Apply for Mayo Innovation Scholars Program

submitted by shafer@augsburg.edu

Applications for Augsburg’s Mayo Innovations Scholar Program are now available on the URGO website! This program is highly competitive and is primarily designed for juniors and seniors.

What is MISP?
In the process of conducting research, Mayo Clinic scientists have developed new products that may be marketable. These products are submitted to the Mayo Clinic Office of Intellectual Property (OIP) for a thorough investigation of marketability. The OIP has a significant backlog of products to be investigated. One of the backlogged products or inventions is assigned to each MISP team for investigative research and formal presentation at Mayo Clinic.

Augsburg’s team will consist of an MBA student, 3 undergraduate science students, 1 undergraduate business/economics student, 2 Augsburg faculty, and a Licensing Manager from the Mayo Clinic OIP. The team will work together to understand the science and applications of the project or innovation and analyze the market potential. Each undergraduate student on the team will receive $1,000. Teams will begin work during October and the final presentations will be in March.

To Apply:
Applications can be found on the URGO website (www.augsburg.edu/urgo). Completed applications must be submitted to urgo@augsburg.edu by Tuesday, September 27th. If you have any questions about the program, please contact us at urgo@augsburg.edu, 612-330-1441, or stop in at Hagfors 101.

Receiving Packages

submitted by longj@augsburg.edu

As companies like Amazon and Target have switched to using flex drivers to deliver their packages we seeing packages delivered all over campus instead of to the Shipping/Receiving Department. We have been trying to fix the issue of packages being left in random places around campus. If you see a package delivered to someplace other then Shipping/Receiving please let us know or bring it in so we can get it to the correct person.

To help the flex drivers find the correct building please use the Christensen Center’s building address when ordering instead of the general campus address. Please make sure you have your full name on the order.

Your Name
720 22nd Ave South
Minneapolis, MN 5545

Thank you for your help in this matter.

submitted by jacobsn@augsburg.edu

The Augsburg Local team is thrilled to share our Catering Guide! Our aim with this project is to encourage the use of local- and BIPOC-owned caterers for smaller on-campus events (fewer than 25 people). This is a living document and we welcome your comments and suggestions.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please email augsburglocal@augsburg.edu. We’re excited to share this resource with the campus community and we hope you’ll use it when planning your next event!

[Augsburg Local is a campaign to leverage Augsburg’s purchasing power to support local businesses. The Augsburg Local campaign includes a variety of activities and strategies to intentionally connect locally owned, Black/Indigenous/People of Color (BIPOC) owned, and Femmes/Trans/Womxn (FTW) owned businesses to the economic benefits generated by both individual and institutional purchasing.]
