This Week's Message

This week's Friday conversation will offer a chance to learn about two newer initiatives at Augustana designed to meet student need: the Matthew 25 (M25) student emergency fund and the Augustana Campus Cupboard. The session will provide an overview of these initiatives as well as look at some initial data related to student economic and food insecurity at Augustana. We will also share information for faculty on how the referral process works for students who need food or other emergency economic assistance.

To prepare for the conversation, it is helpful to have some background information. Over the last two academic years, several intersecting pieces related to student food and economic insecurity emerged at Augustana:

Please join us in the Wilson Center this Friday as we look closely at these and other ways in which we all can support Augustana students. Refreshments are served at 3:30 PM and the conversation begins at 4 PM.

Kristen Glass Perez and Keri Bass
