Our faculty and staff are working hard to prepare our students for the future. We have transitioned all of our courses to the best-quality virtual teaching and award-winning fully online course formats through the summer. As for the fall, our President, Dr. Chris Kimball, would like to share an important message that outlines our planning process. We invite you to read his letter and learn more about how we are preparing for the months ahead. We are here for our community - so stay in touch, keep your eye on the ball, join us at one of our virtual events, or contact us at som@callutheran.edu.
