“We are so proud of the Scholastic Connections program,” Augsburg University President Paul Pribbenow said. “It honors our intersecting commitments to helping all students succeed at Augsburg, to supporting an intentionally diverse campus community, and to engaging our graduates in the life of the college. The SC program is an example of Augsburg at its best!”
