Message from the President

President Stephanie Herseth Sandlin talks with students.

We promise at Augustana that you will find an environment that is intellectually challenging. But this is also a place where academic rigor is accompanied by generous levels of support from faculty and staff who are committed to your success.

We promise we will integrate faith in the learning environment. This is a place where it is okay to talk about God and ask questions about faith, and where students will come to their own understanding of their faith and the values in which they believe.

We promise we will engage in community. This is a place where people seek to get to know one another and where relationships are built that are valid and personal.

When our students, in turn, promise to challenge themselves intellectually, integrate faith discussions, and engage in our community, the result is a covenant relationship that creates an educational experience of enduring value.

That's Augustana.
