The Care Team at Luther Seminary provides support, advocacy, and prayer for the entire Luther community. The Care Team tends holistically to the community with a primary emphasis on student support cultivating spiritual, emotional, physical, social, financial, vocational, and intellectual well-being. Meeting regularly throughout the year, the team collaborates in our shared goal to walk faithfully with the community—amid challenges and joys—for the sake of empowering student success and a healthy learning environment.
The Care Team consists of the Seminary Pastor, the Dean of Students, the Director of Student Affairs, the Director of International Student and Scholar Affairs, the Director of Contextual Learning, and the Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Anyone in the Luther Seminary community can reach out to the Care Team members with concerns for self and/or others.
Counseling & Spiritual Direction Resources
A variety of counseling and spiritual direction resources are available to you as a student. The seminary pastor, your faculty mentor, and the Student Affairs team are available for conversations and consultations. The seminary pastor is a confidential resource on campus.
Additional counseling resources are also available to you through the professional services of counselors in the Twin Cities or in your area. We encourage you to make use of such professionals when you are ready to address more complicated issues in your life as a seminarian. Tending to our health and wholeness as real human beings is a necessary asset for ministry.
If you need assistance in selecting a counselor or spiritual director, please contact a member of the Care Team. Each degree-seeking student may request reimbursement towards payment of a licensed counselor and/or spiritual director for up to $300 per academic year (July 1-June 30).
Disability Support Services
It is Luther Seminary’s policy to ensure that no qualified student with a disability is denied the benefits of, excluded from participation in or subjected to discrimination in any seminary program, service or activity. The seminary provides reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities.
If students wish to request accommodations, please contact the Disability Services Liaison for documentation and information about available reasonable accommodations at 651-641-3465 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Need an after-hours escort to your car or apartment? Have a non-emergency security concern? Call Campus Watch 24/7 at (651) 324-9911. For emergencies, dial 911 immediately.
Luther Seminary is located in the small St. Anthony Park neighborhood of St. Paul. One of the many benefits of our location is being part of a safe community. But as in any community, there are security risks. If you have experienced a security-related incident, please report it.
Sexual Misconduct Crisis Support
Luther Seminary believes that all members of the campus community are entitled to an environment that enables them to develop and contribute in their full capacity. When sexual misconduct occurs, the standards of the institution are violated, and the environment is disrupted. Sexual misconduct is prohibited by law, as well as by institutional policy at Luther Seminary. It will not be tolerated.
Any victim of sexual misconduct should consider seeking immediate medical and emotional assistance.
