Luther Seminary has a campus alert system provided by Omnilert for urgent communications regarding campus safety, including weather-related closings or cancellations. This service is available to anyone with a Luther Seminary account. We strongly encourage all members of the Luther Seminary community to sign up on Luther Seminary’s Omnilert sign-up page.
Luther Seminary’s COVID-19 protocols have required masks since the beginning of the pandemic, and this requirement remains in effect. Given the high COVID-19 test positivity and case rates in Ramsey and Hennepin counties as well as the new omicron variant, it is important for us all to adhere to this standard whenever we are on campus, regardless of our vaccination status. Masks can protect you and others, especially those who have not been vaccinated, such as children under 5.
Our mask policy remains limited to indoor areas; masks are not required outdoors. Individuals may remove masks when in private offices, but please remember to wear your mask in hallways.
Thank you for complying with our mask requirements. Helping one another stay healthy is one of the key things we can do to support community.

Ministry Matters Session 3 focuses on the Bible and the LGBTQIA+ community. David Scherer moderated a discussion with Ashlei Cramer and Aubrey Thonvold of ReconcilingWorks about how issues within the Bible affect LGBTQIA+ people and the community.
Ministry Matters is a student led six-month series for Christian public leaders to learn about the LGBTQIA+ community, its unique spiritual past, and the amazing opportunities ministry holds for the community. Each session is 90 minutes and will focus on a key topic/issue.
