Justin Knoepfel: National and International Connections Facilitated by our Lutheran Affiliation

Posted on June 11th, 2016 by

By attending national or international venues that bring together representatives from a wide range of religiously-affiliated institutions, members of our community are bound to bring back new ideas about teaching, scholarship, faith, and ethical concerns that will serve us all, as we all strive to help to make Gustavus and the world a better place.

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?”
