Educating for lives of service

Lutheran education values life in the world. The church’s emphasis on stewardship of the Earth and on educating for lives of service dictates a practical concern that looks beyond the university to the needs of local and global communities. In the Lutheran tradition, all of life is vocation. People are called upon to live as persons of faith with deeply held values, and a commitment to service—whatever their chosen profession.

Fully one-third of PLU graduates enter the helping professions—teaching, nursing, social work, medicine, parish ministry—often carrying the ethic of service to the highest levels of achievement. Graduates pursuing careers outside the service sector continue to devote time to their communities.

This holistic, integrated approach to education remains the cornerstone of Pacific Lutheran University.
