All Are Welcome

An Inclusive Community

No one here is an outsider. This is one of the most deeply held values in the Lutheran tradition. And its importance is evident on campus—our students come from more than 49 countries and embody a wide variety of faiths.

The Lutheran Education Experience

We encourage students to follow their own passion to uncover their purpose. This prepares them for a life of success in which they always offer their very best to others—family, community, and the world.

This happens as part of a diverse, open-minded, and challenging academic environment. The perspective you gain will allow you to lead a life filled with meaning far beyond the work you choose to do.


Our Commitment to Diversity

We firmly believe our culture is enhanced when individuals of diverse backgrounds and experiences become part of the University family and bring their talents and views to the academy.

At Cal Lutheran, we are committed to an inclusive learning and work environment that values individual differences and respects each person's dignity.

Creating Social Change Together

Our Center for Equality & Justice works to bring together organizations and individuals to collaborate for equitable social change.

Our goals are to support faculty and student research, build partnerships in the community, and inspire dialogue and action.

Together, we can make a real difference.
