ELCA colleges and universities are dedicated to providing students with the best education possible. We offer residential, liberal arts experiences that welcome students from all backgrounds and beliefs. With an emphasis on maintaining small class sizes and low professor-to-student ratios, ELCA colleges and universities provide close-knit communities that allow students to have meaningful discussions that challenge them to imagine how they will change the world.
Rigorous Classes. Diverse Perspectives.
ELCA colleges and universities believe in giving students opportunities to experience learning beyond the classroom walls, both locally and globally. Through these opportunities students gain essential skills and perspectives to serve others as they hone their leadership skills. Study abroad programs allow students to enhance their education through culturally immersive experiences. Internship programs give students the opportunity to apply their education to the real world, helping them to navigate the direction in which they want to take their career.
Explore the world. Discover your purpose.
We believe there is more to education than academics. Students on our campuses have a multitude of opportunities to get involved with activities that pique their interest and serve the communities and people around them. From competitive athletics to interest clubs and intramurals, ELCA colleges and universities offer students a wide range of activities to meet the diverse passions of all students.
Supporting passions. Developing leaders.
Deeply rooted in our Lutheran heritage is the importance of community involvement through service and stewardship. While attending ELCA colleges and universities, students are provided with ample opportunities to explore their new surroundings while giving back to the community. We believe these experiences prepare students for a lifetime of global impact.
