Volunteer

Giving your time and talents

The CUI Alumni Association and Church and Community Relations work with volunteers and offer many opportunities where you can contribute your voice and expertise on-campus.

Actively Pray for the CUI Community

The Lord has blessed Concordia University in many ways. We ask for your continued prayers as we continue to grow and provide a quality education to future church workers and business leaders. Your time and prayers are greatly appreciated.

Foster Opportunities for Service

Concordia focuses on teaching students service through experiential learning. Many classes and student-led clubs integrate service learning through community service opportunities both locally and globally. Students can also serve through global and local missions. Contact us if you have a service opportunity for our students.
