Well known for its sprawling 200-acre campus on the shore of Lake Michigan in suburban Mequon, Concordia University Wisconsin’s administrators have engaged in a mission that inspires its students to stand apart from the crowd and Live an Uncommon Life. Since each undergraduate brings unique talents to campus, attention is focused on helping them find their “voice” in today’s world. They develop a mission mentality, as a distinctive curriculum where faith and knowledge intertwine is taught by professors who espouse values and ethics. On August 1, the 41,000 square foot Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center was dedicated, which will house CUW’s thriving Batterman School of Business and serve as a hub for innovation, entrepreneurship, and transformational learning. Undergraduates have an option of eight residence halls, including two with lake views and balconies. “Concordia University Wisconsin is so much more than just earning a degree,” asserts Rev. Dr. Patrick T. Ferry, president. “It is about being part of a bigger community that shares uncommon purpose and values.”



Professors in Concordia University Wisconsin’s six schools are highly accessible to students at the main campus and all of the off-campus, accelerated learning centers.
