Student Engagement at AU

Augustana University Student Engagement is to connect students with each other and Augustana, and prepare leaders who will have a positive impact in a global society. Augustana Student Engagement believes:

  • Leadership is a collaborative process rather than a position.
  • Leadership can happen anywhere, at any time.
  • Everyone is an unfinished learner.
  • Service is a powerful way to develop leadership skills.

As one of Augustana University's five core values, service is a critical component of the AU experience, and there are many ways to get involved in the community. 

  • Service-learning at Augustana University means using time, talent and resources for the sake of the neighbor. It requires active reflection and enhances students’ sense of personal values and civic responsibility.
