There will be many high-quality events and informational literature that will undoubtedly be missed. As such, all Augsburg faculty, staff and students are encouraged to use this Newsletter as only one of many different strategies to learn about ways to further develop intercultural competency, to interrupt oppression in all its forms, and to pursue equity-mindedness.
