The Seminary’s Hybrid Work Policy allows flexibility to work from home while, at the same time, encouraging in-person collaboration for the sake of our mission and community. Last spring, we announced changes to our Hybrid Work Policy that would be effective at the start of the Fall semester, which begins September 11.
As a reminder, our updated policy requires employees to work from campus a minimum of 3 days per week. Employees will work from campus on Wednesdays and, with their supervisors, select the other two days per week they will work from campus. If you have not already spoken with your supervisor regarding your schedule, please do so. Please direct any questions to your supervisory or HR.
Hybrid work arrangements are appropriate for some team members and job descriptions but not for others. As we begin a new academic year, let’s give thanks for all our colleagues whose vocations play important roles in bringing our mission to life each and every day!

The oral examination is a public event open to faculty, students, and staff; however, other than the candidate, only faculty members have speaking privileges.
What is a Ph.D. oral defense? The oral defense is the final step before graduation for Ph.D. degree candidates. The student has finished all research and is presenting a thesis that is an original contribution to the field of scholarship. A copy of the completed thesis is available prior to the defense for those in the Luther Seminary community.

Attention faculty and staff! Please join us at the Survey Research Group, formally known as the Qualtrics Users Group. We meet monthly via Zoom, with our next meeting on September 14 from 12–1:00 p.m. This group is for not just surveys, but also if you may use forms in Qualtrics, which is more sophisticated than Google Forms. For our next meeting we welcome you to come share how you use or plan to use Qualtrics in your work in your area or surveys in general. We would also like to discuss the future of this group.
If you have questions or want and/or want to be added to our group, please contact Trina Smith (firstname.lastname@example.org).
