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 (email@example.com) if you have any questions about this temporary policy or would like more information.

Passionate about seeing students succeed? Whether you’re a former debater or new to the activity, you’d be a great fit for our Advocates for Debate Board! bit.ly/MNUDLAdvocatesBoard
The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University is seeking professionals of all ages to join our Advocates for Debate initiative.
The goal of Advocates for Debate is to bring together people who are interested in supporting the MNUDL by:
• Connecting with members of the MN Speech and Debate community through networking happy hours, lunches, and a shared membership list, with a goal of creating opportunities for cross-generational & multi-regional connections. We want debate alums from all schools from every generation to know one another!
• Tackling part of the MNUDL strategic plan that is of interest to the members; examples could include: connecting with MNUDL alums, growing partnerships with schools and school districts, and creating corporate or law firm partnerships.
• Fundraising to support the MNUDL through a personal donation as well as using your network to support debate. This could include employer matched gifts, writing a letter of support for a grant from an employer, corporate sponsorship, paid volunteer time, and more.
• Sharing their Time: You are welcome to join with whatever level of engagement you can bring. We plan to have a first organizational meeting via Zoom to plan for our first year and by joining, you get to help determine our plan. We will also plan for fun in-person happy hours here in the Twin Cities.
Please fill out our interest form if you’d like to learn more information! bit.ly/MNUDLAdvocatesBoard
