Citizens at the Center Workshop with Boyte, Oct 21

Augsburg's Center for Leadership Studies invites you to attend a workshop entitled "Citizens at the Center: The Emerging Movement of People's Public Work, in Minnesota and Around the World" presented by Harry Boyte. Boyte is the founder and co-director of the Center for Democracy and Citizenship at Augsburg College.

Date: Thursday, October 21
Time: 5:30 p.m. social time with refreshments; 6:00 p.m. presentation
Location: Century Room, Christensen Center

Harry Boyte's work centers on his belief that citizens can be "powerful agents of change and architects of their own lives." Boyte will give local as well as global examples of a growing movement for bottom-up change, drawn from the theory and practice of public work developed by the Center for Democracy and Citizenship. This movement is not anti-institutional—it offers promise of reintegrating government "of the people" into communities and revitalizing the civic mission of institutions. In this movement, leaders have important roles, but citizens are "at the center." Participatory democratic requires citizens to see themselves as co-creators of, not simply deliberators about, the world. Boyte will offer practical, how-to tips in making change.

In the 1960s, Boyte was a field secretary for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the organization directed by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His Ph.D. is in social and political thought from the Union Institute. Boyte is the author of several books, most recently The Citizen Solution: How You Can Make a Difference. The book will be available for purchase at the workshop.

For more information or to reserve a space, contact Patty Park at 612-330-1150 or

Please Help. Missing Wallet

Last night I realized I was missing my wallet. It is just a plain brown leather wallet. The last place I remember having it was at the MAPPS coffee shop, paying for a drink. So, it is possible I lost it anywhere between there and campus. I then spent a little time in the Christensen Center before heading back to my room in Mortensen. If you have found this wallet, please email me at
