Find Out “How Faculty Meetings Work” at Augsburg TODAY 3:45-4:45pm (Zoom)

submitted by

Can anybody ask a question? Why do we use Robert’s Rules of Order (aka parliamentary procedure)? Do I know enough to vote on something? How can I suggest a topic? Is it “safe” for me to state an unpopular opinion? Why should I even go to Faculty Meetings? Are they important?

Many who are new to Augsburg have a LOT of questions about the purpose and organization of our faculty meetings, and many who are not new to Augsburg are still trying to figure it out! Please join Andy Aoki (Faculty Senate President) and Bob Groven (Parliamentarian) for a Zoom seminar focused on “How Do Faculty Meetings Work?”. Although geared toward newer members of the faculty, the session is open to all who are interested

Part of the New Faculty Seminar Series

As always, if you have any questions or need accommodations for this session, please contact CTL at

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.

More information as well as the full nomination process and all nomination forms can be found at the CTL Annual Awards webpage (linked below). If you have any further questions or have problems accessing this information, please contact CTL at

submitted by

Teaching faculty and staff are consistently called to support and care for their students, sometimes in complex and challenging situations. In order to fulfill this role, teaching faculty and staff must also have tools, environments, and strategies that promote care and balance for themselves. This session, hosted by CTL, the Health and Well-Being Task Force, and CWC, will focus on helping teaching faculty and staff consider strategies and perspectives that can improve their own sense of professional and personal well-being.

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

Support East Phillips and Little Earth in their fight to Defend the Depot!

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.

A court has issued a 2-week injunction (temporary restraining order) against the demolition, which was scheduled to begin on February 28th. Residents from Little Earth and East Phillips successfully testified at the Economic Development Finance and Policy Committee on March 2nd. This brings them one step closer to community-owned green infrastructure in a neighborhood that has long been heavily polluted and underfunded by the city. Residents are seeking $100 million in state funding to buy the Roof Depot site from the city, and make a meaningful investment in the neighborhood.

The bill moves to the Capital Investment committee next, where they will advocate for funding to be increased from $20 to $100 million. Then the bill needs to pass the House and Senate. There are many steps to take before we can secure this funding, so stay tuned for how to support and keep up the pressure, visit their website and follow them on Instagram @eastphillipsurbanfarm and @defendthedepot for updates!

Mapping Prejudice Seeks Volunteers to Map Restrictive Racial Covenants in Property Deeds

submitted by

Mapping Prejudice identifies and maps racial covenants, clauses that were inserted into property deeds to keep people who were not White from buying or occupying homes. From their base in the University of Minnesota Libraries, they collaborate with community members to expose the history of structural racism and support the work of reparations.

Mapping Prejudice uses crowdsourcing to transcribe racial covenants in property deeds. After completing work in Hennepin and Ramsey counties, they are now helping Milwaukee and other cities create databases that track racial injustice. Join their community researchers who are learning together to document this hidden history.
