    Concordia’s Main Campus In Mequon

    CUW’s longstanding commitment of providing a value-centered education continued this past academic year, as total enrollment approached 8,000 and the latest physical addition to the main campus – a 274-bed residence hall – was dedicated.


    Professors at the 200-acre university that has been a part of the Mequon community since 1983 reinforce ethics in the classroom, along with promoting intellectual development for an individual’s growth and well-being. Campus transformation persists to meet the growing needs of the student body as well as the community. Robust growth in the School of Business Administration continues, and health care majors including Nursing, Physical Therapy and Pre-Pharmacy that utilize a holistic approach to medicine and are based on strong spiritual concepts remain strong.  New master’s programs in Physician Assistant and Athletic Training entered their second year.


    Kapco Park, situated on the northeast part of a campus that hugs the Lake Michigan shoreline, is home to both the CUW Falcons and the Lakeshore Chinooks, a Northwoods Wooden Bat League Team that plays 35 home games each summer. Grandstand seating for more than 1,100 fans, with a stadium capacity approaching 2,500, a concession stand, and a children’s playground area makes for an exciting environment to watch baseball. Adjacent to the baseball stadium is Concordia’s Center For Environmental Stewardship, which maintains a strong partnership with the City of Mequon, The Mequon Nature Preserve and The Milwaukee Audubon Society among other organizations.


    Seventy undergraduate majors and 22 graduate programs are currently offered, including a Global MBA and doctorate programs in Physical Therapy, Pharmacy and Nursing Practice. The School of Pharmacy is only the second such school in Wisconsin and graduated its “Genesis” class of 67 in May. There are also myriad online learning and flexible, accelerated learning opportunities at one of nine off-campus centers in Milwaukee, Kenosha, Waukesha, Appleton, Green Bay, Beloit, Madison and St. Louis.


    Undergraduates are challenged to become a part of the vibrant, campus community, as they are offered numerous ways to meet other students, tap into interests outside their majors and discover their leadership potential. A bluff amphitheatre along the half-mile shoreline and a sand beach for bonfires enables students to relax from their studies. Twenty-four NCAA Division III intercollegiate sports, fine arts choices in music and drama, and numerous clubs and organizations are offered at Concordia, whose mission is “A Lutheran higher education community committed to helping students develop in mind, body, and spirit for service to Christ in the Church and the World.” 

    The 133-year-old University, affiliated with The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, was founded on Milwaukee’s near west side at historic Trinity Lutheran Church on 9th and Highland.
