submitted by

Dear Augsburg Community,

The vote on the proposed general education revisions is planned for the faculty meeting on Wednesday, April 10th from 3:40 – 5:10pm. Information about the proposed revisions is available in the updated General Education Revision Proposal. The proposal consists of an introduction (p. 1), an executive summary (p. 2), and an overview of the rationale and proposed revisions to our undergraduate general education curriculum (pp. 3 – 11).

We are grateful to Augsburg Day Student Government for their review and unanimous support of the proposed revisions, to our faculty colleagues for their comments and questions at the first reading during the March faculty meeting, and to all those who contributed to this important initiative over the last year.

With gratitude,
Stacy (

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!
