Concordia College, Moorhead, Minn., looks forward to its return to as much in-person coursework as possible for fall 2021. Concordia’s fall plans are in step with Minnesota Department of Health guidelines and Minnesota’s recently announced approach to increase opportunities for in-person activity, given the state’s positive results with vaccination and downward case trends.

“One of the distinctive features of a Concordia education is the opportunity we provide for our students to learn together in community,” says Dr. Susan Larson, dean of the college. “Students do this in dialogue with each other and their professors in classrooms, laboratories, and studios, as they engage in research with professors and undertake community-based projects or participate in co-curricular experiences. We are eager to support more in-person learning in the fall semester so that we can bring together our students as a community of scholars, learning together to influence the affairs of the world.”

In addition to offering more fully in-person learning experiences, Concordia will increase the number of students living on-campus and increase the number of activities and events taking place on campus. We know on-campus living, dining, and ordinary interchanges deepen the educational experience for everyone. The college will also continue to meet the flexibility needs of its undergraduate and graduate students through online and hybrid offerings. Concordia’s fall semester will begin Aug. 26.
