Gain a Sense of Purpose
At Concordia, we believe that a great college should do more than prepare you with lifelong career advantages. A Concordia education develops your global competence, character and compassion – inspiring you to serve the world’s greatest needs. Our BREW concept is much more than an educational theme – it's a way of life here.
Concordia students learn to BREW every day. And BREWing isn't simply limited to what you experience in our nationally recognized study away programs. Every course here challenges you to discover connections between learning and how to become more responsibly engaged in the world. In a biology class, for example, you might discuss the ethical ramifications of research in genetics. In an English course, you might write a paper about the moral themes of a classic work of literature and how they relate to contemporary societal issues.
Learn to Lead and Serve
Beyond the classroom, you’ll find many ways to BREW. Your Concordia education begins with a service experience at a local organization. Your commitment to serving others will grow from there throughout your four years as you engage in activities such as Relay for Life, tutor at local schools, develop vaccines for impoverished communities, study micro economies in India and more.
Concordia’s Habitat for Humanity chapter sends student volunteers across the nation and the world to build homes and playgrounds. Through Justice Journeys, students explore social justice issues in places like Seattle, New York City, Chicago, Santa Fe, Jamaica, Guatemala and Mexico.
When you graduate, you’ll have a strong sense of how you can use your talents for leading a world of change. And you will continue to BREW throughout your life.
