Concordia is a college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America with ownership vested in the Concordia College Corporation, the ELCA membership in the Corporation Territory, which means the Eastern North Dakota Synod, Western Minnesota Synod, the Montana Synod, the Northeastern Minnesota Synod, the Northwestern Minnesota Synod, and the Minnesota counties of Big Stone, Stevens, Pope, Stearns, and Benton in the Southwestern Minnesota Synod of the ELCA.
The Corporation Assembly elects the members of the Board of Regents. Arguably the most important responsibility of the Board of Regents is the election of the president of the college. Dr. William J. Craft became the 11th president of Concordia College in 2011.
The president’s leadership team, the cabinet, comprises the provost and dean of the college, vice president for Enrollment, vice president for Advancement, vice president for Finance, vice president for International Development/executive director of the Concordia Language Villages, chief information officer, senior director for Communications and Marketing, campus pastor, and senior associate to the president.
