Department Assessment Workshop on Thursday
The department assessment workshop will focus on what academic departments need to work on during the 2016-2017 year for assessment. The HLC, as shown in the response to our May report, desires to see more connection between department and institutional assessment. We will talk about what this means at the workshop. In addition, we will also be beginning a map of institutional outcomes in general education. All faculty -- not just departmental assessment coordinators -- are encouraged to come. Coffee and snacks will be provided!
Thursday, August 25 | Department Assessment Workshop | 10 a.m. - 12 p.m., Marshall Room
Augsburg Total Wellness: School Supply Drive
Happy Back to School Time, Auggies! Are you excited? I know I am, and I know that there a lot of little kiddos out there excited (and maybe a little nervous) for their first day back at school too.
To kick off the academic year, Augsburg Total Wellness is sponsoring a School Supply Drive to feel good, by doing good. All donations will be delivered to People Serving People. This non-profit organization is located in Minneapolis. As the largest and most comprehensive, family-focused homeless shelter in Minnesota, your donations will have a huge impact. Learn more about People Serving People here.
Thousands of students across the country are heading back to school in just a few short weeks. Let's help make sure each and every one has the supplies they need to be successful! From August 22nd to September 2nd, donations will be accepted in Human Resources, Memorial Hall, Room 19.
The supplies needed include (new items only):
