CUMU 2024 Conference Is in Minneapolis – Submit a Proposal

submitted by

The Coalition for Urban and Metropolitan Universities conference will be held in Minneapolis in October. Augsburg is a sponsor for this event and active participant in the network. Check out their website for further information:

Our vision for urban higher education is not bounded by our campus borders. Our actions today reach beyond yesterday’s accomplishments and toward tomorrow’s possibilities. We are vital members of our local, regional, and global communities. We expand affordable access for students to participate in postsecondary education and the workforce. We reach above and beyond to create opportunities for engaged citizenship. We explore across disciplinary boundaries to ask and answer our most pressing questions. And we build bridges that span real and perceived boundaries to enhance the well-being of our students, communities, and regions.

We welcome your proposal for a conference session that highlights ongoing or completed work that yields data-informed insights for other institutions to learn from and build upon. Conceptual or theoretical proposals that lead to genuinely new understandings or avenues of work, as well as critical perspectives with the potential to shape the field, are considered. We will consider submissions within the following intersecting tracks that illuminate how our campuses and partnerships are redefining what is possible when we reach beyond boundaries: Anchor strategies, Belonging, equity, and justice, Democracy, Impact, K-16 partnerships, Social and economic mobility.

Submissions due: April 3
Notifications sent: mid-May
Presenter acceptances due: May 24
Program announced: June 6
Conference: October 20–23

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!

Rally & March to End Evictions – 5 p.m. TOMORROW

submitted by

Join Camp Nenookaasi and the East Phillips Neighborhood at the Government Plaza THIS WEDNESDAY, March 13th at 5pm. Evicting unhoused encampments is inhumane, expensive and NOT a solution to homelessness.

Camp Nenookaasi is marching on City Hall before its court case on 3/14. Come hear from past and current residents as well as organizers from across various movements to speak out against the city’s cruel, colonial non-solution of encampment eviction.

You can take the Blue or Green Line directly to the Government Plaza Light Rail Station. The rally takes place on the plaza and the march will leave from that location.

Contact Jenean Gilmer at with any questions or go to

Paid Sim Patient Opportunity (4/9)

submitted by

The Augsburg PA program is seeking people who can become pregnant who are interested in being a genitourinary (GU) simulated patient/model for our Physician Assistant students. The model/patient will provide students with the opportunity to examine reproductive anatomy and learn to perform a thorough and patient-centered pelvic and speculum exam.

GU simulated patients need to have an intact uterus, cervix, and ovaries (no history of hysterectomy). Reimbursement is $65 per pelvic exam, with an average of 6-7 exams per session. The lab day will be 4/9/24 from 1-4.

Because this is a hands-on and sensitive topic, patients must be comfortable with a full pelvic and speculum exam. Prior exam experience is preferred. Any questions or concerns can be directed to
