Useful resources

At Concordia University, our faith provides a strong foundation for everything we do, from our curricula, to how we teach, to how we support our students.

We are pleased to offer a variety of online faith and learning programs, as well as resources to help you learn more about the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. Access recordings and access handouts from previous Faith, Learning and Vocation programs and projects below.

Global Learning Outcome #1 - Christian Faith

Our graduates are grounded in the Christian faith while also recognizing other major worldviews and how they differ from a Christian understanding of the world.

Concordia's six Global 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. Read more about all six Global Learning Outcomes: link
