The Augsburg Human Resources and Payroll team is launching a new electronic Payroll Payment Request (stipend) form and approval flow. No more paper forms!

The approval flow requires each request to be approved by the cost center’s budget manager, the Division Vice President and Vice President of Strategy. The new process reduces employee ID errors to help ensure Payroll Payment requests are processed correctly

The Payroll Payment Request form is available at sites.augsburg.edu/hr/payroll for immediate use! Old PDF/Paper forms will continue to be accepted until May 31st. Beginning June 1st only the new electronic Payroll Payment Request form will be accepted.

A couple of reminders:
-This form is to be used to request staff & student employee compensation for services rendered outside of their regularly scheduled work duties. This form should not be used in lieu of non-exempt employees recording hours worked on their biweekly timesheet. All payment requests will be reviewed for legal compliance under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
-Reimbursements for mileage, supplies, etc. should be requested from Administrative Accounting.

Supporting First-Generation College Students

submitted by hernandi@augsburg.edu

On Saturday, June 4th, three of our Augsburg University students who identify as First-generation college students will be running the FANS Ultra-Marathon. FANS (Furthering Achievement Through a Network of Support) is a college and career mentorship program for high school students, specifically working with students of color, recent immigrants, and other groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education.

Angelica Bello Ayapantecatl, Kay Joanne Carvajal Moran and Ivonne Hernandez will be participating in the 6-Hour Marathon at Normandale Lake and would appreciate the support of our Augsburg directors, professors, staff, students and community members. They are only $940 dollars short from their goal! If you have the opportunity to donate to their fundraiser anything would help!

Thank you for your generous contributions and for believing in students!

If you have any further questions about the program you may contact Ivonne Hernandez at Ivonneh@Pillsburyunited.org

Con cariño,
Angelica Bello Ayapantecatl, Ivonne Hernandez, and Kay Joanne Carvajal Moran and TEAM-PUC!

Campus Box Closing May 16 – Don’t Lose Your Mail

submitted by longj@augsburg.edu

As we near the end of another year please don’t forget to take care of your campus mailbox. This includes checking it for any mail, returning your lock and filing out the survey for what you would like us to do with your mail after this semester.

Two weeks after the spring semester ends (May 16, 2022) we will be closing all student campus boxes. Then before the fall semester starts we will reassign them (possible new numbers) to all students living on campus. Commuter students can then request to have a campus box if they would like one.

If you would like your mail forwarded or would like to keep your mailbox open for the summer, please either fill out this survey (https://forms.gle/872EQGhwK1tCWiPB6) or send us an email (mailship@augsburg.edu) with any relevant information. There is also an option to be reassigned your current campus box number for the next semester if you will be returning in the fall.

We are only able to forward 1st Class USPS mail and packages. Other packages (UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc.), magazines, non-profit mail and standard mail will not be forwarded. We can also only forward to USA addresses. The forwarding period for the Augsburg Mailroom is two months from when the request is submitted. Afterward any additional mail we receive will be returned to sender.

We request that you contact the people/business sending you mail and update your address with them. Enrolling in online/electronic bills or statements can also be a smart option. It is environmentally friendly, secure and will often save you time (and sometimes money). Asking us to forward your mail does not change your mailing address with the post office or the University, just the Mailroom.

These awards range from $2,500 to $5,000 awards and can include internship opportunities at MN Tech member companies. The Minnesota Technology Foundation supports diversity in this application and award process.

We also have Named Scholarships in specific areas supported by our generous sponsors.

We encourage you to let students know of this additional and exceptional opportunity.

Eligibility requirements:

Applicants must be enrolled at an accredited, Minnesota-based higher education institution.
Scholarships will be awarded in the fall term of 2022 and presented to recipients at Minnesota Technology Association Tekne Awards in November. Students must be enrolled at time of award.

Special Circumstances

In addition to traditional STEM fields, health science majors whose studies will NOT lead to participation in direct patient care are welcome to apply.
The scholarship is open to international students, but preference is given to students who intend to work in Minnesota after graduation.
Past scholarship winners are eligible to re-apply as long as they meet the rest of the requirements listed here.

Deadline for application is May 20th, 2022. The application form is available below or on the website.

Campus Boxes Closing

submitted by longj@augsburg.edu

As we near the end of another year please don’t forget to take care of your campus mailbox. This includes checking it for any mail, returning your lock and filing out the survey for what you would like us to do with your mail after this semester.
Two weeks after the spring semester ends (May 16, 2022) we will be closing all student campus boxes. Then before the fall semester starts we will reassign them (possible new numbers) to all students living on campus. Commuter students can then request to have a campus box if they would like one.
If you would like your mail forwarded or would like to keep your mailbox open for the summer, please either fill out this survey (https://forms.gle/872EQGhwK1tCWiPB6) or send us an email (mailship@augsburg.edu) with any relevant information. There is also an option to be reassigned your current campus box number for the next semester if you will be returning in the fall.
We are only able to forward 1st Class USPS mail and packages. Other packages (UPS, FedEx, Amazon, etc.), magazines, non-profit mail and standard mail will not be forwarded. We can also only forward to USA addresses. The forwarding period for the Augsburg Mailroom is two months from when the request is submitted. Afterward any additional mail we receive will be returned to sender.
We request that you contact the people/business sending you mail and update your address with them. Enrolling in online/electronic bills or statements can also be a smart option. It is environmentally friendly, secure and will often save you time (and sometimes money). Asking us to forward your mail does not change your mailing address with the post office or the University, just the Mailroom.

MNUDL Volunteer Opportunity: Seeking Finance Professionals to Judge Financial Literacy Debates

submitted by froehlic@augsburg.edu

You’re Invited! Judge Debates & Network with Students on May 21st!

The MN Urban Debate League is looking for financial professionals that identify as female or gender non-conforming to judge at our annual Financial Literacy Debate tournament this year!

You do not need debate experience to be a judge. We will provide training and opportunities to ask questions prior to the tournament, and will also be available to support you during the tournament.

Financial Literacy Debate is an innovative program that supports students’ public speaking, critical thinking, and financial literacy skills and knowledge. Our program works to close the gender gap in the financial sector by building the leadership and financial knowledge of high school participants that identify as female or gender non-conforming, through debate. Over the course of the initiative, students meet with their coach after school, learn about the topic area and fundamental economic concepts through an engaging curriculum, hold practice debates, and participate in a competition with other schools.

Our tournament this year is tentatively scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 21 from 9:30 am – 2:30 pm at Augsburg University. The tournament schedule will be as follows:

· 9:30 am: Judge training

· 10:00 am: Judge three debate rounds about the benefits/harms of cryptocurrency

· 1:00: Lunch and networking between students and financial professionals

· 2:00: Awards Ceremony

· 2:30: End

Sign up at our website to be a part of our event at Augsburg University on May 21st from 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM. https://mnudl.augsburg.edu/volunteer-opportunities/

Thank you for supporting our students as they build their financial literacy skills and explore career pathways in finance!
