Who we are
The University Events department represents Augsburg University to alumni, parents, and friends, as well as to prospective students and the general public.
Through experiential events and opportunities, we inform all of these constituents about the high quality and diversity of Augsburg’s programs, provide opportunities for our many constituents to interact, and celebrate the achievements of our students, graduates, faculty, and staff.
It is our objective to provide leadership and support that connect the Augsburg University community, achieve the goals of the meeting/event, raise the image of the university, and support its mission. We will be an active partner in planning meetings/events and will strive to provide a quality, welcoming experience.
Current Department Status (as of September 30, 2023)
Given multiple vacancies in University Events staff positions, we are pausing on booking events that require event planning assistance. The University Events office can still book campus meeting rooms, coordinate basic room set up, and book audio/visual support.
Events with requirements beyond the above scope will need to be discussed in advance with Rebecca John, Vice President of Operations, to determine whether/how the event planning and management might be undertaken by the department requesting the event. Please see the information below for next steps.
