Get involved

Whether you want to broaden your horizons and try something new or build upon skills and interests you already have, joining a club or organization is one of the best ways to do it. With dozens of offerings at CUW, there’s bound to be at least one group that matches your interests. If not, feel free to start one of your own!

Most of the clubs at Concordia have been chartered by the Student Government Association, which means they receive funding and are overseen by a student executive board. SGA gets its funding from the $40 Student Government Program Fee that full-time students pay. In addition to overseeing clubs, SGA works with faculty, campus ministry, and the university’s administration to represent students in all aspects of life at CUW and make sure the student voice is heard.

For information about SGA clubs, or if you’re interested in getting involved with SGA, contact members at SGA@cuw.edu.
