Embracing the mission

Concordia's student learning outcomes reflect the knowledge, skills, attitudes, competencies, and habits of mind that our students are expected to acquire. These outcomes highlight student learning at three levels: the overall university level, the department/major level; the core curriculum program level.

Concordia's student learning outcomes flow from our mission of helping students develop in mind, body and spirit in service to Christ in the Church and in the World.
