Texas Lutheran University

Mission

Texas Lutheran University is a community of learning and a community of faith. As a community of learning, the university stresses the liberating potential of the disciplined pursuit of academic excellence within the context of academic freedom. In working to bring learning and faith into an intimate relationship, TLU is discovering that each can strengthen, clarify, and enrich the other. Individuals who live and work in these contexts find their own purposes enlarged and deepened. A compassion born of faith and a competence informed by learning shape the mission of the university.

Faculty and staff seek to engage each student in a process of self-education that will assist him or her in developing as an informed and resourceful person in today's rapidly changing world. It provides an academic program based upon the tradition of the liberal arts and designed to serve a diversified community. A TLU education encourages students to learn boldly and live to inspire. They seek to achieve these components through a broad general education curriculum we call Compass. This curriculum incorporates knowing, doing and becoming through key competencies: depth in a major field of study and co-curricular experiences that build on classroom learning.

The university is also accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate and master's degrees. Program Specific Accreditations include Teacher Education: Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC), Business Administration: Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), Athletic Training: Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), and School of Music: National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).
