Mission, Values & Institutional Student Learning Outcomes


Concordia College New York is a Christian higher education community of learning where mutual respect flourishes, responsibility is developed and reverence for God is cultivated so that students can pursue lives of passion, purpose and service.



We are anchored in a living Lutheran heritage as we strive to follow Jesus Christ. We express this identity with an ethics-infused curriculum and a faith-informed community life.


As an academic community, we embrace hospitality, civility and respectful dialogue across differences; as an academic institution, we are committed to intellectual rigor as well as co-curricular and pedagogical experiences that are personalized, enduring and actionable.


Our community reflects diversity as we reach out with a globally engaging worldview capitalizing on the international destination that is the classroom of Metropolitan New York City. Providing access to networks of vocational success, full human flourishing becomes a possibility for our students, their families, and the world.


We embrace technological innovation. In our dynamic environment, we adapt our educational and business models in a manner that is responsive to the needs of our students.


We reinforce the formation of identity, leadership, integrity, and collaboration so that students, faculty, staff, and alumni may realize God’s calling in every life they touch.
