Catherina Kipper, URGO’s Prehealth Professions Specialist, will be returning to the University of MN, having accepted a position as an Assistant Director of Advising in the College of Liberal Arts. In the seven plus years that Catherina worked at Augsburg she established a stellar prehealth science advising program and assisted countless students and alums with their applications and interviews to various prehealth science programs. She also served as the advisor to the newly created and active Pre-Dentistry and Pre-PA clubs.
Students sought Catherina out because she provided honest and thorough advice about how to be a competitive prehealth applicant. She is particularly gifted as a writing coach, painstakingly reading multiple drafts of statements and secondary applications, always helping students find their own voices. Because of her commitment and knowledge, more Augsburg students and alums gained admissions to prehealth programs and more of them had multiple offers.
All of her staff and faculty colleagues immediately noticed her professionalism, deep knowledge of the health professions, dedication to student advancement, cross cultural competency and generous nature. As the only other staff member in URGO, Catherina accepted multiple responsibilities to ensure that the office functioned with a high quality of service–always her standard.
We thank her for her dedicated service to Augsburg and wish her the best in her new position.
Please join us on Thursday, July 7th in Hagfors 101 for cake and well wishes from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.

Staged readings of Ukrainian plays written since the Russian invasion. A fundraiser for Ukraine.
Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February, theaters across the globe have been providing staged readings of Ukrainian plays to show solidarity with the Ukrainian people and raise awareness of their plight.

With the MFA Program scheduled to be in attendance, only 35 tickets are available to the public.
For a full description of the event and to reserve tickets, please visit the event page on Eventbrite.
