Parking Restrictions Friday (October 7)

submitted by

Hello Everyone

On Friday (10/7), there is an All School Reunion taking place at Hagfors. With this event taking place, there will be some parking restrictions on 10/7. Please read through this very carefully:

1. By 3pm, all cars from 21st Ave & Lots D & A must be cleared
2. If any cars are in these spots by 3pm, they will be towed to Lot L at the owner’s expense. No exceptions
3. If you plan on attending the event, still park in Lot L. We are clearing the lots for those who are attending the event and not working with Augsburg as we are expecting quite a large turnout
4. There will continue to be A Mail postings and another email on Thursday with this information. We will also be posting ‘Warning Slips’ on cars in the lots. These Warnings aren’t actual violations and won’t be charged to your account.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email

Have a good Homecoming week

Two Workshops for Faculty Mentors (Advisors) on October 5

submitted by

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 no later than 11am the day of the session.

Paid Summer Program to Study Public Policy

submitted by

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 and reference your interest in PPIA before October 7 to set up a meeting to learn more.
