As an employee of Concordia College, you play a vital role in Concordia's mission to "influence the affairs of the world by sending into society thoughtful informed men and women dedicated to the Christian life."
The students we serve benefit greatly from the rigorous academic programs and caring environment created at Concordia. Students appreciate and fondly remember the personal ways in which faculty and staff members have made a difference in their days at Concordia.
The Employee Handbook serves as a reference to guidelines, procedures, benefits and general information pertinent to Concordia College employees. All employees are responsible for accessing the Handbook and complying with the contents therein.
This handbook is not intended to create, nor to be interpreted as creating a contract, between Concordia College and any of its employees. Concordia retains the right to make changes at any time. This handbook replaces all previous employee handbooks. Departments may have additional policies/procedures that are specific to a department. When the Employee Handbook and Department Handbook conflict, the Employee Handbook supersedes.
The handbook is maintained on the College’s self-service site at cport.cord.edu to provide an avenue for maintaining current information for employees. Employees will receive notification when changes occur to the handbook. It is the employee’s responsibility to read and abide by those changes. A printed hardcopy is available by contacting human resources.
