Reimagining Augsburg: Learning, Retention, and Success
All faculty, staff, and students are invited to participate in the fifth annual conversation to co-create an inclusive campus. Please register, so we can get a sense of how many people will be attending each session and meal. You can register at: http://augsburg.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_1TYXUJrfRXBp0gZ
The opening session, "Reimagining Augsburg: Learning, Retention, and Success" includes a keynote presentation by Dr. Eric Jolly, President of the Science Museum of Minnesota and member of Augsburg's Board of Regents, entitled "Engagement, Capacity, and Continuity: A Trilogy of Student Success." This will be followed by reimagining working sessions focused on learning, retention, and success.
Other sessions address accessibility and students with mental health and learning disabilities, current measures of how well we are doing in creating an inclusive campus, and classroom strategies for creating inclusiveness. For a complete schedule, please see http://inside.augsburg.edu/ctl/files/2012/08/2013-CIC-Flyer.pdf
Please join us to help co-create a more inclusive campus.

Thoni Award Nominations Sought
The Thoni Award is an annual award honoring a graduating senior student from the adult undergraduate program (in Minneapolis or Rochester) whose actions, commitments, and future aspirations most profoundly demonstrate a commitment to Augsburg's motto of "Education for Service." The award (including a plaque and honorarium) is announced at the June commencement ceremony.
Faculty and staff are asked to nominate students for this award by May 24, 2013. In making a nomination, the nominator(s) should provide their name and the name of the student being nominated, and write a brief nomination entry that includes a response to the following:
1. Describe ways in which s/he has been called to service and how s/he has acted on this call (consider service to the college, faith community, neighborhood/community and/or family);
2. As you consider the nominee's background and future aspirations, please describe how the nominee's education as an adult learner will shape his/her service to others, in one or many roles (community member, parent, employee, citizen, etc.).
Nominations may be sent to Judi Green in the Dean's Office, firstname.lastname@example.org
