About PLU

Ángel González, Resident Director for Ordal and Stuen Halls: “As a native of Lós Ángeles, CA, working at PLU has thus far provided me opportunities to challenge myself and grow as a professional. Our department is very mission and student development theory driven, giving me the opportunity to really put into practice the tools acquired during my graduate studies.”


PLU seeks to educate students for lives of thoughtful inquiry, service, leadership and care-for other people, for their communities and for the earth.


As a university of the first rank, Pacific Lutheran University seeks to maximize the achievement of its mission and become an internationally renowned model of the New American University, integrating a distinctive liberal arts college with one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier centers for professional education.
