Diversity and Inclusion

As an institution of Lutheran higher education, Concordia University Texas is led by its mission of empowering students of all backgrounds to lead lives of critical thought, compassionate action and courageous leadership. In alignment with this mission, we believe that a commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity is a key component of becoming the premier university where the adventure of faith, learning and life-changing experiences leads to meaningful work. 

Concordia should be a place where people of all backgrounds can come together, reason together, think together, believe together, learn together, create together and succeed together. We are committed to diversity, inclusion, and equity because we are compelled by our purpose, our mission, our vision, our values, and because of our faith, a faith in which we are called by Christ to love and serve our neighbor. 

At Concordia University Texas our theology, history, and practice help to shape how we think about and live out this commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity. Because members of this community will have differing perspectives on this commitment, we also dedicate ourselves to dialogue, patience, empathy, and to practice our values of trust and courage.
