Concordia University offers students, faculty, and the community opportunities to participate with us as we cultivate a community of meaningful, Christ-centered belonging. Below, learn more about several of our key initiatives.

Special Committee on Diversity and Belonging

In 2020, Concordia University established the special committee as part of our comprehensive strategic planning effort. The committee exists to ensure CUWAA achieves its foundational responsibility to meaningfully increase opportunities for all Concordians to encounter meaningful engagement and to discover and use their God-given gifts as part of the Concordia community. This group represents a cross-section of academic, administrative, and operational leaders and convenes monthly to achieve its work for CUWAA.

Office of Multicultural Engagement

Established in 2019, the OME operates on both the Wisconsin and the Ann Arbor campuses. The OME advances the value for diversity as a transformational outcome within the context of the Lutheran Christian university. The OME regularly offers programs, training, events, and activities that equip students, faculty, and staff to be catalysts for Christ-led change within their contexts and communities.

Black Student Union

Concordia University Black Student Union (BSU) exists to help all students develop in mind, body, and spirit for service to Christ in the Church and the world. We do this by intentionally setting up a support system allowing students space to learn, teach, vent, give back to the community, be challenged, and get their cultural needs met.

Center for Equity and Leadership

Launching in June of 2021, the CEL partners with Concordia University to influence the professional practices of K-12 educators on a national level; equipping schools and leaders with the expertise, support, and research required to dismantle legacy systems of inequity in service of historically marginalized people and the greater good of society.

Concordia International Center

Concordia welcomes hundreds of students from all over the word. Our diverse global students are a significant part of the Concordia community and the CIC is our international campus hub.
