School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):

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.

Within its distinctly Christian environment and its academic community dedicated to excellence, Concordia University serves as a liberal arts university preparing men and women for a life of service in the church and in the world.
