Things are changing around campus, Auggies. You already know that last March, members of Augsburg Corporation approved a resolution to change our name from “Augsburg College” to “Augsburg University.” But, just in case you missed it, you can read about that on the News and Media blog.
Lots has been going on since that resolution passed … meetings to discuss how the name change would be carried out, discussions about the order in which Augsburg would prioritize where and how the name would be changed, and more.
Now we are at the point where our new name will start to pop up around campus and in accordance with the name-change rollout plan and timeline. The rollout plan was created to guide work during the name-change swap window, to categorize the types of places our name must be changed, and to prioritize the order in which we would swap our name across thousands of physical and virtual locations.
Remember, the official launch of Augsburg University will be September 1. Then, on September 5, the first day of classes, we will celebrate becoming Augsburg University.
