This Is Us

Mission Statement

The purpose of Concordia College is to influence the affairs of the world by sending into society thoughtful and informed men and women dedicated to the Christian life.

Cobber Connections


With more than 35,000 alumni across the nation and the globe, the Cobber community extends well beyond the borders of our campus.

We call it the worldwide Cobber network and its benefits include access to mentors, leads on internships and jobs, and lots of expert advice. Plus, many loyal alumni support the college financially each year — which helps to offset the cost of attendance for current and future students.

The students, faculty, and staff make the community at Concordia so warm and welcoming. I value relationships, so having a community like Concordia’s has been a highlight of my time here.

Intellect + Faith

As a college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Concordia is strongly rooted in the tradition of free inquiry and dialogue. We believe that our faith liberates us to question assumptions and examine information with a critical eye. We welcome students from a variety of faith and nonfaith backgrounds, and we value the diverse perspectives that everyone brings to our learning community.


Recognizing that a transformative education calls us to learn across difference, Concordia has established several priorities to affirm diversity of identities, experiences, and perspectives as a condition of institutional excellence, leading all who study and work here to honor difference with respectful understanding and to practice courageous citizenship for the common good.
