Interfaith at PLU

Because PLU is a university rooted in the tradition of Lutheran Higher Education we value interfaith engagement, learning and connection with our neighbor. We encourage students, faculty and staff to participate in interfaith experiences on campus and in our community.

For a Lutheran perspective on Interfaith work: Why Interfaith Work is Not a Luxury: Lutherans as Neighboring Neighbors by Martha E. Stortz.

Learn more about PLU Interfaith Advocates Program!  Applications for students are open each spring/summer.
