Our Mission

The mission of Concordia Language Villages is to inspire courageous global citizens. 

A courageous global citizen lives responsibly by:

•    appreciating and seeking to understand diverse cultural perspectives;
•    communicating with confidence and cultural sensitivity in multiple languages;
•    respecting human dignity and cultivating compassion;
•    engaging critically and creatively with issues that transcend boundaries; and
•    advancing a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world for all.

Concordia Language Villages reflects the mission of Concordia College, which is to influence the affairs of the world by sending into society thoughtful and informed men and women dedicated to the Christian life. The college’s mission is inclusive in composition, global in scope and reconciling in intention.
