On Wednesday, February 17, Dr. Paul Pribbenow joined the LF Town Hall to share with us how institutions like Universities can look into the past and challenge long held assumptions in order to shape the future. As President of Augsburg University for the last 15 years, Dr. Pribbenow has led the University to engage the city of Minneapolis in ways that benefit both students and their neighbors.

We were also joined by Melody Rodriguez, Director of Proyecto Mole, a member of the LF Mentoring Initiative. Melody was recently recognized by MENTOR National with the Mentoring Lifetime Achievement Award, alongside fellow honoree Senator Corey Booker.

What book, movie, quote, or tv show has most shaped your understanding of leadership or the city?   

A quote that has shaped my understanding of leadership and the city is, “Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.”

While the amount of work there is to do to transform cities is great, this quote reminds me that we are freed from having to complete it all, though our obligation to continue remains. We may never see a huge transformation in our lifetime. The work stretches far beyond us. However, this does not make our acts of faithfulness in the day to day less significant, no matter how small they may seem.
