Why’s It So Hot in Here?

submitted by

With temperatures reaching the 80s the past few days, many campus buildings have been uncomfortably warm this week. Unfortunately, when sudden hot weather arrives in spring, there isn’t an immediate way to switch from heating to cooling on campus. This transition is a multi-day process involving HVAC systems in buildings from very different eras, from Old Main to Hagfors.

We are currently targeting the week of April 24 to switch to cooling, pending temperatures at that time. The forecast for this weekend and next week involve significantly cooler and more seasonable temperatures. Thanks for your patience and understanding in the meantime.

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.

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.

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.

Earth Day 2023 – Fight Environmental Racism in the Phillips Neighborhood

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, 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.

Graduate Students: Attend a Zoom Roundtable on April 21

submitted by

Grad students from all disciplines are encouraged to participate in our upcoming Whole Leader Roundtable. Hosted by the Reell Office of Seeing Things Whole, these gatherings allow leaders the opportunity to network and provide insight to each other on today’s leadership challenges.

Our next Zoom Roundtable is Friday, April 21⋅12:00 – 1:15pm. This opportunity is open to current Augsburg Graduate Students. Contact Keri Clifton at to register or to get more information.

WHAT TO EXPECT: One individual brings a challenge for the group to explore using the Seeing Things Whole Threefold Model to understand a “whole” way forward. Advice is not given, but questions are asked as the group supports the individual to discover the many dimensions of the challenge. Challenges can be anything the individual is navigating, including how to balance work and life, how to make professional decisions about a new career path, or how sustain oneself in a challenging yet fulfilling environment. Through the Roundtable, we build trusting relationships that support leaders to reflect openly and gain insight to tackle challenges. This process supports their ability to see things whole.
