Who We Are
Did You Know?
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.
Luther College offers year-round campus and residence tours as well as one-on-one enrollment counselling.
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 welcomes students of all faiths, ethnicities, backgrounds, religions, genders, and sexual orientation.
Every single degree program at Luther College offers an optional experiential learning component; gain real world experience and get paid while you go to school!
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 students can sign up for the UR Guarantee program - get a guaranteed job after you graduate!
Luther College offers the best of both worlds: a smaller college environment with all the benefits of a larger university.
Who We Are
Luther College at the University of Regina (LCUR) – Who are we?
With a maximum enrollment of around 1,200 students, LCUR is committed to retaining the personal atmosphere, individual attention, and sense of community that only a small university can offer. Informed by a progressive understanding of Christianity, our intimate community, combined with the resources and faculty at U of R, provide students with unique opportunities in undergraduate education. We specialize in the education of Arts; Science; and Media, Art, and Performance (formerly Fine Arts) and provide the highest quality of teaching and foster outstanding research within the humanities, social sciences, fine arts, and sciences.
Explanation of Federation
In 1971, Luther College brought its university program into a federation with the University of Regina (U of R) in order to provide expanded choices for students.
Academic integration with a leading university means:
- Luther College students can take courses from other federated colleges (Campion College, FNUniv) and from the U of R.
- Federated college students take programs established by the University Senate and receive degrees from the U of R. (Luther College is a full member of the University Senate.)
- Eligible U of R and other federated college students can take Luther College classes.
- Luther students have access to all of the financial aid and student support programs of the U of R, as well as all courses and instructional support.
- Federated colleges compliment the University Registrar's Office by offering personalized academic counselling.
- Federated college faculty augment the teaching resources of University departments. A federated college makes the U of R that much more accessible for those who want to study in a smaller community of students and scholars.
- Luther assists students in adjusting to the atmosphere of the larger urban centre and academic campus when they are part of a small, personalized atmosphere.
- Luther College emphasises interdisciplinary studies.
- Federated college libraries complement University holdings by maintaining their own specialized collection of books, journals, computers, and e-resources.
- Luther complements the University's Counselling Services by providing chaplains for counselling services.
- Special student support services are available, including student orientations, study skills seminars, writing workshops, peer support programs, student loans assistance, and special scholarships and bursaries.
Federated colleges are administratively and financially independent of the U of R.
