Augsburg University values the diversity of persons, perspectives, and convictions. Critical thinking, rigorous analysis, and open discussion across a full range of ideas lie at the heart of the University’s mission as an institution of higher learning. Essential to Augsburg's mission to educate students to be “informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders” is that we act on a foundation of diversity, inclusion, equity, and intercultural competency.
The Augsburg University Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program is designed to help faculty and staff grow in their intercultural competence through building awareness, knowledge, and skills necessary to create more inclusive campus spaces inside and outside the classroom.

Equity and Inclusion Committee
The Equity and Inclusion Committee is a subcommittee of the University Council. The University Council was formed in 2016 after a multiyear exploration of shared governance practices at Augsburg and leads Augsburg’s internal deliberation of university-wide decisions, taking up—-as advisory to the president—-institutional considerations beyond the scope of faculty governance or any particular administrative unit.
Discrimination and Bias Reporting
Augsburg faculty, staff, students, and community members can use the Discrimination and Bias-Incident Online Reporting Form to report incidents of discrimination and/or bias.
