As part of Augsburg’s Campus Space and Master Plan commitment to make the best use of our existing space, several construction projects were completed during the spring and summer. The 20-year plan, which was established in 2010, is shaped by the College’s urban location and footprint and recognizes that space use is critical to enhancing student service, stewarding resources, and maintaining college affordability.
In support of these goals, the Gage Center for Student Success opened last spring on the link level of Lindell Library, co-locating numerous student services office in a central and highly visible location. In addition, the College’s Admissions office moved into a welcoming new space in the lower level of Christensen Center. This summer, the College also moved the Strommen Center for Meaning Work to a more visible and accessible location on the main level of Christensen Center—placing at the heart of campus our commitment to student success beyond graduation.
Numerous other departments also moved to new spaces this summer. See the following listing and the attached map for information about the major departmental moves:
