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

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

submitted by

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:

The researchers conducting this study are part of the Identity and Well-being Research Lab at Augsburg University ( or 612-656-6560), directed by Dr. Alex Ajayi, Assistant Professor of Psychology (E-mail:, 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!

Interested in Research and Graduate School? Apply to the TRIO McNair Scholars Program

submitted by

Augsburg’s TRIO McNair Scholars Program is recruiting students for Fall 2023 admission. Eligible applicants will be at Junior status by the end of Spring 2024 and available to conduct full-time research Summer 2024. Students from all majors are welcome to apply, though preference is given to applicants that are interested in pursuing a doctoral (Ph.D.) degree. The priority deadline to apply is March 31; however, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all participant slots are filled.

The TRIO McNair Scholars Program works with students who are members of groups underrepresented in graduate education and who exhibit strong academic potential. The goal of the program is to prepare Scholars for graduate study through coursework, academic advising, workshops, and involvement in undergraduate research and other scholarly activities. The program also assists with securing admission to and financial assistance for enrollment in graduate programs. Students will acquire the research skills necessary to succeed in graduate school through a paid research internship ($6000) with an Augsburg faculty member during Summer of 2024.

The McNair Scholars Program is federally-funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Therefore, to be eligible, applicants must be first-generation (neither parent graduated from a four-year college or university) AND low-income AND/OR may be persons from groups underrepresented in graduate education. The Department of Education defines these groups as African-American, American Indian, Alaskan Native, and Hispanic/Latino. Additionally, applicants must be either U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents and maintain at least a 2.8 cumulative GPA (3.0+ preferred).

If you’re interested in learning more about McNair or you’re unsure whether you qualify, please contact Lara Crombie, Program Coordinator,

The Augsburg PA program is seeking people assigned female at birth who are interested in being a gynecological (GYN) simulated (SIM) patient for our Physician Assistant students. The GYN simulated patients provide students with the opportunity to examine the female anatomy utilizing their own body and personal feedback to help students learn to perform a thorough and patient-centered pelvic and speculum exam. GYN simulated patients need to have an intact uterus, cervix, and ovaries (no history of hysterectomy).

This is an opportunity to participate in the educational process and help prepare Physician Assistant students to perform pelvic and speculum examinations. This role is not recommended or advised for anyone who has experienced sexual abuse or trauma.

This position is a time block of 4-5 hours during our spring semester. Reimbursement is per pelvic exam at a rate of $65 per exam, with an average of 6-8 exams per session.
