The Value of a CUW Education

How do you value an education? We think it’s about what you learn. And at Concordia University Wisconsin you’ll learn more than how to earn a living. You’ll learn how to live a life.

Intangible Advantages

Long after your days at CUW are over, the friends you’ve made here, the skills you’ve mastered, and the experiences you’ve had – both inside and outside the classroom – will continue to influence the choices you make and the successes you celebrate.

Some things can’t be quantified in dollars and cents, like learning from professors who value each individual student, or knowing that God is as close as a prayer or a chapel service.

At CUW you’ll learn how to be more than teachers, nurses and accountants; you’ll learn how to live a Christian life of service, compassion and leadership.
