Putting Luther’s theories into practice

Inside Lutheran universities is the intellectual process that defines the best academic experiences. Luther was a professor himself, as well as an Augustinian friar. His intellectual work, in combination with his religious beliefs, led to the key principles that make up the backbone of Lutheran education. These include:

  • Learning to question
  • Embracing science and leveraging technology for good
  • Discovering the gifts God has given you and sharing them in service to others
  • A rigorous education for all

Concordia provides the perfect environment for exploring your God-given talents and passions, and unearthing your potential.
