The mission of the Scandinavian Cultural Center at Pacific Lutheran University is “to engage Nordic and Nordic-American heritage and highlight customs, traditions, and contemporary societies with understanding towards other cultures.”

The Center is located at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma Washington, in recognition of the University’s Nordic heritage. We are open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 11am-3pm and Sundays 1-4pm.

We also welcome new members as a great way to stay up to date with our events and to become involved in our programming.
