Dear Concordia Family and Friends, Greetings to all as we begin the 126th year of Concordia College! The 2016-17 academic year was one of celebration and high achievement. Hearts together, we honored our 125th year of faith and learning, implemented strategic college plans and saw new student enrollment among undergraduates increase 5 percent over the previous year. Learning by doing: Starting in the fall of 2017, all students – no matter what their major – will complete a requirement called PEAK. As the name implies, it will challenge students to reach up and out from the discoveries of the classroom to apply those discoveries to the unscripted problems of communities they will serve. PEAK puts Concordia at the leading edge of American higher education. Science in Action: The Integrated Science Center project remains on time and budget and is set to open this fall. Ten years in the making, the complete renovation of Ivers and Jones ensures that our facilities will match the inquiry, research-based learning in the sciences and mathematics that our faculty now champion. At $45 million, it is by far the largest capital project in college history. New Ventures: The Offutt School of Business is poised to launch its Executive Education program for rising stars in regional companies. The college faculty and administrators are focusing on further forms of learning for non-baccalaureate learners. And at the Concordia Language Villages, we successfully completed our first year as one of only nine National Language Training Centers for the U.S. Department of Defense. More to follow! Concordia Diversity Initiative: We successfully completed a search for our first Chief Diversity Officer. Dr. Edward Antonio is prepared to guide and partner as we diversify our student body, faculty and staff, and curriculum so our students will flourish in the diverse world in which they will learn, work, and serve. Faithful Stewardship: It is humbling to witness the generosity of Concordia graduates and friends in supporting our scholarship, endowment, and capital fundraising goals. I am delighted to report that the 2016-17 fundraising year was record-breaking, totaling $21,267,660. Additionally, the endowment performance was strong, reaching $118,793,941, an all-time high for the college. Long ago, President Joseph Knutson wrote to a friend that guiding Concordia was an act of faith. It still is an act to which we are called, out of love for our college, and out of love for our neighbor in response to the liberating love of God. Soli Deo Gloria,

William J. Craft President, Concordia College

Every Gift Matters

Gifts to the College Jan and Carl Jahr How could anyone imagine that a chance meeting between soulmates in 1957 could lead to a legacy that has had such a deep and lasting impact on Concordia’s campus? Carl Jahr, a rural farm boy and tuba player from Rushford, Minn., met Janice Larson, a business major and clarinet player from Thief River Falls, Minn., in The Concordia Band. The musical pair were immediately smitten and on graduation weekend in 1957 the two were married. Carl and Jan’s legacy of giving began with small contributions to the C-400 Annual Fund. In later years, their support would continue to grow in size and purpose. This year, they were honored at Concordia’s Founders’ Day. Carl and Jan feel their gifts are a small way to recognize all Concordia gave to them. They remain grateful for the network of friends they met at Concordia long ago, especially those that recruited Carl and led him into a successful career in the insurance industry. We are thankful to the Jahrs for their lifetime of faithful and foundational giving to Concordia; two musicians living their faith and making a difference in the world.

Fiscal year 2016-17 was a record-breaking fundraising year for the college with gifts totaling $21,267,660. Alumni, parents, villagers and friends supported the Integrated Science Center, Offutt School of Business, Cobber Athletics 500-For-500, the taping of the Concordia Christmas Concert, the new banya (bathhouse) at Lesnoe Ozero, the Russian Language Village, and the college’s endowment. The Concordia and Village Annual Funds, with the help of more than 7,300 donors, raised more than $2.8 million for student and villager scholarships and other operational needs. The Legacy Scholarship Society secured 68 scholarships, providing $340,000 in individual scholarship awards of $5,000. Founders Society, Concordia College’s recognition program for individuals who have thoughtfully and generously included Concordia College and all or Concordia Language Villages in their estate plans, welcomed 14 new members into the society in 2016-17.

Celebrating 125 Years The purpose of Concordia College is to influence the affairs of the world by sending into society thoughtful and informed men and women dedicated to the Christian life.

In the fall of 2016, Concordia College celebrated 125 years of living out this mission through the exploration, ambition and eagerness of our current students, the spirit, commitment and accomplishment of more than 32,000 graduates, and the faithfulness, diligence, and passion of our past and present staff, faculty and administration. With humble beginnings as a Norwegian Lutheran school founded by early settlers in the Red River Valley, Concordia is now a nationally recognized private liberal arts college set in a regional hub of culture, education and health care. Increasingly focused on developing a broad global perspective, Concordia’s community of more than 2,100 students comes from 37 states and 28 countries and represents 39 religions and denominations.

