In August, the College announced support of the “Vote No” work of Minnesotans United for All Families to prevent passage of a Minnesota Constitutional amendment that would define marriage. The College is proud to stand with five of Minnesota’s synods of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, nearly 600 businesses and organizations, and
150 ordained church leaders. The College’s decision to support the “Vote No” effort is grounded in the commitment of the College to end discrimination; its academic tradition of critical and humble inquiry and of modeling and fostering civil discourse; and its Lutheran heritage, which requires that we build inclusive communities, learn from the other, and seek social justice.
