

The biggest change for faculty are the new application deadlines. To ensure equitable distribution of grant funding, the FDC will be reviewing grants in bulk four times during the year. The deadline for your grant application depends primarily on WHEN you will be traveling/having expenses. Please note that you may submit a grant application at any time before your preferred deadline; however grants will not be reviewed until the deadline closes.

Round 1 Deadline: June 15, 2022 (for travel/expenses June – Aug 2022)
Round 2 Deadline: July 1, 2022 (for travel/expenses Sep – Nov 2022)
Round 3 Deadline: October 1, 2022 (for travel/expenses Dec 2022 – Feb 2023)
Round 4 Deadline: January 1, 2023 (for travel/expenses Mar – May 2023)

There is additional and more specific information on the CTL website (see link below) which should answer most of your questions! Please contact CTL (ctl@augsburg.edu) if you have any questions about this temporary policy or would like more information.
