New Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program
It is with great pride that I announce the launch of Augsburg Colleges first Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program. The Certificate Program is designed to help faculty and staff continue to grow in their intercultural competence and to build the awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary to create more inclusive spaces inside and outside of the classroom. The Certificate Program offers participants the opportunity to further develop skills necessary for diversity and inclusion work, access to cross-culturally valid assessment tools, direct experience effectively communicating across differences, and a better understanding of institutionally-based bias and microaggressions faced by marginalized communities.
In order to complete the Certificate Program and receive the certificate, participants must complete 18 hours of inclusion-based training. After participants complete the program, they have the option of completing an additional 6 hours to earn advanced standing in the Program. Certificate Program participants will receive their certificate at the end of the academic year in which their program was completed and will be recognized at either the Annual Faculty Recognition Luncheon or the Annual Staff Appreciation Awards and the Annual May Creating an Inclusive Campus Conference.
For more information about the Certificate Program, please visit inside.augsburg.edu/diversity/certificate-program/.

Film Sunday at Parkway Re: Conquest of Americas
Documentary Film Premiere this Sunday at the Parkway Theater featuring The Doctrine of Discovery: Unmasking The Domination Code.
This powerful and landmark documentary "The Doctrine of Discovery: Unmasking The Domination Code" is a result of the collaborative efforts by Dakota filmmaker and Director Sheldon Wolfchild and Co-Producer Steven Newcomb (Shawnee, Lenape). The film, based on Newcombs thirty years of research, and his book Pagans in the Promised Land: Decoding the Doctrine of Christian Discovery (Fulcrum, 2008), brings to the big screen an amazing and little known story:
The first Christian people to locate lands inhabited by non-Christians ("infidels, heathens, and savages") claimed the right to assert a right of domination to be in themselves. On the basis of this religiously premised argument, the U.S. Supreme Court has defined the land title of the Indian nations as a "mere right of occupancy" subject to a right of domination on the part of the United States. The first "Christian people" that claimed "ultimate dominion," said the Supreme Court, could grant away the soil while yet it was still in the possession of the "natives, who were heathens."
The film calls upon the Holy See at the Vatican to revoke the papal decrees that set into motion the domination system, and points out that the values and teachings of original nations are a sacred path for all Life.
Date: September 4th 2015
LOCATION: Pepitos Parkway Theater, 4814 Chicago Ave South Minneapolis, MN 55417
Director Sheldon Wolfchild (Dakota) and Co-Producer Steven Newcomb (Shawnee, Lenape)
