School Description

Concordia University Wisconsin, was established as Concordia College in 1881 by the Lutherans in Wisconsin. The College started out with 13 students, receiving instruction in the basement of Trinity Lutheran Church in downtown Milwaukee. In 1882, Concordia acquired a permanent campus between the State and Highland Streets. The Mequon campus is located 20 minutes from downtown Milwaukee on 200 acres of beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline. Four years later, it received a charter from the State of Wisconsin authorising it to offer classical, technical, and religious instruction to prepare students for the ministry of the Lutheran Church. Concordia offered high school and two years of a liberal arts college program initially but towards the late 60s and early 70s, established a lay ministry program for those who were interested in becoming teachers, deaconesses, or social workers in the Lutheran Church. It also added business and secretarial courses to its curriculum.

In 1978 Concordia was authorised by the Missouri Synod to become a 4-year accredited college providing education in teacher education, nursing, medical assistant, social work, and engineering. In 1982, the Missouri Synod purchased the former campus of the School Sisters of Notre Dame in Mequon, Wisconsin and 1989 the college received university status. Today, 4300 students are enrolled at its main/Mequon campus and 375 more students at additional classroom locations.

            Fantastic Higher Learning EstablishmentAs a recent 2014 graduate, I am very pleased with where I chose to study for my undergraduate degree. Concordia is such a friendly, loving, and warm place to spend 4 years of your life, and more. The classrooms are small, with professors who genuinely care about you and know your name. I am still connected with professors that I know I will keep in touch with for a lifetime. I will continue to live through the mission statement of Concordia because I had such a positive experience and will forever be proud to be a Concordian. I recommend this college to everyone I met, thank you for making my college experience one of a kind!

            Adult learner focusedConcordia's adult learner focus is untouchable. I have received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Concordia because the school appreciates and understands the needs of a working and experienced professional. I just completed my Master’s degree through the flexible e-learning option and couldn’t be more pleased. It was hard work, however through it all I had the support and guidance from skilled, knowledgeable and understanding staff.
