Augsburg University, the new home of The Forum on Workplace Inclusion, has been on a journey during the past decade to become an institution that embraces diversity, works at inclusion, and seeks equity. It is a journey with lessons for other higher education institutions, as well as other organizations.
On March 11, Augsburg’s President Paul Pribbenow will share the story of Augsburg’s journey with its many concrete implications for policy and practice, including efforts to make higher education more accessible to diverse students, internal work to build intercultural competencies, and governance strategies that position Augsburg as a thought and practice leader in the DEI space.
The session from 9:45 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., March 11 is called Hospitality is Not Enough: An Institutional Journey From Diversity to Inclusion to Equity.
Media are invited to attend.
To RSVP, contact: Gita Sitaramiah, Director of PR and Internal Communications, 612-330-1476.
