Augsburg University engages a diverse, multicultural environment and has maintained a strong academic reputation defined by excellence in the liberal arts and professional studies since 1869. Augsburg’s campus in Minneapolis surrounds Murphy Square, the city’s oldest park. The Mississippi River and the Seven Corners theater district are just a few blocks away, and convenient bus routes and light rail transit lines connects Augsburg with the greater Twin Cities area including downtown Minneapolis, St. Paul, the Airport and the Mall of America. International students at Augsburg are welcomed by an International Student Orientation each semester, and have the opportunity to stay engaged through the International Student Organization with opportunities to connect to other students.
International Students have the opportunity to also get engaged on campus beyond the classroom in intramural sports, student groups and activities, and residential programs. For example, at the beginning of each school year, Augsburg’s International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) and Multicultural Student Services (MSS) holds a Fall Leadership Retreat, bringing together students from all walks of life to share, learn and celebrate together across a weekend. Augsburg is the proud home to a number of student organizations and student support services that offer support and opportunities for exciting community and campus involvement, including the International Student and Scholar Services, Latinx Student Services, American Indian Student Services, Pan-Asian Student Services and the Pan-Afrikan Center.
Augsburg is the host for the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, which seeks to inspire peacemaking efforts by lifting up the work of recent Nobel Peace Prize laureates through a range of sessions, from laureate plenaries, keynote sessions, panel discussion, and breakout sessions. The Forum is now one of only three programs officially associated with the Norwegian Nobel Institute (the two others being the Nobel Peace Center and the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo).
