Office of Student Life and Leadership

Update August 2020

Students and staff in the Office of Student Life and Leadership are brainstorming ways to bring you together. Student programmers are pursuing several ideas, including virtual bingo, virtual Magic, a Hogwarts digital escape Room, calligraphy workshop and more.  

The Greek Council is continuing to meet and plan upcoming elections, virtual activation of new members and guidance on how to engage chapter members virtually.

Although the OSL office is closed for the remainder of spring semester, you can reach the staff: Schary Santamour, Tia Fuhr or Ken Brill.

Student Life Programming Board

The Student Life Programming Board is committed to providing a meaningful experience outside of the classroom by means of development and growth of the whole person, exposing students to a wide variety of experience through the arts, entertainment, and educational programming.

Multicultural Programming Board (MPB)

The Multicultural Programming Board signifies diversity in culture, thought, and the students that attend Augustana College. The purpose of this unique event programming board is to challenge that status quo, spark productive conversation, and eventually result in educating the Augustana community.

Leadership Academy

The goal of Leadership Academy is to help students grow and develop their leadership skills in engaging and inspiring ways. Leadership Academy also offers a special program, EMERGE, designated specifically for First-Year students during their first term at Augustana.

Greek Life

Augustana Greek Life has been around and active in the Augustana community since 1908! Greek letter organizations offer an academic support system, leadership opportunities, interaction with Augustana faculty and administrators, education and training through the Greek Life Educational Program Series, chances to give back through service projects in the Quad Cities communities, and life long friendships.
