Public Safety is currently experiencing a temporary shortage of Faculty/Staff parking tags. More tags have been ordered and are scheduled to arrive in early September. Until the new tags arrive those applying for parking privileges will be issued a temporary tag that will grant them the same access as the regular tag. If you’re on the waiting list, received temporary parking tags, or bought a fall permit but wanted a year, you will be contacted when the new tags arrive. We apologize for any inconvenience this temporary shortage may create. The current shortage of parking tags does not affect the number of available spaces.

Beginning on Monday, August 29, all Augsburg Minneapolis Campus buildings will only be accessible by fob and will no longer be open to the public, with the exception of Christensen Center. This is a pilot program in response to a perceived increase of crime around campus as well as a couple of major incidents that occurred on campus during the Spring ‘22 semester. If you will be on the Minneapolis campus and do not currently have a fob, you can request a fob through the Access Request Form on the Public Safety website (link is below), or stop by the Public Safety office located in the Urness/Mortensen lobby for more urgent requests.
If you are hosting a public event on campus, let your University Events Coordinator know and they will work with Public Safety to adjust the appropriate building schedules. If you need a building to open to the public but are not working with University Events, email email@example.com with the requested date(s), time(s), and reason(s) for having the building open to the public.
The Department of Public Safety is also requesting feedback about the changes in building access and we will be reviewing the pilot throughout the Fall ‘22 semester. If you would like to provide feedback about the changes in building access, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include “Building Access Feedback” in the subject line.
Augsburg University Music announces two unique vocal ensemble opportunities open to the Augsburg community.
For students, faculty, and staff:
The Augsburg/Twin Cities Global Harmony Project is open to students, staff, faculty, and community members. Available to students for course credit, this choir assumes no music-reading ability. The core of the curriculum is shared with our community cohort, open to anyone in the greater Metro area within driving distance of a weekly, joint rehearsal. This choir receives direct instruction from culture-bearers sharing their vocal harmony traditions from many continents. Our artist-instructors, teaching via the oral method, have taught us in regional styles from Appalachia, Bosnia, Corsica, Cuba, the Republic of Georgia, Iran, Madagascar, Nigeria, Quebec, Siberia, South Africa, Sweden, Ukraine, and the traditional Black gospel churches of the United States.
For singers with a firm base in music-literacy skills, the Augsburg/Mirandola Chamber Collective course brings students into weekly side-by-side study, rehearsal, and performance collaboration with the professional chamber artists of The Mirandola Ensemble. Students enrolled in this ensemble will also perform the international repertoire at the core of the Augsburg/Twin Cities Global Harmony Project.
Placement hearings will be held August 31–September 2. For details, visit the Music Department website or send questions to Dr. Kristina Boerger: email@example.com.
