Intellect and Faith
A Concordia education has always been a working partnership between intellect and faith. Our graduates are not only experts in their fields, but leaders in their communities and churches – well-rounded men and women with impressive academic credentials, a global perspective and a firm dedication to the Christian life of service.
We challenge our students to use their considerable talent and education for doing good in the world. To prepare them for lives of leadership and service in the global community, we’ve created a one-of-a-kind “globalized” curriculum enhanced by one of the best study abroad and world language programs in the country.
Concordia is equally dedicated to providing expansive opportunities for students to engage in spiritual expression and examine issues of faith in an open, inclusive environment. Campus Ministry is the center of spiritual life, offering daily chapel worship services, student-led praise services and countless opportunities for faith study and outreach within the Fargo-Moorhead community and around the country.
The Dovre Center for Faith and Learning seeks to encourage and sustain discussion on issues relating to faith and learning. A primary mission of the center is to offer development and research opportunities to Concordia faculty, who model and embody the connection between faith and learning to our students. Programs include annual summer workshops to introduce new faculty and staff to the Lutheran tradition, in-depth workshops on various issues, focused research, an annual faculty lecture and the hosting of scholars on campus.
