Mortensen Hall Signage

The new, Augsburg University signage on top of Mortensen Hall is nearly complete.

The old signage that said “Augsburg College” and “Augsburg” was removed during the week of July 17 and then the sign facing was patched and repainted last week.

Please take a moment to view the new Augsburg University signage. Optimal viewing points are from Murphy Square and The Quad.

Reminder: Review, Implement Your ‘Augsburg University Department Name Change Checklist’

Individual departments in early July were provided information about the impacts of the University Name Change on their individual departments. Information was sent to academic department chairs and administrative leaders about the major steps that need to take place to ensure the campus is transformed by September 1.

If you have not begun to prepare for your department’s work to transition to Augsburg University, please don’t delay. With fewer than 30 days left before we become Augsburg University, time is rapidly passing!
