Spiritual Expression

No matter what your religious background, you are invited to explore your faith and beliefs at Augsburg, where spiritual inquiry is very much a part of everyday life.

As a university of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Augsburg is shaped by Christian values. Yet while Augsburg is a Lutheran university, students come from many different faith traditions. An attitude of openness and acceptance is promoted throughout the university.

Through the Search for Meaning and Keystone courses, students consider how God, faith, and service fit into their lives. The exploration of the Christian concept of vocation is woven throughout the curriculum and the life of the University.

The student-led Campus Ministry Leadership Team sponsors retreats, community projects, outreach to youth groups, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and a congregational youth basketball tournament.

The optional 20-minute daily chapel service is a time for ecumenical reflection and exchange of ideas for all in the Augsburg community. An informal communion service is held each Wednesday evening.

And there’s always someone to turn to for spiritual guidance during tough times. Augsburg’s skilled pastoral ministry staff are available to Augsburg’s students.
