Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak Planning


After a great deal of deliberation and much consideration, we have decided to cancel the Augsburg University Traditional Powwow this spring. This was a decision that was not made lightly. Ultimately, we must prioritize the health and wellbeing of our community, especially those most vulnerable to this pandemic.

We recognize what this means to our graduating students, their families, friends, and loved ones. It is with deep regret that there will not be an honoring of our graduates on March 28, 2020. We hope to still plan a smaller honoring celebration at a later date. Details will be available as they are decided.
