A letter from the president

Dear CUAA graduates,

Concordia’s alumni fulfill our mission, and the day-to-day interaction of students with faculty and staff mentors is part of that process. The Concordia experience forms and shapes people, and as our University mission statement says, “helps students to develop in mind, body, and spirit.” But that intellectual, physical, and spiritual growth is not an end in itself. It’s not simply “mission accomplished.”

Concordia’s Christian higher education is intended to prepare graduates, as the Mission Statement concludes,“for service to Christ in the Church and the world.” Thus, Concordia’s mission cannot be fulfilled apart from you and your lives of service within your families, workplaces, churches, and communities. We remain interested in you and are eager to stay connected. Concordia is your alma mater and you are Concordia’s legacy to the world—our dedicated alumni!


Rev. Patrick T. Ferry, Ph.D. 

Dear CUAA Alumnus

Whether your memories of Concordia go back to CUAA’s inaugural year or to last year’s graduation, your Concordia experience can continue. Our goal is to provide meaningful opportunities for you to get and stay connected to Concordia and our diverse and impressive community of alumni, parents, students, and faculty. The focus of alumni events is twofold: networking and continuous learning. Whether you attend a networking event or Homecoming or use the facilities or services, we hope you discover something new and make a personal connection.

Please contact us if you have ideas about staying connected. We look forward to working with you and seeing you at future events, on campus and off. We invite you to explore our website pages to learn how you can become involved.

Director of Donor & Alumni Relations
