Vision, Mission & Values


Luther College prepares students to be compassionate, creative, and critical thinkers, through academic excellence and a community of care that is rooted in our call to love and serve our neighbours.


Luther College makes transformative change for a more grace-filled, just, and joyful world.


Rooted and Open
We are rooted in the Lutheran intellectual tradition and open to insights from other religious, spiritual, and secular traditions. In our Canadian context, we feel especially called to recognize and value Indigenous worldviews, knowledge, and perspectives.


  • innovation, creativity, exploration, and critical thinking
  • the desire to do our best in everything that we do 

Compassion, Care and Stewardship

  • care for all entrusted to us — students, one another, our resources, and the world we live in

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

  • safety, acceptance, respect for all while valuing differences in individuals and among people(s)


  • honesty, transparency, and accountability

Strategic Themes

Luther College developed these five strategic themes following the development of the revised Vision, Mission and Values in 2022. The Luther Rose is at the center which highlights the fact that the Lutheran faith and tradition are at the centre of our identity, and are part of what makes us unique. You can read more about this in our Strategic Plan: Vision 2025.
