California Lutheran University's Commitment to DEIJ

University Mission: The mission of the university is to educate leaders for a global society who are strong in character and judgment, confident in their identity and vocation, and committed to service and justice. 

Aligned with our University mission, the faculty and staff at Cal Lutheran are called and empowered to challenge barriers that limit human potential as we prepare students to lead a life of meaning and purpose in pursuit of socially-just communities.

We advocate for equity in our policies, practices, and programs. Diversity is essential to academic rigor, decision-making, social enrichment, and spiritual growth and these differences and multiple perspectives are key to the fulfillment of our mission to "educate leaders for a global society."
