Concordia University is an uncommon community of students, faculty, alumni, and staff who are gifted by grace and ever-preparing to live out our purpose to serve Christ in the Church and world.

Because we believe in God’s creative and purposeful design for every human life, the Lutheran Christian university naturally welcomes and nurtures the widest possible array of talent, ability, and experience. We welcome diversity not as a value in and of itself, but as an outcome; borne out of our belief that every person possesses worth bestowed by God. When we live values for individual worth, dignity, and difference, diversity results.

Diversity enhances the achievement, and ultimately the fulfillment of Concordia’s educational mission. And so, we commit ourselves to increase opportunities on our campuses and in our classrooms where all people encounter meaningful engagement and discover and use their unique, God-given gifts.
