Care is a central component of the PLU mission “to educate students for lives of thoughtful inquiry, service, leadership and care–for other people, for their communities, and for the earth.” This vow to care, rooted deeply in our Lutheran heritage, requires action and an unequivocal commitment to fight for social justice.
