About CLU

Founded in 1959, California Lutheran University's dedicated, accomplished faculty works with small classes of undergraduate and graduate students who are open-minded—about ideas, about people, and about faith—and are seeking to grow as individuals. Both in the classroom and outside of it, everyone at Cal Lutheran is committed to helping each student pursue their passions to discover their purpose, and follow that purpose to transform their community—and the world.
