Concordia University is a private liberal arts university in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Affiliated with the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod and a university within the Concordia University system, we're proud of the benefits a faith-based education brings to our students.
Our small size and low student-to-faculty ratio foster close relationships between students and faculty and create a supportive, caring community. Our 187-acre campus, located on the banks of the Huron River, creates a beautiful and safe environment and is just minutes from the restaurants, cultural activities, and resources of downtown Ann Arbor.
