ANNOUNCEMENTS

Sept. 18-19 staff meeting

Staff meetings begin again this month. September's agenda includes Aaron Steffens, with tips on orienting and supervising student workers, and Jon Jensen, who will share the goals and vision for the Center for Sustainable Communities. The meeting will be offered twice in Peace Dining Room to allow greater participation at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, and at 9 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 19. All staff are strongly encouraged to attend.

Respecting chapel time

A reminder to the community that there are to be no meetings scheduled during 10:30-10:50 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Luther is distinctive in its practice of setting aside space for community-wide chapel and the campus is asked to respect this tradition of having "set apart" time for reflection and spiritual nourishment. 

State of the College address

Luther College President David L. Tiede focused on challenges facing higher education and the college's strengths in meeting those challenges during his state of the college address Aug. 29. Tiede, Luther's interim president during the search for the college's 10th president, began his term July 1.

EDITORIAL COMMENT

September is National Self Improvement Month:

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
Ernest Hemingway

“No matter who you are, no matter what you did, no matter where you've come from, you can always change, become a better version of yourself.”
Madonna

“How noble and good everyone could be if, every evening before falling asleep, they were to recall to their minds the events of the whole day and consider exactly what has been good and bad. Then without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day.”
Anne Frank

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
Carl R. Rogers
