Augustana wins Outstanding Delegation Award

Augustana students received an Outstanding Delegation Award for their parrticipation in the 25th Model United Nations Conference last month in Chicago. Fifteen students from a variety of majors represented Augustana. Each student was responsible for researching specific policy topics. At the conference, they worked with delegations from other school to write resolutions.

Director works with student museum assistants

Dr. Claire Kovacs, interim assistant museum director at the college's Teaching Museum of Art, works with 10 students as museum assistants, managing the 4,500-piece collection and installing exhibits. "It's a work-study job for them, but also a teaching opportunity for them," she said.

Cosentino '04 and students analyze amphibian populations

Dr. Bradley Cosentino '04 is an assistant professor of biology at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in New York. He and his students recently published "Citizen science reveals widespread negative effects of roads on amphibian distributions" after analyzing 20 years' worth of data. Cosentino earned his Ph.D. at the University of Illinois. He worked with Augustana's Dr. Steve Hager last year analyzing factors that cause birds to be killed by flying into windows.

Now, everything has a learning outcome

A college education has become a widespread expectation but many students have little idea of why they’re really there. The Chronicle of Higher Education reports on Augustana's vision of how students put together and make sense of the pieces of their education. Augustana has identified nine learning outcomes — like critical thinking and quantitative literacy — that apply to everything students touch: courses, clubs, teams, residence halls.

College introduces two new certificate programs

This fall, Augustana introduced its first two certificate programs: American Culture Exploration, for one-year international students whose academic focus is American life, and Nonprofit Leadership Development. "Certificates are another way to demonstrate a skill set in a portfolio or interview, especially experience, that someone else might not have," said Doug Tschopp, director of the college's Entrepreneurial Center (EDGE).

Forum at Old Main: Measuring student career preparation

In the first installment of the Forum at Old Main video series, Michael Edmondson, associate vice president for career development, and Mark Salisbury, director of institutional research and assessment, discuss the importance of measuring student progress in career preparation while at Augustana.
