Smudge on Campus

During the Winter term of 2015, the Augustana Campus Executive Council adopted a Smudging policy, in consultation with the University of Alberta's Facilities and Operations. The policy itself explains the context for smudge on campus, and can be accessed here (PDF). A Smudging Authorization form is available for Augustana Campus employees in MyWeb.

We invite anyone who is interested in smudging on campus to use the Multi-Faith Prayer Room located by the Chapel in the Faith and Life Lounge, and to read the policy. 

The policy was drafted by a task force comprised of current and former students, staff, and faculty. You may direct your questions to the Aboriginal Engagement Committee - Daniel Sims (dcsims@ualberta.ca), or the Aboriginal Student Advisor (augustana.aso@ualberta.ca).
