Board of Regents
Did You Know?
Luther College at the University of Regina participates in Admission on the Spot events - campus tours, reduced application fees, and the relief of finding out you're accepted to your program right away!
Luther College welcomes students of all faiths, ethnicities, backgrounds, religions, genders, and sexual orientation.
Small classes = big advantages. As a federated college, Luther College classes are typically smaller. This allows for students to connect with their profs and classmates.
All programs at Luther College offer study abroad opportunities. As an affiliate of the U of R, we have partnerships with 450 universities across 70 different countries.
It pays to go to Luther College. Literally. Luther students are eligible for an additional $100,000 in scholarships, in addition to all of the awards available to them as U of R!
The Luther College Residence hosts multiple social events and programs throughout the year, such as Christmas Dinner, International Night, Mardi Gras, and Karaoke Night.
Luther College opened the first residence on campus in 1971, and is still a “home away from home” to students: meals, laundry, and lifelong friendship included.
Luther College offers Bundles and Bundles Plus programs! Bundles and Bundles Plus are groupings of courses hand-selected by our academic advisors to help set new students up for a successful first semester.

Regents are elected or ratified at the Luther College Corporation Meeting, which is held during the biennial national convention of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. The Luther College regents provide nominations to the delegates at the Corporation Meeting. Board members are elected for four-year terms.
Regular board meetings are held approximately six times during the academic year. In addition, there are several standing board committees that meet more frequently. These include: Academic & Administrative; Audit; Building & Facilities Renewal; Development; Executive; Finance; and Governance Committees.
The primary responsibilities of the board of regents are:
- To supervise the financial resources and assets of the College
- To ensure that the College remains faithful to its stated mission and values
- To develop long-range plans for the advancement of the institution and monitor the implementation of those plans
- To receive reports from the president, to review the performance of the president, and periodically, to select the president
Persons wishing to communicate with the Board are advised, in the first instance, to contact the President of Luther College, who is the normal ongoing contact between the College and the Board.
