Attention Kia and Hyundai Owners

submitted by

Attention Hyundai and Kia owners –

Augsburg has experienced a number of attempted and completed auto thefts on our campus. Almost all of these incidents involved either Kia or Hyundai vehicles. This is consistent with a trend that has been occurring within the City of Minneapolis as well as across the country. We strongly encourage owners of these makes of vehicles to take extra precautions. Use of a steering wheel lock or other anti- theft device is recommended. Such devices are available on-
line and at many auto part stores. We also suggest Hyundai and Kia owners check with their dealerships to see if there are any recalls or software upgrades available for their vehicle.

The incidents that have occurred on campus and in the surrounding community are under investigation by the Minneapolis Police. Augsburg Department of Public Safety continues to patrol the campus to both deter and detect criminal and/or suspicious activity. We urge anyone who observes suspicious behavior to contact us through Dispatch at 612-330-1717.

This interactive exhibit is a collaboration between six state partners and is hosted at Augsburg by the Somali Museum of Minnesota. WCCO came to campus to hear about how water issues impact local communities by interviewing Osman Ali, founder and executive director of the Somali Museum of Minnesota, and Britt Gangeness, program administrator at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Both individuals shared their perspectives on how water connects people, communities, and countries across the world.

“We Are Water MN” will be on display until August 14—stop by OGC to check it out!

Event Announcements

Climate Grief to Joy Healing Circle on Thursday July 13, 5-8 p.m.

submitted by

Climate Grief to Joy Healing Circle on Thursday July 13th from 5-8pm in the Augsburg Community Garden.

Rooted in Indigenous thought, and held as small group workshops, Healing Circles provide a vessel for participants to name, hold, and release intense emotions around climate change, while also contextualizing how we ended up here. Unprocessed grief can limit access to the present moment. We are often either stuck in the past or jumping ahead to the future.

Through cycles of music and poetry, participants engage in an outdoor, moving journey that engages the senses and prompts a path to our individual and collective healing, unlocking the potential to shift the stories we tell and reimagine the future we are building. All are welcome, registration for this event is required, as space is limited.

Click on the link below to register and for more information on the event. This Healing Circle is sponsored by Environmental Sustainability at Augsburg and is supported by Oyate Hotanin in collaboration with musical duo Buffalo Weavers and Change Narrative, a climate programming producer —in a year-long climate action-driven project, Society of Mother Earth (S.O.M.E.).
