Gen. Ed. Survey — Please Participate

submitted by devries@augsburg.edu

The General Education Design Team invites your participation in this survey about the core curriculum. We have been working for more than a year to evaluate the current program, understand the needs of our students, and imagine more effective pathways for their academic and vocational success. Before we finalize our proposals, we need your input. Curriculum design is one of the main responsibilities of the faculty, and the Design Team is eager to hear your perspectives. We are also interested in the perspectives our staff colleagues bring to these questions, and are thus inviting staff responses as well.

The questions on this survey are carefully designed to glean reliable data – that is, if enough people choose to fill it out. While many of the questions ask for a specific response (“yes” or “no”), you will find opportunities to provide qualitative feedback, which we encourage. It will be open until 5 pm on Wednesday, October 4.

As you fill it out, keep in mind that the core curriculum is a primary means through which we express the institutional mission and our highest academic values. It’s where we equip students in the basic skills, perspectives, and sensibilities to navigate their majors and the complex world beyond. Clarity about what we deliver, why and how, is imperative in today’s competitive landscape of higher education. But the core curriculum cannot do everything – there are choices to be made – so what will receive priority?

Your responses to this survey will inform the proposal the Design Team will share later this semester. At that time, you will have additional opportunities to engage in the design process.

Interfaith at Cedar Commons: Lost in Translation

submitted by svanoe@augsburg.edu

“INTERFAITH @ CEDAR COMMONS: LOST IN TRANSLATION”
This Thursday, Sept 28th 6:30-8:30pm

Religious language can carry heavy meaning. Some words hold sweet memories or deep significance for us, while other words might be associated with painful experiences, exclusion or just feel flat and dead.

Sometimes the language of our own cultural context does not translate clearly to people outside of our tradition. Even those within a religious tradition often don’t have access to the languages in which sacred texts were originally written. How much meaning is lost in translation?

Join us for a meal and an evening of discussion around the language of faith and all the complexity of communicating about deeply held values and beliefs.

Do you need to be a “person of faith” to come? Absolutely not. We welcome anyone with interest in conversation about how faith/spirituality shape our lives and intersect with the issues we care about.

Hosted by: Interfaith @ Cedar Commons organizer team and the Augsburg Interfaith Scholars.

(Cedar Commons, part of Augsburg, is at 2001 Riverside Ave. S – below Trinity’s offices)

2017 Christensen Symposium – Today

submitted by glasere@augsburg.edu

Join us on Thursday, September 21 as we welcome ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton for the 2017 Christensen Symposium!

Morning Event: Christensen Symposium Address by Bishop Eaton
Interfaith Friendships: How Difference Can Bring Us Together
11 a.m. – 12 p.m. in Hoversten Chapel, 625 22nd Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55454
To mark the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, Augsburg is hosting a series of events this fall. As the first event in this series, Bishop Eaton’s address, “Interfaith Friendships: How Difference Can Bring Us Together,” will explore Lutheran identity and the ongoing Reformation in the 21st century.

Afternoon Event: #DecolonizeLutheranism Community Panel with Bishop Eaton
2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. in Hoversten Chapel, 625 22nd Ave South, Minneapolis, MN 55454
The #DecolonizeLutheranism grassroots movement challenges long-held patterns of white power and privilege in the ELCA and exclusivity associated with stereotypes regarding what it means to be Lutheran.

The topic for Bishop Eaton’s address and the focus of the panel conversation speak to the rich and increasing diversity of the Augsburg community; the priorities reflected in Augsburg’s mission, vision, and values; the urban and global contexts that shape Augsburg’s vocation; and Augsburg’s deep grounding in, and vibrant relationship with, the Lutheran Church. Join us for this day of challenging conversations as together we envision what it means to be neighbor in a richly diverse world.

Questions? Email ccv@augsburg.edu

We hope to see you there!

Please Note:
We regret this event was scheduled on Rosh Hashanah. Prayers for God’s blessings on Jewish people throughout the world during their high holy days.

These sessions will be audio recorded. If you would like to be alerted as soon as the audio is available, please email ccv@augsburg.edu

Rayuela Festival of Latin American Music

submitted by moyar@augsburg.edu

The Rayuela Festival takes a playful approach to Latin American music and culture. The Festival aims to embrace a wide variety of chamber music repertoire, showcase talented musicians, and provide a platform for Latin American composers.

This year, the festival will consist of two performances in Sateren Auditorium at Augsburg University.

In the first concert of the Rayela Festival 2017, pianist Matthew McCright performs Reinaldo Moya’s cycle for solo piano, The Way North.

The Way North depicts the journey of a Central American migrant through Mexico and their eventual arrival in the United States. The work consists of a series of short vignettes that capture the emotional, physical and psychological tolls that these people make as they make their way north in search of a better life for themselves and their families. A piece full of force, anguish, but also hope and beauty, The Way North is a pianistic tour de force.

In the second concert of the Rayuela Festival, musicians from the Twin Cities come together to perform exciting works by Latin American composers.
