Luther Seminary is monitoring the unfolding COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to minimize disruptions to teaching and learning while providing a safe environment for faculty, students, and staff who study, live, and work at Luther Seminary. We give thanks for the seminary’s COVID-19 task force, the enterprise leadership team, and our entire community of students, faculty, and staff who are supporting one another during this difficult and challenging time.
If you will be coming to campus for any reason, please remember to follow our current guidelines.

Recently, the U.S. Congress allocated funding to colleges and universities to assist students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) was created to enable colleges and universities to provide cash grants to current students for expenses related to disruptions to their education due to COVID-19. Public reporting for the student portion, the institutional portion and the FIPSE grant are available on the CARES Act Emergency Funds for Students page.
Update on Winter and Spring Terms
The Educational Leadership Committee (ELC), comprised of a group of faculty and staff leaders, along with the Enterprise Leadership Team (ELT), comprised of administrative leaders, concur that the winter and spring terms will continue to be fully online.
Staff and faculty continue to exercise maximum flexibility to work from home. If and when staff would like to work in the office on campus, our policy is to have no more that 25% of folks in offices at any one time. As ever, our priority is the health, safety, and well-being of the entire community.
