AWE (AUGSBURG WOMEN ENGAGED)— CONNECTING, LEARNING, GIVING
Augsburg Women Engaged (AWE) is a catalyst for tapping the potential for women to connect, learn, and give. We believe all women have knowledge, experience, and resources to share. Therefore, alumnae are invited to make meaningful connections with and for Augsburg’s AWEsome women by participating with an AWE Action Team. We welcome participation in whatever way best suits your interests, circumstances, and availability.

Exploring Green Space in Minneapolis and Beyond with Dr. Kristin Anderson
Saturday, May 5, 2018 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The Twin Cities are known for its abundant green spaces, especially the lovely parks dotting the local landscape. The fact there are so many wonderful areas is no accident. During this guided bus tour, we will learn about the people and ideas that brought these green spaces into being. Starting at Augsburg (home to Minneapolis’ oldest city park, Murphy Square), we venture to historic parks and cemeteries around Minneapolis and beyond to explore the Augsburg connections to these fascinating places. We will then return to campus for lunch in the new Hagfors Center for Science, Business, and Religion for a special view of the campus, past and present.
Dr. Kristin Anderson is Professor of Art History and Archivist at Augsburg. She is popular speaker in church and community settings and gives tours and presentations focusing on architecture, sustainability issues, women in baseball, and art at Target Field. Kristin serves as the president of the Minnesota Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians (MNSAH), and she is the chair of the Minnesota Historical Society’s State Review Board for National Register of Historic Places designations.
