Our college values
All the ELCA colleges are centered on the same core values. These include a commitment to small class sizes, attention to individual students, delivery of financial aid and developing the whole person.
We also want to evaluate how well we are instilling these values and delivering these services. We recently completed a survey of our alumni, and alumni of flagship state universities to determine how effectively our programs are in helping us reach our goals. The affirmative responses from alumni (gold are Lutheran alumni, green are state university alumni) are indicated below for several key questions.
Small class sizes and personal attention
Personal development and community-building
Commitment to financial aid and four-year graduation
Development of long-term personal values
If these sound like the kinds of experiences that you would want for a young person you know, please visit the get more information page. We’ll send along more details about the transformative experiences they can have on our campuses.
