Farewell to Hli Vang

submitted by

It is with a heavy yet proud heart that I announce that Hli Vang will be leaving Augsburg University on November 1 for a fabulous new opportunity at the Minnesota Department of Human Services. In Hli’s 8 years at Augsburg she has been an integral part of the development and growth of the Multicultural Life Department and has been an incredible advisor and mentor to student organizations and students during her tenure. Additionally, Hli was able to successfully keep multicultural life student services afloat with only a two-person department spanning the first year and a half of Covid and now has emerged as an amazing leader to the brand new Multicultural Life staff. She has also been instrumental in helping me reimagine an updated vision and mission for the Multicultural Life Department. Quite simply, Hli will be greatly missed.

Hli rather not have a formal goodbye gathering, but welcomes anyone who would like to stop by her office and wish her well before she goes!

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to come to our Augsburg Psychology research laboratory for 4 sessions over the course of one month. The sessions include an initial orientation meeting and three sessions focused on one of two skills-building programs (you will be randomly assigned to one of the two–like a flip of a coin). Both programs involve mini-informational videos as well as experiential activities for you to complete. We will also have you complete a few personality measures. You will be assigned a peer coach who will work with you as progress through the study and guide you through the study components. 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.

To participate, please complete this participant inquiry form:

The researchers conducting this study are part of the Identity and Well-being Research Lab at Augsburg University ( or 612-656-6560), directed by Dr. Alex Ajayi, Assistant Professor of Psychology (E-mail:, Phone: 612-330-1146).
