Following the end of the federal public health emergency for COVID-19, Augsburg no longer requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination for students or employees, effective June 1. While no longer required, the university strongly recommends that everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines for their age group.

Students, faculty, and staff should also continue to complete the COVID-19 self-reporting form following a positive COVID-19 test or exposure to receive information and timelines for testing, isolation, and masking.

More information, including the self-reporting form, is available on the Outbreak Planning website.

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

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 here on Augsburg University’s campus. Thank you for your consideration in joining us!
