Who We Are
The University Events department represents Augsburg University to alumni, parents, and friends, as well as to prospective students and the general public.
Through experiential events and opportunities, we inform all of these constituents about the high quality and diversity of Augsburg’s programs, provide opportunities for our many constituents to interact, and celebrate the achievements of our students, graduates, faculty, and staff.
It is our objective to provide leadership and support that connect the Augsburg University community, achieve the goals of the meeting/event, raise the image of the university, and support its mission. We will be an active partner in planning meetings/events and will strive to provide a quality, welcoming experience.
