Karl Tiefenbach (HS’73, U’76)

Karl Tiefenbach, in his third term of service, served on the Board of Regents from 2003-2013 and rejoined in 2015. He is semi-retired from a thirty-two year career in petroleum refining at the Co-op Refinery Complex in Regina, Saskatchewan, and his professional interests are finance and governance.

His connection with Luther College is broad and long-standing. He is an alumnus of Luther College High School (HS'73) and University (U'76), and his wife and their children are also Luther College alumni: Kathy (HS’76), Rick (HS'01), Sarah (HS'03), Taylor (HS'05, U'10), and Joey (HS'05, U'10).

Karl is proud to serve on the Board of Regents because he identifies Luther College as an institution that “provides a safe, supportive environment for students to explore who they are and to recognize their own potential to contribute to a better world.”
