Auggies Engage aims to co-create a shared vision of civic and campus life with fellow students, problem-solving for the benefit of the whole community. Do not underestimate the power of your voice. We don’t.
Throughout September and October, incoming first-year and transfer students meet with a student leader on campus to build a relationship and explore your power and purpose at Augsburg University. Your student leader will reach out to you via your Augsburg email account to schedule a time to meet.
As an incoming Transfer or First Year student, you will have the opportunity
- To connect with current student leaders with whom they may not necessarily connect to create understanding around shared interests, values, goals, and passions;
- To begin to inform students’ sense of agency and community on campus; and
- To ask any questions or share any concerns they have regarding their first few weeks on campus.
Engaged Students operate from a mindset that campus and community change is a possibility and that new realities can be realized. They build relationships and alliances with fellow students, staff, and faculty; and attempt to build their capacity by understanding others’ values, cultures, backgrounds, and experiences (adapted from Strom, 2006).
