Christian Instruction

CUW is a Lutheran university that offers educational opportunities grounded in the teachings of Christ. At Concordia we

  • Integrate faith and stewardship into 70+ majors and 50 minors
  • Emphasize Christian growth and maturity along with achieving academic goals
  • Offer a variety of on and off-campus ministry and service opportunities

Personal Attention

CUW offers the kind of personal attention that students expect and deserve:

  • Experienced professors (not junior-level teaching assistants)

You can be confident that your young adult will be challenged to grow intellectually and be given the guidance they need to make the most of their college experience.
