The mission of St. Olaf College is that “St. Olaf, a four year college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, provides an education committed to the liberal arts, rooted in the Christian Gospel, and incorporating a global perspective … it offers a distinctive environment that integrates teaching, scholarship, creative activity, and opportunities for encounter with the Christian Gospel and God’s call to faith.”
The purpose of Church Relations is to build and encourage relationships between the college and the Church that will strengthen both in our common areas of mission.
