Gifts to Augsburg Works - Career Readiness contribute to:
Sesquicentennial Give to the Max Day
1,567 Donors - $417,846 Donated

The 21st century workplace is looking for candidates who think critically, work in teams, process information, communicate across differences and cultures, and are technically proficient. These skills are attained by every liberal arts student during their undergraduate studies. However, new integrated systems of learning that connects the student experience in and outside of the classroom to career readiness are necessary to ensure acquisition of professional skills, understanding of potential professional pathways, and organizational fit. The career center is transforming into an agency that creates partnerships and programs to ensure professional development is fully integrated.

A gift from you means 

  • Bringing in experts from different industries and sectors to provide training and guidance for students. 
  • Organizing site visits for students so they can explore what it might be like to work in a particular organization or company.  
  • Career readiness training like mock interviews, networking, and developing a LinkedIn profile.

A gift from you means supporting students as they grow as individuals and professionals and learn how to apply their skills, knowledge, and passion to work in the world. 

Thank You for Giving to the Max!

The Legacy of Clair and Gladys Strommen

In 2009, the Clair and Gladys Strommen Center for Meaningful Work was established to recognize Mr. and Mrs. Strommen’s personal commitment to creating meaning and purpose in work and life. The Strommen Center became the fourth of Augsburg’s Centers of Commitment that lift up our core values and live out the institutional vocation. The four Centers of Commitment include the Christensen Center for Vocation, Center for Global Education and Experience, Sabo Center for Democracy and Citizenship, and the Strommen Center for Meaningful work.

On Give to the Max Day 2019 we are continuing Clair and Gladys Strommen’s legacy by supporting Augsburg students as they develop personal and professional skills and enter into the world of work.

Visit the Strommen Center website to hear from Clair Strommen and her son Bob about the mission and creation of the Strommen Center:
