Concordia's Commitment

Concordia University is committed to building a community where Christ is LORD and all are loved.

Diversity and belonging at Concordia University

Concordia University affirms the worth and dignity of every person. The love of Christ Jesus compels us to love others without exception. As scholars, students, and educators, we value the differences in people and believe these enrich the Christian university, where together we develop in mind, body, and spirit for lives of service and leadership throughout the Church and world. We commit to building a community where every person encounters opportunities to discover and use their unique, distinct God-given gifts.

Our vision

Concordia University is an uncommon community of students, faculty, alumni, and staff who are gifted by grace and ever-preparing to live out our purpose to serve Christ in the Church and world.

CUW Initiatives

Concordia is community, and an increasingly diverse one. The ability to relate well and warmly with all people is a skill that each of us can develop. And it is effort we are glad to make. God has given us each other. He Calls us in Christ to love our neighbors; those we are most like and those very different from us. As we think together and walk together in our diverse community, let’s give thanks for it – for Jesus’ sake.

By the Numbers

We are a learning community at the junction of knowledge and Christian faith, where students develop their God-given potential and prepare to lead uncommon lives of higher professional purpose for the betterment of self and community. All of the schools, programs, and initiatives of the university are guided by shared fidelity to this central promise.
