Two Workshops for Faculty Mentors (Advisors) October 3 and 5

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

Informed mentoring/advising of our students can be critical to their success, on-time graduation, and achieving their academic goals. The Degree Audit we’ve been using since 2021 is designed to help students and their faculty mentors better and more effectively communicate with each other about university and discipline-based requirements specific to each student as well as documentation of the student’s progression toward graduation.

In response to faculty requests, the Registrar’s Office Graduation Team is pleased to offer two sessions to help faculty learn more about the Degree Audit and how to use it as a tool for mentoring/advising students. Faculty may attend one or both workshops, and should RSVP planned attendance to one or both by sending an email to graduation@augsburg.edu no later than 2pm the day of the session.

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.

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.

Each of the sessions will last approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Finally, we will check in one last time 3-months after the study is over for a brief online survey.

Participants will receive up to $35 for their participation. $5 for each of the first three sessions, and $10 for both the fourth session and the 3 month follow-up. Alternatively, Augsburg University Psychology students will receive up to $25 and 4 research credits.
