Paid Summer Program to Study Public Policy

submitted by pearsong@augsburg.edu

Public Policy and International Affairs (PPIA) Junior Summer Institute is an intensive seven-week summer program that focuses on preparing students for careers as policy professionals, public administrators and other leadership roles in public service. The program was started to address the lack of diversity across the spectrum of professional public service, including government, nonprofits, public policy institutions, and international organizations. The purpose of the JSI Fellowship is to prepare students to obtain a Master’s or joint degree, in public policy, public administration, international affairs, or a related field.

Selected participants spend the summer at one of six participating universities (University of Minnesota, Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, Princeton, University of Washington or University of Michigan) where they take courses, learn from top leaders in the field and build their professional skills. Students must have junior or senior status and be planning to graduate between December 2023 and August 2024. To be competitive for this opportunity, students should have a 3.5 GPA or above. There is no cost to attend and participants receive a stipend.

Application Due Date; November 1, 2022.

Contact URGO at urgo@augsburg.edu and reference your interest in PPIA before October 1 to set up a meeting to learn more.

Eligibility and Benefits

Apply for Mayo Innovation Scholars Program

submitted by pearsong@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 $1,500. 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, 612-330-1337, or stop in at Hagfors 101.

Changes in Central Services

submitted by longj@augsburg.edu

With the 2022-23 school year we have some changes to the Central Services. We are going down to a three-person staff:

Billy Callen – Copy Center
Jeni Long – Mail Room/Site Lead
Cody Hua – Shipping/Receiving

With the change in staffing levels we need to change the print project lead time to 24-hours. Please be sure to call the Copy Center (612-330-1054) before submitting anything needed sooner. The smoothest process to having your print job completed in time is to submit it using the Augsburg Copy Request system, https://sites.augsburg.edu/centralservices/copy-center-costs/.

Printer support calls/paper request may now take up to 3 hours for Central Services to have someone free to come and look at it.

Ordering 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

Minneapolis, MN 5545

Thank you for your help in this matter.
