We are thrilled to have already raised $2,656 — 29% of our goal!
For Give to the Max Day this year, we are raising funds for two important programs: The Augsburg Campus Cupboard and our Cedar-Riverside food justice initiatives.
Augsburg University has, over the past decade, become a school that serves a student body that is more diverse and lower-income than our neighboring state schools, and where the burden of food insecurity on students is significantly affecting their capacity to benefit from the studies in which they are investing so much of their familial resources.
The Campus Cupboard is open four days per week to all Augsburg students and recent alumni. There are no item limits; students can take as much food as they need for themselves and their families. In 2019, an average of 50 students visited the Campus Cupboard to pick up free groceries each week. In 2022, that average increased to 220 students per week. We regularly receive feedback from our students that the groceries we provide make a huge difference for their families’ ability to access high-quality, healthy foods. Many students and their families in the Twin Cities Metro Area now see this service as a key piece of meeting their basic food needs.
In order to expand this work, we are seeking funds to purchase culturally appropriate food items for our diverse student population. Because our program operates on a small budget, we rely primarily on recovered food items, which limits choice and thus our ability to meet students’ specific needs.
A $30 donation provides one grocery bag with culturally-appropriate foods for an Auggie. Your donation will make a significant difference in our ability to meet the growing and diverse food needs of Augsburg’s student body and our neighbors in Cedar Riverside. Thank you so much to our incredible supporters who have already given generous donations!
If you are able to support this vital work, you can make a donation here.

Sylvia Ann Sabo (nee Lee), 85, passed away on October 26, 2022.
Sylvia attended St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN, and became a registered nurse. Her close connection to Augsburg began when she returned to Minneapolis, after spending a year as a traveling nurse, and married her husband, Martin Olav Sabo ’59.
The Sabo Center for Citizenship and Learning was founded on lessons that come from Sylvia and Martin’s work.
In 2014, the Center for Democracy and Citizenship and the Sabo Center were combined into a single entity, bringing together these two traditions of public service and citizen engagement.
Today, the Sabo Center for Democracy and Citizenship is recognized for its innovative leadership in democracy education, public work philosophy, experiential learning, and place-based engagement.
The funeral service will be held on Monday, Nov. 7, at Lakewood Cemetery Chapel, 10:00 AM, followed by a brunch and interment.

This research study (IRB #: 2022-32-03) is designed to compare two different skill-building training programs that may help college students develop adjustment-related skills. You are eligible to participate if you are a current Augsburg undergraduate student.
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: https://tinyurl.com/Skill-Building
