About our annual Heritage Day
Augsburg was founded in 1869 by Norwegian Lutheran immigrants seeking to educate leaders for church and society. Augsburg’s Lutheran heritage — its “faith and values” — continues to shape its mission in the midst of a religiously diverse campus and neighborhood. Since 2005, Augsburg College has celebrated its founding by inviting notable guests to speak on subjects related to Augsburg’s roots in the 16th Century Reformation of the Christian Church. Heritage Day themes are aligned with the themes of the Luther Decade initiative. The Augsburg College Heritage Day (also known as “Founders Day”) is a joint venture of the Augsburg College Christensen Center for Vocation, the Augsburg College Religion Department, and the Augsburg College Office of the President.
