Dear Luther community,
Welcome (or welcome back!) to Fall 2019! As orientation gets underway this week, President Robin Steinke has a special video welcome and update for new and returning students, faculty, and staff.
Blessings to all as the academic year begins!
Calling all singers!
Whether you’ve been in a choir before or if you’ve only ever been singing for the suds in your shower, all students, staff and faculty are welcome to join the Luther Seminary Choir!
The group gathers every Tuesday from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Music Room (lower level OCC) and then sings in chapel on Wednesday mornings for our weekly Holy Communion service. The choir’s first rehearsal is Tuesday, September 17th. Just show up! If you have any questions, contact choir director Mark Ertl at email@example.com.
This summer, several staffing changes occurred on the shared services marketing and communication team. Stephen Jendraszak is now associate vice president and chief marketing officer, overseeing the full area (at Augsburg, he is also responsible for the University Events department). Laura Swanson Lindahl, previously assistant director of marketing management, has moved into Stephen’s former role as director of marketing and now leads the marketing team, which is responsible for publications, web properties, and advertising. Gita Sitaramiah, director of public relations and internal communication, oversees the team responsible for media relations, issues management, and social media.
Finally, as previously announced, Jennifer Thiel has moved from Seminary Relations to the marketing team as the web and e-mail coordinator. She will resume that role when she returns from leave later this fall.
Please feel free to contact any of us with questions—we’re happy to guide you to the right person for your particular need.
