The Auggie in Residence program is another great opportunity for alumni and parents to visit campus to reconnect with the College and its students. Through this unique program, alumni and friends of the College are invited to speak at a fall or spring class, meet with student groups or associations, assist students in the Strommen Center for Meaningful Work, or tell us where you wish to help.
If you think an Auggie in Residence experience is something you would enjoy and you want to share your time and talent, contact David Hamm via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 612-330-1329.

Augsburg College has graduated more than 16,500 students since 1869, many of whom have ascended to the top of their respective fields. Recognizing the essential role career mentoring plays in higher education, Augsburg provides an opportunity for alumni, parent professionals, and friends of the college to be involved as mentors in the lives and success of Auggie students. While advising focuses on skills needed for academic success, career mentoring focuses on the important human relationships and resources needed for professional success.
The Augsburg Builds Connections (ABC) mentoring program is one of many ways which Augsburg parents, alumni, and friends of the college are able to give back to the college by supporting our current students. This volunteer driven program is designed to connect students with mentors who will provide them with the guidance, networking opportunities, and resources required to complete the complex puzzle. The flexible nature of the program lets both the student and mentor to connect via email, phone, skype, or face-to-face meetings.
If you wish to learn more about the Augsburg Builds Connections program or other volunteer programs please contact David “DJ” Hamm, Volunteer and Alumni Engagement Manager, via email at email@example.com or by phone at 612-330-1329.
The Central Corridor Funders Collaborative recently featured Augsburg President Paul Pribbenow in a video highlighting how together organizations are partnering to make neighborhoods places of opportunity that are accessible to people of all income levels, reflect community identities, and link all people to local amenities and regional opportunities.
The Central Corridor Funders Collaborative is a group of local and national funders that strongly supports the Central Corridor Light Rail Line because it offers opportunities to strengthen the regional economy and make the adjacent neighborhoods better places to live, work and access opportunity.
The Funders Collaborative supplements the programs and investment of our member foundations by working with community groups and public agencies to encourage collaboration, investment and planning “beyond the rail”.
