Undergrads: Chance for a $50 Gift Card – Take Our Survey Today

submitted by

My name is Dean Harris, and I am a doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology Department at Augsburg University. I am conducting this study as partial fulfillment of my doctoral degree, with Dr. Patricia Hopkins-Smith as my advisor.

You are being invited to participate in a research study on investigating influences of intrapersonal factors on the relationship between casual sex and mental health. Our study focuses on experiences of casual sex in individuals who identify as single or recently single (i.e., have not been in a relationship longer than one month). As such, if you indicated you were in a relationship for longer than one month, you do not meet our study eligibility criteria. We respect and appreciate individuals in various types of relationships, including open or ethically non-monogamous ones, but our current study’s scope is limited to investigating casual sex in those who identify as single (or recently single). If you agree to this study, I will ask you to complete a survey via Qualtrics. This survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. After completing all the survey questions, you will be invited, if you wish, to provide contact information to enter in the raffle to win one of three $50 gift card prizes, and/or emailed the results at the end of the study’s conclusion.

If you have any questions now or later, you may contact me, Dean Harris at 612-239-2534 or You can also contact my advisor, Dr. Patricia Hopkins-Smith at 612-330-1567 or If you contact me or my advisor, understand that your anonymity cannot be guaranteed; however, if you decide to participate, your data will not be connected to your name. If you have questions about your rights as a research subject or want to discuss problems/complaints about the research study, send an email to

Student Orgs, Faculty, and Staff: New Posting Guidelines in 2024

submitted by

Students, faculty, and staff: 

The university’s posting policy has been updated with a new approval requirement and submission process as of January 2024. Going forward, all posters must be approved and stamped by the Dean of Students Office—not the Copy Center—in order to be displayed on campus. 

Student organizations that wish to submit a poster for approval must do so through the university’s Lytho project management system. A registered officer from the student organization must upload their poster and include a cost center and fund to which to charge printing costs. 

1. Go to  
2. Select “Log in with SSO” and, if prompted, sign into Inside Augsburg.
3. From the “Requests” menu, select the gray “Add Request” button in the upper right-hand corner. 
4. Title your request with the name of your poster and select “Create Request.”
5. Select “Poster Approval Request Form” from the Request Form drop-down menu.
6. Complete all fields, upload your poster, and select “Submit Request.”

The Dean of Students Office will review the poster. If approved, the Copy Center will print and stamp the posters. The officer will be notified once the posters are ready for pickup in the Copy Center.

Faculty and staff may use the university’s Lytho project management system for poster submissions and approvals as outlined above. Faculty and staff may also print posters directly from the Copy Center. Once printed, faculty and staff must bring their posters to the Dean of Students Office (Memorial 118) to get them approved and stamped before posting on campus.

If you have any questions, please contact the Dean of Students Office at A Lytho project submission tutorial is available on the Marketing and Communication website.

Online Survey – Chance to Win $100 Gift Card

submitted by

Hello Auggies! I am a graduate student seeking participants for a research study. I am exploring how one’s ability to recognize and regulate their own and others’ emotions may relate to feelings of depression and social disconnect. Participation in this study will involve completing a series of behavioral health inventories and a demographic screener that will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. These inventories will ask if you have experienced symptoms of depression or loneliness and ask how intensely you experience your everyday emotions. Following completion of these inventories, participants will complete a test online that will walk participants through a variety of different tasks, such as recognition of facial expressions and implied social meanings. This test will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. All participation in this study is done online from the comfort of your own home. Students are invited to participate in this study if you: (1) are between the ages of 18 and 31; (2) have not been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia, or a personality disorder; (3) have not experienced an interpersonally traumatic life event (i.e., assault by another human being); and (4) are not currently experiencing a major health concern (i.e., life threatening illness/injury or significant transplant/removal surgery).

For your time, participants will be entered into a random lottery drawing for one of three $100 Amazon gift cards!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding participation in this study, please contact me at If you would like to participate in this study, please click the link below. You will be taken to a secure, online survey where you will be presented with a consent form followed by the demographic screener and brief inventories. Upon completion of these, you will be shown the link to the final assessment.
Thank you!
