Mission and Purpose

Rooted in Augsburg’s mission to educate students to be informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders, we aim to:

  1. Create a culture of civic agency and engagement among students, faculty, staff, and our broader community so that graduates are architects of change and pioneers in work of public significance.
  2. Foster connections with local community based organizations and position Augsburg as an anchor institution in the Twin Cities.
  3. Revitalize the democratic and public purposes of higher education, in a time when strengthening colleges’ visible contributions to the common good, not simply to private benefit.
