Chuck Niederriter: Religious Diversity at a Lutheran College

Posted on June 11th, 2016 by

We may be affiliated with the Lutheran church, have Lutheran chaplains, and chapel services, but we are also a very diverse and welcoming community where people of all faiths or no faith can feel comfortable.

Excerpted from Rooted in a Distinctive Tradition, Open to the World: Reflections Across Campus on the Heritage, Character, and Vision of Gustavus Adolphus College
Edited by Marcia J. Bunge, Rev. Drell and Adeline Bernhardson Distinguished Chair of Lutheran Studies

“The aim of this book is to address some of the common questions visitors or newcomers ask about the college’s identity and heritage: What makes Gustavus such a special and distinctive liberal arts college? What is the value of studying or working at a college founded by Swedish Lutherans? What does its Lutheran affiliation mean? How does its Lutheran heritage influence Gustavus today and into the future?”
