Augsburg College (now Augsburg University) has a mission that those who work there really grab ahold of - this is a great thing. Unfortunately, the desire to 'do good' often outweighs planning, thoughtful financial management, and assessment of what is necessary and what is 'nice to do.' If Augsburg could focus on what's most important, it would have the resources it needs for its core work - educating a diverse group of students. Stick to the knitting and stop trying to do all things!
Great mission, great buy-in to mission, thoughtful hard working staff
Always short of finances, some students not fully served because of scarce resources, too much attention to non-value added
