Letter from the Dean of Students

As the Dean of Students, my goal is to facilitate the development of students in mind, body, and spirit by providing opportunities which create a purposeful, open, just, disciplined, caring, and celebratory community. Our shared campus goal is to serve Christ in the Church and the World. I believe you’ll join me in that goal, and make it your goal for life.

It is our hope that as a student you will take advantage of the multiple opportunities that challenge, inspire, and expand your worldview through connections with faculty, staff, classmates, and the surrounding Ann Arbor area. We encourage you to explore and grow in your faith development, volunteer opportunities, leadership, and activities offered at Concordia.

We believe you will live up to a very high standard of personal behavior, respecting the community standards inherent to Lutheran higher education. We are willing to serve you in any way we can so that you will learn to make wise and responsible decisions based upon communication with others and our loving God.

As a fellow Cardinal, I invite you to drop by my office in the Student Services Center building to say "Hi!”, share highlights of your CUAA experience, seek advice, or present any concerns.

See you on campus!
Rev. John Rathje
Dean of Students
