From the Office of the President

Welcome to Concordia University Ann Arbor

Choosing where to attend college is among the first “most important decisions” you will make in your adult life. You’ll face countless others, but few will have as much impact as where you choose to invest your college years.

It’s a big decision. Our prayer is that you are led to the place where you will best thrive. And certainly, we would like Concordia to be your choice.

Every person at CUAA is committed to your success. In this supportive community, you will develop your knowledge and character to achieve the unique potential that God has created you to reach. You will access a real and rigorous higher education that sets you up for a successful career. More importantly, you will access a genuine, purposeful higher education that sets you apart for a successful life.

Finally, as a Lutheran university, we care about you. Your future matters to us, and we want to prepare you to serve and lead uniquely, with integrity and compassion that will create better communities, workplaces, neighborhoods, schools, hospitals … a better world that is impacted by your talents, wherever life may lead you.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know CUAA. Hopefully some of your questions will be answered throughout this website. To truly understand the value of a CUAA education, we invite you to engage with our admission counselors, tour the campus, and meet current students and professors.

And most of all, we look forward to welcoming you to the Cardinal Family.

Rev. Patrick T. Ferry, Ph.D.
University President
