Seniors, Academic Advisors, and Strommen Center Staff: Please Participate in This Sociology Survey

submitted by

My name is Tori Simmons, and I’m an Urban Studies Senior. My research project attempts to understand how support services provided by Augsburg University benefit seniors as they prepare for their lives after graduation. The research question seeks an answer to the definition of success, from the perspective of students and the staff that are supporting them. This research justifies the entry level positions that college graduates should be able to attain based on the skills that employers, from my research, are saying that graduates do not have.

There’s a gap between graduate employability and career preparedness. This research will help locate where that gap lies, in an attempt to bridge it, and better prepare Augsburg seniors for employment upon graduation. Previous research studies have evaluated student success from the perspective of students and their relationships with their advisors. Studies have also sought employers to know what they are looking for when hiring for entry level positions at their organization. This research will apply the skills that employers are looking for and evaluate if Augsburg students are employable.

Participants will be asked to read a document of consent to participate and answer up to 22 questions if they are a student or 14 questions if they are a student support service staff member.

Participants will not receive direct benefits because there aren’t any incentives, but they will receive indirect benefits, such as, improving student success and the betterment of student support services at Augsburg University. The potential risks for participating in this study are that it may challenge participants to think deeply about their experiences and may awaken passionate feelings from answering questions pertaining to their experiences.

If you’re interested in participating, then click on the link in the description box below, or email my professor James A Vela-McConnel, Ph.D. at ( with questions.

The Sverdrup Visiting Scientist Program – April 10 and April 11

submitted by

The Sverdrup Visiting Scientist Program welcomes Dr. Sarah Keller, Professor Of Chemistry, and biophysicist at University of Washington-Seattle, who will give two presentations, first one on “Membranes of Hungry Yeast are Tiny Living Thermostats” and the second one on “Stabilizing fragile membranes on the early Earth , as part of the ongoing Sverdrup lecture series. In her 2023 Sverdrup Visiting Scientist lectures, Sarah Keller will discuss how the dynamicism of membranes can be both a bane and a boon for cells. Very soft and dynamic membranes can rip or disintegrate. This would have been a problem for the most ancient cells on the Earth.

Monday April 10 and Tuesday, April 11, 11:00 – 12:00pm Hoversten Chapel, Foss Center

In her Convocation Lecture on Monday, April 10, titled “Membranes of Hungry Yeast are Tiny, Living Thermostats,” Keller will discuss how yeast membranes acquire the polka-dots, how the transition can be reversed, and how yeast controls the transition. During the process of making bread and beer, yeast cells eventually run out of sugar to eat. They react by segregating certain lipids and proteins in one of their membranes.

In her Convocation Lecture on Tuesday, April 11, titled “Stabilizing Fragile Membranes on the Early Earth”, Keller will explain that small building blocks of DNA and proteins can interact with membranes, stabilizing them. These interactions have the potential to concentrate the building blocks on the surface of the membrane, helping them link up into larger molecules capable of other important jobs.

Please note the Convocation Schedule for adjusted class times on this day.

Dr. Keller will also attend, mingle, and talk to students about the Zyzzogeton Research Symposium and other events.
