Opportunity to be a Christensen Scholar for 2015-16

snapshot for websiteAuggies ask Big Questions: What are yours? 

The 2015-2016 Christensen Scholars Seminar explores the Big Questions, the ones that keep you awake at night, that urge you to march, that press you into conversation with strangers, that prompt you to notice injustice.

As a college in the Christian tradition, Augsburg takes religion seriously.  We regard it as a subject of critical inquiry, even as we respect its practice as a faith.  As a college in the Lutheran tradition, Augsburg uses vocation as a way of engaging Big Questions.  Vocation is a full-bore, full-body experience.

Led by Professor Martha E. Stortz, the scholars will use a four-fold strategy to address those questions:

theological reflection, the head-trip part of the seminar, involving reading, writing, and critical thinking about vocation;

spiritual engagement, the heart of our work, a reflective component;

social action, hands-on work in the community;

everyday experience, as we learn our immediate context.

The Christensen Scholars earn upper level religion credit, receive a $2000 tuition scholarship, and meet every Thursday evening throughout the academic year beginning at 6pm, alternating class discussion with work in the shelter. We’ll touch base with the Interfaith Scholars at several points during the year.

An overview with further details about the program is available on our website. Please take a look and consider applying by February 5.

The application process is available on the Christensen Scholars website.
