Mission and Vision


Augustana Chaplaincy seeks to accompany the Augustana community on a pilgrimage of educating the whole person - body, mind and spirit. Welcoming all people, the chaplaincy community enacts the gospel by providing opportunities for worship, learning, community building, pastoral care and service.

Vision and Principles

Rooted in the Lutheran tradition, Augustana chaplaincy is ecumenical in scope and an integral partner in Augustana's mission of developing personal wholeness through a liberal education and equipping students for leadership and service. Embracing the partnership, Augustana Chaplaincy values being an academically credible resource for the entire campus, accompanying all students as they struggle with questions of meaning and purpose, developing leaders for church and society and contributing to the work of building justice and peace.
