To Lead and Serve
Concordia fosters a culture of responsible engagement with the community and the world with an emphasis of serving others. After students graduate, they'll have a strong sense of how to engage within the world continually throughout their life. Integrating unique learning experiences into a student's four-year Concordia experience is evidence of our long-running commitment to using a liberal arts foundation to prepare leaders for a world of change.
Concordia's mission highlights our commitment to the Lutheran academic tradition. These include:
- freedom to search for truth, with nothing off limits for inquiry and critique.
- education in the liberal arts as the best preparation for leadership.
- excellence in all we do.
- the engagement of faith and learning as a creative dialogue, where inquiry and scholarship enlighten religious life and faith practice enriches the educational experience.
- intellectual humility in the face of the paradoxes and ambiguities of life.
The Lutheran theological tradition emphasizes that we are all called to serve our neighbor and care for creation in response to God’s love.
