submitted by

Do you wish you had uninterrupted time to write/work on scholarship? If so, you will want to take advantage of the annual Jessica Nathanson Scholarly Writing Retreat at the Dunrovin Retreat Center. Jess established a tradition of allowing faculty time away from campus to focus entirely on scholarship. There is no schedule for this retreat – it is simply time and space to work on scholarship. There is no cost to you for this retreat — The Center for Teaching and Learning will cover room and board (and WiFi). We ask that you commit to being present on all three days of the event. Our time begins at 5:00 pm on Sunday May 14th and ends at 3:00 pm on Tuesday May 16th. Space is limited to 18 full-time faculty members.

Full-Time Faculty: Only 2 Seats Remaining for the Integrated Course Design Workshop in May

submitted by

Participating in the Integrated Course Design (ICD) Workshop will change the way you think about teaching. It is offered to encourage faculty to develop their knowledge and skills in evidence-based, equitable, engaging, and holistic course design. Based on the work of L. Dee Fink, the workshop is designed to offer participants a reframing of their work from “teacher” to “designers of learning experiences.” More than a collection of different teaching strategies, integrated course design is an overall system for thinking about how all course elements and strategies intersect with one another to create significant learning experiences for students — experiences which engage students with your content and lead to changes in the way they live in and understand the world.

When: Wed May 17; Thu May 18; Wed May 24; Thu May 25 ; 9am-Noon all days
Where: Augsburg University Campus
Who: All full-time Augsburg faculty members are eligible to apply for one of the 8 seats in the workshop. Those accepted into the ICD Workshop will receive a $1000 stipend to support work on their course over the Summer.

June 3: Support Girls and Gender Expansive Youth in Financial Literacy Leadership Debates

submitted by

Are you a woman or gender expansive person employed or studying in the field of finance?

The Minnesota Urban Debate League, a program of Augsburg University, serves middle and high school students in the Twin Cities. We are looking for leaders to join us as volunteer debate judges for our Financial Literacy Leadership Debates program.

In this program, girls and gender expansive youth learn about core financial literacy subjects through the fun, engaging, and competitive vehicle of debate. The topic this year involves the advantages and disadvantages of banking at a large national bank versus a local credit union.

No debate experience is needed – we will train you. Attend our luncheon at Augsburg University, judge debates, and share your story!

The debate event will take place on June 3rd from 9:30 AM-2:30 PM.

Don’t Lose Your Mail

submitted by

As we near the end of another year please don’t forget to take care of your campus mailbox. This includes checking it for any mail, returning your lock and filing out the survey for what you would like us to do with your mail after this semester.

Two weeks after the spring semester ends (May 15, 2023) we will be closing all student campus boxes. Then in August before the fall semester starts we will reassign them (possible new numbers) to all students living on campus. Commuter students can then request to have a campus box if they would like one.

If you would like your mail forwarded or would like to keep your mailbox open for the summer, please either fill out this survey ( or send us an email ( with any relevant information. There is also an option to be reassigned your current campus box number for the next semester if you will be returning in the fall.

We are only able to forward 1st Class USPS mail and packages. Other packages (UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc.), magazines, non-profit mail and standard mail will not be forwarded. We can also only forward to USA addresses. The forwarding period for the Augsburg Mailroom is two months from when the request is submitted. Afterward any additional mail we receive will be returned to sender.

We request that you contact the people/business sending you mail and update your address with them. Enrolling in online/electronic bills or statements can also be a smart option. It is environmentally friendly, secure and will often save you time (and sometimes money). Asking us to forward your mail does not change your mailing address with the post office or the University, just the Mailroom.

Earth Day 2023 – Fight Environmental Racism

submitted by

Earth Day 2023 – Fight Environmental Racism
SATURDAY, APRIL 22, 2023 AT 1 PM – 3 PM
28th Street and Longfellow Ave S, Minneapolis MN

On this Earth Day, Saturday, April 22 2023 we should make it clear to Mayor Frey and cronies that Little Earth, East Phillips and supporters say NO to the demolition of the Roof Depot and the Hiawatha Expansion project. Adding the prospect of arsenic poisoning and the toxic fumes of hundreds of heavy vehicles to one of the most polluted neighborhoods in MniSota is not addressing climate change.

The people of Little Earth and East Phillips are overwhelmingly working class and BIPOC, and do not accept that Frey’s corporate and political interests are more important than breathing clean air and drinking clean water. The massive cumulative impact of pollution sources already in East Phillips was brought about by concentrating pollution in East Phillips. Fighting climate change can only be brought about by fighting environmental racism.
