History of Forward Together Lecture

Did You Know?

  • 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.

  • Luther College offers the best of both worlds: a smaller college environment with all the benefits of a larger university.

  • The Luther College Residence is a great place for student athletes; it’s conveniently located and comes with a great meal plan.

  • The Luther Library has over 18,000 items in its collection, 3,000 books checked out per year, and 6,000 students who come through its door per month.

  • 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.

  • 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 students can register in Arts, Science, or Media, Art, and Performance degree programs. All degrees are awarded by the U of R.

History of the Forward Together Lecture

The Forward Together Lecture is an annual lecture series established in March 2009 by presidents Dr. Vianne Timmons (University of Regina), Dr. Bruce Perlson (Luther College), Fr. Benjamin Fiore, S.J., (Campion College) and Charles Pratt (First Nations University of Canada). The purpose of the Lecture is to highlight the joint commitment of the four institutions to a common academic and social purpose that promotes inclusiveness, understanding, social justice, and human rights. The Lecture is meant to appeal to a general audience and broaden the University's community outreach.
