Full-Time Faculty: Get Your Pedagogy on in May

submitted by

CTL is pleased to again offer our two annual, pedagogy-focused workshops this May! Both of these workshops require a short application and are limited to 8 participants each. Participation in each workshop also comes with a small stipend to support summer work focused on incorporating an aspect of the concepts into one of their courses.

The Integrated Course Design (ICD) Workshop is a 4-day (9am-noon each day) workshop offered to encourage faculty to develop their knowledge and skills in evidence-based engaging course design to create significant learning experiences for their students. It will take place May 17-18 and May 24-25, 2023 on campus.

The Anti-Racist Pedagogy (ARP) Workshop is a 2-day (9am-noon each day) workshop designed to build on Augsburg faculty’s critical self-reflection of their own social position (e.g via the Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program and anti-racist training) by providing evidence-based, anti-racist methods for designing and teaching courses in any discipline. It will take place May 4-5, 2023 on campus.

To find out more information about each of these workshops and to apply, please see the CTL Annual Grants & Awards Webpage (link below). Applications for both Workshops are due March 3rd by midnight. If you have any questions or problems accessing the applications, please contact CTL (

Annual Distinguished Contribution Faculty Award Nominations Open Through March 17

submitted by

Each year, Augsburg University recognizes up to four faculty members for excellence in one of three categories: teaching, scholarship, and service. Candidates for these Distinguished Contribution awards must be nominated by a member of the Augsburg community – faculty, students, staff, or leadership. Thus, we are counting on all of you to ensure we know of the faculty who deserve this recognition!

New this year: the nomination process has been changed to require less up-front time for the nominator with the goal of substantially increasing the numbers of initial nominations.

All full-time faculty who have taught at Augsburg for the last 3 years are eligible to be nominated for all three categories (Teaching, Service, and Scholarship). Adjunct faculty who have taught at Augsburg for the last 3 years are eligible to be nominated for the Teaching category.

Support East Phillips and Little Earth in Their Fight to Defend the Depot

submitted by

In The South Minneapolis neighborhood of East Phillips, on Dakota territory, there is a building known as the “Roof Depot.” Community members, and especially those living at the Little Earth housing complex, want to turn it into a community center and indoor farm, with rooftop solar. The city of Minneapolis wants to demolish it, to build a highly polluting truck yard and diesel fueling station.

The Depot suppresses an arsenic plume deposited by a pesticide factory that operated next door from 1938-1963. If it gets demolished, residents would be at risk of toxic arsenic exposure. The city has no stated plan for remediating this arsenic or ensuring that it won’t poison community members.

To learn more, visit their website and follow them on Instagram @defendthedepot for updates!

The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, serves 9 districts across the Twin Cities Metro by providing the resources schools need to have successful debate teams. In 2015, with the help of community and on-campus partners, we hosted the Somali Debate Initiative Tournament – the first program of its kind in the nation. This tournament has grown into regular spring programming serving more than 100 students per year. In 2019, we rebranded the program to the East African Debate League, expanding our focus to include more students in these discussions about essential issues affecting the East African community.

From May-June, East African students debate a critical topic chosen by the community. Students have the opportunity to debate at three tournaments, leading to our special championship/community celebration event.


As we return to in-person programming after several years of virtual tournaments, we need in-person judges who can work with us in the Twin Cities!

No experience with debate is needed. Judges watch debate rounds and then evaluate teams on argumentation, logic, and public speaking skills.

Volunteers receive a short training and all necessary materials prior to the start of tournaments. Please attend our event to learn more, including how to become a paid judge!
