What We Do

The Department of Student Affairs coordinates a wide variety of services, programs and activities designed to support the academic success and personal development of Augsburg students. We recognize that the college years are times for tremendous personal growth, value clarification and self-exploration. It is an incredible period in the life of every student.

We are here to provide guidance and assistance to students by helping students to pursue opportunities, access resources, and resolve issues. In times of crisis, we offer support and caring services to students.

Specifically, we…

  • Serve as a primary link for students to faculty, staff and administrators.
  • Provide campus and community involvement opportunities.
  • Promote appreciation of diverse experiences for the campus community.
  • Coordinate the campus discipline system and enforce the Conduct Code.
  • Promote a supportive learning environment for students.
  • Contact appropriate faculty/staff in the event of a student emergency or illness.
  • Facilitate the process of informing students regarding emergencies or other special circumstances needing their immediate attention.

Drug Free Schools Plan

Augsburg University is committed to the prevention of alcohol abuse and the illegal use of alcohol and other drugs.  The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (Public Law 101-226) requires an institution of higher education (IHE) to adopt and implement a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.
