Webinar: Intercultural Competence and Student Development: Working Toward a Fuller Picture of Global Learning
Date & Time: September 24, 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m.
Webinar Viewing Location: Augsburg Room, Christensen Center
Kick off the new academic year with this stimulating conversation that taps into NAFSA’s growing community of practice focused on global learning.
Several instruments are designed to help locate college students on intercultural scales and measure changes in their perspectives over time. What does the data from these techniques reveal – and not – about students and their intercultural competence?
Jointly sponsored by Augsburg’s Office of International Programs, General Education, and CTL.

RACE WORKSHOP WITH PENUMBRA THEATRE
October 7, 3:40-5:40 p.m. Foss Studio
Jointly Sponsored by Academic Affairs and the Center for Teaching and Learning
Faculty and Staff – You are invited to participate in Penumbra Theatre Company’s RACE Workshop. As part of Augsburg’s commitment to being a welcoming place for all, this workshop is designed to continue the work of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee as well as build upon the momentum generated through the Creating an Inclusive Campus Conference. During this two-hour session, you will participate in a variety of activities that facilitate the exploration of your identity and the examination how your sense of self affects your perception of others. Monologues by Penumbra’s performance artists will help us hone in on the things that nurture or hinder human connection. By participating in this workshop, we hope to give you some tools to foster a deeper connection with students by first giving you the space to deeply connect with your own self.
Space is limited for this event so please RSVP to email@example.com.
