Concordia University is a Lutheran liberal arts university that prepares leaders for the transformation of society. We are dedicated to the premise that spirited intellectual inquiry reinforces a commitment to justice, compassion and moral integrity. Concordia is a place of challenge and support, where assumptions are tested and encouragement given, where individual beliefs encounter the ideas of others and become stronger for the contest, where relationships go beyond the superficial and matter for a lifetime. Students are known here. Welcomed. Stimulated. Involved. Challenged beyond belief and changed because teaching is our ministry.
