For Faculty & Staff

Augsburg Faculty and Staff

Please note that we now have two physical office locations – our Study Abroad & Study Away in the USA Advising office is located in the lower level of Christensen Center, and we focus on student advising and support in this location.

Augsburg faculty seeking information about our customized faculty-led programming, can now come to our CGEE Administrative office, located in the lower level of Anderson Hall, suite 23. For more information, please see our Contact Us page for full listing of CGEE staff.

Propose an Off-Campus Course

Any course with an overnight off-campus (domestic or international) component, must be approved through Academic Affairs (AAC/GAAC, CGEE) prior to offering the course.  Augsburg faculty can propose an off-campus program by using one of our off-campus course proposal forms (linked below). Deadline for 2017-2018 courses is December 1, 2016.  Faculty may also submit proposals for 2018-2019; official decisions on 2018-2019 will not be made in January 2017 but will be reviewed and receive preference in the next cycle.

Review the process and procedures for proposing a course in our information packet.

Additional Resources:

Faculty and Staff Travel Registration

Augsburg faculty and staff who travel as part of their work for Augsburg must register their travel with the Center for Global Education & Experience. Please register by clicking on link which best describes the purpose of your travel.

Advising Sheets

Many departments have collaborated with us to create Major Advising Sheets, which are a great resource for faculty and advisers to advise students interested in studying abroad.  Email us to review current sheets, request copies, or create new sheets.

Augsburg faculty and staff are also encouraged to review the Study Abroad/Away brochure, found in our Christensen Suite.

Request a Class Visit

Would you like us to come into your class or visit your department to talk about study abroad at Augsburg? Please complete our online class visit request.  We also work with study abroad offices at other institutions to arrange classroom visits around particular themes or general study abroad promotion.

Leveraging Technology to Bring International Resources into US Classrooms

CGEE faculty and staff are bringing our resources and networks into US-based classrooms!  The international context is only an internet connection away in many cases.  CGEE has successfully hosted a Moodle discussion on microfinance, conducted a live phone interview with a Nicaragua beekeeper, and moderated an interactive blog on Mexican social work issues.  We are currently developing an online library of CGEE resources that can be virtually infused in US classrooms.  More information to come or contact us to chat about possibilities.

Export Controls

In order to ensure compliance with export controls, it is critically important for College personnel (staff and faculty) to identify activities that may trigger export controls. When export controls apply, individuals must take the appropriate steps to obtain any required governmental licenses, monitor and control access to restricted information, and safeguard all controlled materials. It is the responsibility of the individual, not the College, to ensure that all export control compliance is met. Information on export controls may be on the government website.

Faculty and Staff at Other Institutions

Faculty and staff at other institutions may create a short term program using CGEE – see information on customizing a program.

Professional Development Opportunities

Colleges and universities work with CGEE to customize their own professional development seminar for members of their campus community. Similar to all of our customized travel seminars, CGEE will design a program tailored to meet the specific needs of your institution.  CGEE has designed closed professional development programs for the Ignatian Colleagues Program (administrative officers at Jesuit institutions), Boston College, Westmont College, Concordia University-St. Paul and others.

The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) Consortium in Mexico operates the Social Work in a Latin American Context program, which takes place in Cuernavaca each spring. See our blog post regarding Social Work Consortium Membership to learn more about the program, benefits, and membership opportunities.
