Board Bio Details
Did You Know?
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.
Luther College students pay the same tuition and fees as other University of Regina students.
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 offers the best of both worlds: a smaller college environment with all the benefits of a larger university.
ALL U of R students including Luther students can take Luther courses.
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 students can register in Arts, Science, or Media, Art, and Performance degree programs. Luther students are U of R students and receive a U of R degree.
Lyndon Carlson, in his first term of service, has served on the Board of Regents since 2016. He also retired in 2016 from a life-long career with Farm Credit Canada (FCC), where he served as Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.
Prior to starting with FCC in 1982, Lyndon attended the University of Saskatchewan, graduating with a degree in Agricultural Economics. His love of agriculture is not surprising, considering he grew up on a mixed grain-beef farm near Buchanan, Saskatchewan.
Lyndon’s contributions to the Agri-business community – both provincially in Saskatchewan, and nationally in Canada – have been recognized in a number of ways: in 2012, he was named the Canadian Agri-Marketing Association’s Agri-Marketer of the Year. He was also awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in 2012 for service to Canada. The Jubilee award was a recognition for the many years of service to 4-H Canada, during which he served on the Canadian 4-H Council, and acted as President of the Canadian 4-H Foundation. He is also currently the Treasurer for the Saskatchewan Synod of the ELCIC.
Lyndon believes that “we all live to give” and refers to this opportunity to serve on Luther’s Board of Regents as “an honour.” He is especially proud of giving back to his community through his service as a Board member because he has a great respect the way in which Luther excels at cultivating students who will go out into the world and make a real difference: “Luther has a proud history of shaping young people into great leaders. I am excited about the future and positive role Luther will continue to hold in our community.”
