As part of our cyber insurance requirements, we will be doing a phishing simulation for employees (faculty and staff) during the month of August. Since this is the first time we’ve done such a simulation in 10 years we wanted to let folks know it is coming.
Along with this phishing simulation (to be done twice a year) we will be doing cybersecurity education twice a year as well – both part of cyber insurance requirements. We have a new provider for cybersecurity education which has current and relevant content for higher education. These topics are useful in our personal lives as well as we need to protect our personal information too.

Greetings Faculty and Staff!
A new semester is just around the corner, and luckily we are expecting NEW international students to join us this Fall Semester—representing countries like South Korea, Ethiopia, China, Egypt, South Africa and Norway to name a few!
And guess what? We are almost back to normal numbers for international students: 18 new incoming degree seekers, 5 transfer students, and about 11 exchange students. AMAZING!
As we collaboratively welcome this group, we plan for different experiences including a dinner potentially hosted by you—our faculty and staff members—in your home.
These events create a space for our new students to connect directly with members of our community, AND the dinner provides a time for you to learn about the incoming international students and their goals at Augsburg. It’s really a win-win situation!
Here are the details:
Date: Wednesday, August 24, 2022
Time: Pick up at 5 p.m. with a return to campus around 7 p.m.
We ask that our hosts pick up students from campus and return them once dinner is completed.
COVID status: ALL the new international students coming from abroad are required to follow the CDC and MDH guidelines (see more information in the form).
