President's Welcome

Concordia is a wonderful place to go to school. We provide our students with a relevant and meaningful higher education experience within a Christian context. Our students are challenged in the classroom to reach high academic standards while integrating faith and learning to prepare them to be leaders in the home, workplace, and in their communities. As you investigate this catalog and, more importantly, talk with the faculty and students, you will see that we create a learner-centered environment with an emphasis on lifelong learning and service to the communities in which we live. As a result, as a part of their academic program, every student participates in a practical experience directly related to their chosen field of study and profession. You will be building your résumé as you earn your degree.

Concordia is a faith-based institution which has graduated thousands of students who are making a difference in our world. Concordia is making a difference in the lives of its students and our broader community. A Concordia education provides students with the experiences and skills to become leaders and make a difference in the world that needs help and hope.

I invite you to join us and transform your life and the lives of those around you.

Charles E. Schlimpert, Ph.D.
President
