Reconciling In Christ (RIC) Check-In with Student Council
Hello friends! Are you curious about Luther and RIC? Or are you interested in getting involved? We’d love to hear your questions and your thoughts! Join us for an in-person meetup on this Friday, March 4, right after chapel (virtual meetup to come!). We’ll have some designated tables set up in the Dining Room, so grab your lunch and come meet some of the student leaders of this movement. Questions? Lauren Mildahl (lmildahl001) or Esther Sianipar (esianipar001).
Free Coffee Today
Free coffee service will be available 7:30 a.m.-1 p.m. today in the Olson Campus Center second floor commons! Donations are welcome and will help us to sustain our efforts and gauge interest in providing this service into the future.
COVID-19 Dashboard for Week of February 21-25
Reported employee cases: 0
Reported student cases: 0
Students in quarantine or isolation: 0
Reported cases only include students and employees who have been on campus within a period of time during which they may have been contagious. According to the CDC this includes two days prior to the onset of symptoms or a positive test.
If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, or if you are an unvaccinated individual who has been in close contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 (close contact is defined as being within 6 feet of that person for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period), please report that to the appropriate person. For employees, that person is Michael Morrow (firstname.lastname@example.org). Students should contact David Fenrick; email email@example.com, or text 651-300-3537.
Contact Tracing Protocol
When an on-campus case of COVID-19 is reported, that person is first asked to stay off-campus and quarantine in accordance with CDC guidelines. In addition, the seminary takes two steps for contact tracing:
1. The Minnesota Department of Health is notified, per guidelines for institutions of higher education
2. The person reporting the case is asked to identify “close contacts”; the close contacts identified are notified of the exposure and asked to follow CDC guidelines for testing and quarantining (quarantine applies only to close contacts who are unvaccinated).
Exciting Proposal Opportunity for Students Only
This year the Student Council is inviting students to apply for a small grant. All proposals awarded must be used for Luther Seminary students and must align with Luther Seminary’s Welcome, Mission, and Vision Statements. Proposal and funds must be completed from April-June 2022. We do not have a cap amount to ask for funds but it will be in the form of a reimbursement. That means we will not be able to send funds without receipts. The Student Council will review all proposals and determine the winners.
Interested? Send your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
March 25, 2022: Application Deadline by 5 p.m. Central time
April 5: Winners will be announced by the Student Council
