Annual Distinguished Contribution Faculty Award Nominations Open Through March 17

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

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 ctl@augsburg.edu.

TODAY- Join CTL and CWC for a Zoom Session on Faculty Well-Being from 3:30-4:30pm

submitted by reederm@augsburg.edu

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.

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.
