Plowing This Weekend: Clear Lot B by 10 p.m. Saturday

submitted by farrisr@augsburg.edu

This weekend, Facilities is planning on doing a significant amount of snow removal from the parking lots. One of the lots of concern is Lot B (behind Urness and Mortensen). To help make the process easier for the workers, Lot B is going to be shut down from Saturday, January 21, at 10 p.m. until Sunday, January 22, at 10 p.m.

This means that any vehicle in Lot B after 10 p.m. on Saturday may be subject to ticketing and/or towing to another lot at the owner’s expense. If you typically park your car in Lot B, you can park your vehicle in either Lot L or Lot D and won’t be ticketed.

If Lot B is finished before 10 p.m., there will be a mass email letting everyone know that the lot is open again.Please continue to monitor your email for any additional information.

CTL/CWC Zoom Session: Supporting and Responding to Students in Distress

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

Our students are struggling with increasingly complex needs and demands, many of which can create barriers and challenges to academic success. Further, because faculty see their students regularly, they are often the first to notice that a student is struggling. This session will focus on helping faculty to identify students in distress by increasing awareness of signs of struggle. We will then share strategies and resources for supporting students when you notice they are struggling.

Please join Ellie Olson, Director of the Center for Wellness and Counseling on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 from 3:30-4:40pm on Zoom (link below). This session will be recorded and posted on the CTL Home Page.

Participants Needed for Paid Psychology Skill-Building Study (Earn Up to $35)

submitted by schacht5@augsburg.edu

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

The researchers conducting this study are part of the Identity and Well-being Research Lab at Augsburg University (iwellLab@augsburg.edu or 612-656-6560), directed by Dr. Alex Ajayi, Assistant Professor of Psychology (E-mail: ajayi@augsburg.edu, Phone: 612-330-1146). If you have questions or concerns, you may contact us via the emails and phone numbers specified above.

Please consider forwarding this to other individuals who may meet the criteria for participation. Thank you for your consideration!
