Dear Friends,

It’s a paradox: in an age when ideas and commerce fly instantly across the globe, conflict over the world’s borders and boundaries looms larger than ever.

Concordia College has chosen Borders and Boundaries for its theme this year. Our students will be challenged to thoroughly examine and thoughtfully express themselves on the theme’s many meanings and interpretations. The theme will weave its way through diverse perspectives and across multiple academic disciplines, touching on topics close to home: culture, gender, class, religion, race, and ethnicity. Coursework, campus events, dialogue with guests, and engagement with the arts will bring students, faculty, staff and the wider community together to reflect on the physical and virtual borders and boundaries that shape all our lives.

The college recently created a few new boundaries of its own, dividing our expanding academic programs into four distinct schools: the School of Humanities, School of Health Sciences and Nursing, School of Education, and School of Business. Our new boundaries were created to be bridges: connecting Concordia’s proud heritage and unwavering Christian identity to the callings and careers of the future.   

Transcendent truth goes beyond, above and around borders and boundaries. It is a bridge to understanding the world and our purpose in it. As we on our small campus engage in a new year of learning – with and from each other in mutual respect – I look forward to seeing our students gain the knowledge and develop the wisdom that will allow them to build bridges of their own across the world.

Best of blessings in Jesus Christ,

The Rev. John Arthur Nunes, PhD
