Concordia University is one of nine colleges or universities in the Concordia University System, an entity of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.
Concordia University is a Lutheran higher education community committed to helping students develop in mind, body, and spirit for service to Christ in the Church and the world.
Our vision is to be well known nationally and internationally as a premier Lutheran Christian university, widely recognized for meaningful integration of faith and learning. Our alumni will assume significant servant leadership responsibilities in the Church and communities across the nation and around the world.
Concordia's Vision is Vigorously Pursued in Four Critical Ways:
We are a Faith and Learning Centered Higher Education Community.
Concordia students learn in innovative Christ-centered environments that are guided by comprehensive assessment. Our faculty, staff and University administrators are role models and servant leaders. Our Christian faculty excel in teaching and mentoring, and successfully connect to faith to learning. Our academic programs are rigorous and diverse, consistent with the needs of the Church and our communities.
We Plan for Purposeful Growth.
Students grow as they develop in mind, body and spirit. Concordia grows as we reach more people with our mission. Our campuses, facilities, human and financial resources, and infrastructure expand to support a robust student experience in a welcoming environment that results in the professional, social, academic and spiritual formation of all Concordians.
We Make an Impact Through Service and Leadership.
Concordia impacts the Church and the world, developing globally-minded citizens who transform lives, influence communities, and value their neighbors near and far, through Christ-like service and leadership.
We Champion Access and Opportunity for All Learners.
We provide access to the highest value higher education experience. As a result, Concordia students discover and develop their vocations. Rigorous assessment of our academic offerings, university services, delivery systems, and market and organizational performance result in continuous improvement of the Concordia experience, which enables our students to pursue and persist in their chosen career paths.
