May 4 Program for Faculty Who Teach Graduate Courses
The Grad Council has been discussing ways to engage the campus more generally in conversations around graduate teaching and program support. The current campus conversations around the university question have contributed to our discussion. In December, there was a joint meeting of the Grad Council and the GAAC to talk about common issues. At that meeting both groups expressed support for more activities that would bring all faculty members who teach graduate courses together for further work that advances our programs.
Toward that end, on May 4 there will be a graduate faculty workshop in the Marshall Room. The day will start about 9am and will go through lunch -- finishing about 1 p.m. There will be another email to follow that has more details regarding the topics and agenda, but for now, we are asking faculty from all graduate programs to mark their calendars and plan to join us that day.
Please contact Jolee Lilja, the MAL Program Coordinator if you can attend (email@example.com). If you have questions, please contact your graduate program director.
Faculty/Staff Seminar Trip to Germany - Apply Now
In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, Augsburg College faculty and staff are invited to apply for a seminar trip to Germany from May 8-19, 2017. The trip will be led by Dr. Russell Kleckley and Dr. Mark Tranvik of the Religion Department. We will visit Berlin, Wittenberg, Leipzig, and end our trip in Prague. The focus will be on how vocation has been understood in the Lutheran tradition and how it still informs the life and work of the college today. All are welcome...you don't have to be Lutheran to come!
Seminar participants will be asked to pay $500. For faculty, an additional $500 can be available from CTL funds. This will cover travel, room and most meals. Staff should speak with their supervisors about equivalent financial support from the College. This will cover travel, room and most meals.
Those interested should submit a brief statement describing their interest in the seminar and the anticipated benefits for both the individual and the College. About two paragraphs should be fine. This should be sent to Mark Tranvik (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Russell Kleckley (email@example.com) by no later than May 2. Profs. Tranvik and Kleckley will also take your questions or concerns.
