URGO SUMMER RESEARCH PROGRAM: All disciplines welcome
The URGO Summer Research Program is an 11-week, on-campus program (May 15th – July 28th) where students are funded to conduct research with a faculty mentor. Students receive support throughout the research process from their faculty mentor, a Speaker Series, and weekly seminars with fellow researchers. URGO provides full-time summer researchers (400 hours) with a $6,000 stipend and housing discount while half-time researchers (200 hours) receive a $3,000 stipend and a housing discount.
URGO SUMMER RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIPS
URGO also provides funding for students to work for a professor as a research assistant on an ongoing research project. This is a 100-hour commitment over the course of the summer and comes with a $1,500 stipend. This is an excellent opportunity to try out research for the first time or focus on a specific aspect of a research project.
Phase 1 of the applications are due February 9th at 11:59 PM, so start talking with your faculty members to learn about what research or creative activity is going on in your department!

The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a program of Augsburg University. We provide academic competitive debate programming to more than 1,200 Twin Cities students. We’re seeking remote volunteers for the 2023 Spring Semester!
Because many of the students we work with are English language learners, one of the most powerful tools we have to help rookie debaters learn is auditory supplements to our written packets. With these recordings, students at all skill levels will be able to follow along with the text as they read, learn evidence while doing other tasks like doing chores or riding the bus, and rapidly improve their literacy and information retention.
How You Can Help
We are seeking volunteers to record our evidence packets at a conversational pace (120 words per minute). Help us record evidence for the following programs:
• Middle School Policy Debate: Record nonfiction evidence about the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) written in English. Recordings needed by January 27th.
• Spanish Debate League: Record nonfiction evidence about Puerto Rico statehood written in Spanish. Spanish fluency is required. Recordings needed by February 17th.
• East African Debate: Record nonfiction evidence about a topic central to the East African Debate community in the Twin Cities (TBD), written in English. Recordings needed by March 1st.
• Financial Literacy Leadership Debates: Record nonfiction evidence regarding the advantages and disadvantages of banking at a large national institution versus a small, local credit union. Recordings needed by April 1st.
Volunteers need to be able to speak slowly, clearly, and with energy. No special recording equipment is required, although we do ask that you record in a quiet space with minimal distractions. We can edit your audio for you.
Interested? Please contact Rebecca at email@example.com to let us know, and/or fill out this form: https://forms.gle/j3KeHjxUjpsuvmic6

With the start of 2023, Central Services has new procedures. As part of this we have new hours and staff. Cody has moved to another Loffler site and we are adding a great group of student workers to our Shipping/Receiving team. The Shipping/Receiving hours are now Mon to Fri from 10 am to 3 pm, the hours we are able to have our student workers available.
The Copy Center will be receiving packages from the delivery drivers outside of those hours to ensure things are not left around campus, but package pick ups need to be done between 10 am to 3 pm. If you are unable to make it during those hours you can reply to the email and give us the name of the person you authorize to pick up that package.

Many faculty who engage in qualitative research use some form of qualitative data analysis software (QDAS). There are a number of popular QDAS packages. We are interested in learning which software packages Augsburg faculty use and/or would prefer to use. This information will be used to inform choices for institutional subscriptions.
