Join us tomorrow for Summer 2020: A Monthly Dialogue

On behalf of MSS & LGBTQIA+ Student Services, we would like to acknowledge that this time has carried a lot of resurgence of racial trauma for our students and communities, in particular Black students.
We recognize that this is one of many statements of commitment to racial justice during these times. However, we still want to let you, our students, know that we are thinking about you. Higher Education is rooted in white supremacy, and therefore it is our responsibility to focus our work on holding our institution accountable, and that is an ever-evolving goal. We stand with our students, and we aim to hold Augsburg accountable, as well as dismantling white supremacy in all spaces.
A new initiative that will begin this summer will invite students to engage with each other and MSS & LGBTQIA+ Student Services in discussions. Our liberation is interconnected, and we want to honor that with on-going monthly dialogues that allow us to do the work of community organizing and racial healing. The first of these meetings will be held on July 16th, 2:00 PM, via Zoom. It will be “Monthly Dialogue: Summer 2020” focused on rest, recovery, and connection, and a look at how this summer has influenced all of us.
In solidarity,
Hana, Hli, Jamie, Max, & Ruby

Augsburg University American Indian Student Services is sharing this important post from the Augsburg LGBTQIA+ Student Services. We are committed to supporting students and providing help and resources

CW: Sexual assault/violence






LGBTQIA+ Student Services wants to remind & reiterate our commitment to ending sexual violence, sexual assault, & domestic violence.
If you or someone you know is a survivor of sexual or domestic violence, you have options, you have support, and you have our word that we will believe you!
Max and others are currently working on a comprehensive landing site, to report any and all concerns - including sexual misconduct. This site will allow students, employees, and community members alike to report concerning behaviors or incidents that happened on or off campus. This will allow for a better (and more transparent) process in handling Title IX, conduct, Discrimination & Bias cases and beyond.
If you or someone you know has experienced sexual assault, you may always reach out to Dean of Students, Sarah Griesse. You may always talk with faculty and staff, however, please know all individuals but CWC & Campus Ministry staff are mandated reporters.
Please know the Aurora Center is a free resource for Augsburg students, provided by UMN-TC.

Hearts are heavy, minds are full, and energy is low.

If you are needing to process or speak to a therapist of color, you have options. Please see below for more information:

"We are a growing group of 4 therapists of color with some open pro bono slots to support BIPOC folks affected by recent events in light of the killing of George Floyd. All therapists are trauma informed. Together with a group of energy works (healing touch, reiki etc.) who have stepped up to provide pro bono sessions the collective is called "Heartful Healers Coalition." If you know of anyone needing the above services and who identifies as BIPOC please have them complete the referral form below. Thanks!

Community healing Disclaimer: Energy work is not a substitute for medical treatment. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic most healers will work remotely. The efficacy of energy work is not diminished and is not dependent on in person presence.    Since this service is dependent on volunteers,  demand and supply will aff...