Quasquicentennial celebrations and special events were held throughout the 2016-17 year including: 1. President Emeritus Paul Dovre and President William Craft spoke at a 125th anniversary chapel service recognizing the giants in our history who built the foundation of the college we know today. 2. A book signing by Professor Emeritus Carroll Engelhardt for his book “Concordia Fair Doth Stand: The College Begins Its Second Century, 1991-2016” was held. Engelhardt also wrote the history of the first 100 years of the college in the book “On Firm Foundation Grounded: The First Century of Concordia College, 1891-1991.” 3. “History and Heritage: Celebrating 125 Years of Concordia College,” an exhibit of the college’s history and heritage was shared through a variety of mediums including text panels, films, interactive digital components, and material objects in the Cyrus M. Running Gallery and later at the Hjemkomst Center, Moorhead, and at the Norway House, Minneapolis.

• Cordopedia, a digital encyclopedia of Concordia developed by Joy Lintelman and Lisa Sjoberg was launched.

4. A series of President’s Seminars, one of which featured New York Times columnist and author David Brooks, was held throughout the year. 5. The 91st annual Concordia Christmas Concert "Gather Us In O Child of Peace" was recorded for regional and national distribution in honor of the college’s 125th Anniversary. 6. “The Passion of Jesus Christ,” Dr. René Clausen’s new composition commissioned to observe the 500th anniversary of the Reformation premiered in Moorhead and Minneapolis.

2017

Concordia’s endowment was at an all-time high of $118,793,941 as of April 30, 2017, highlighting the college’s long-standing tradition of strong fiscal management and performance. Ten new endowment funds were established in 2017, bringing the total endowed funds and to 639. Student scholarships, which receive 45 percent of funds spent from the endowment, continue to be the most significant funding priority. Special programs, such as professional faculty development, the Dovre Center for Faith and Learning, cultural events and academic lectures receive about 24 percent of the endowment funds. The remaining 31 percent of endowment funds were used to support current operations, including endowed chairs, student research and the college’s diversity initiatives.

Operating revenue exceeded operating expenditures this year, reflecting careful attention to the financial health of the college. Tuition and fees provide the largest percentage of revenue, followed by our Auxiliary Enterprises (including Residence Life, Dining Services, Cobber Bookstore and Cobber Kids) and Independent Operations (including Concordia Language Villages). The college is grateful for the continued support from individuals and businesses that provided more than 5 percent of the operating revenue for the year. As the college looks forward, it will make a substantial commitment to enhancing student development, furthering diversity initiatives and identifying new avenues for growth while remaining committed to scholarships and financial aid for students.

Concordia College Highlights “We as faculty are always excited to teach and mentor talented students,” Jensen says. “I’m particularly excited about the opportunities this grant will provide to help us better understand how to offer a more welcoming and supportive environment to students from diverse backgrounds.” This award started March 1, 2017, and ends Feb. 28, 2022. Concordia will welcome the first cohort of scholars to campus this fall. This is Concordia’s second S-STEM grant award.

Diversity Scholarship Established

Concordia Receives NSF Grant The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Concordia College a $960,000 grant through the Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (S-STEM) program. Project director Dr. Mark Jensen, chair/professor of chemistry, will lead the program, which includes $576,000 for student scholarships. The college’s FOCUS program (Fostering Opportunities for Community, Understanding, and Success) has been created to assist in expansion of the STEM workforce by developing and implementing strategies to attract, retain and prepare academically talented, low-income students interested in STEM careers. Two cohorts of 12 students, including those who might not otherwise consider Concordia, will be awarded significant scholarship support. 10

Fay Ferguson ’73 and Dr. Earl Lewis ’78 started the Diversity Student Endowed Scholarship to support diversity among the college’s students. Eligible students include those with different backgrounds, including religion, sexual orientation and/or ethnicities. Selection will be based on scholastic achievement and financial need. The goal is twofold: to encourage students from diverse backgrounds to attend a quality liberal arts college and to increase the diversity of experiences represented on Concordia’s campus. “Increasing the number of diverse students on campus would not only positively impact declining college enrollment, but also activate Concordia’s mission of influencing the affairs of the world," says Ferguson. “How amazing it would be if Concordia became the model for diversity in higher education – let’s dream big dreams.” Increasing diversity on campus is a priority for the college strategic plan.


50 Years of Healthcare Administration When Concordia’s Healthcare Administration program started 50 years ago, it was filling a much-needed gap – training students to be rural healthcare administrators.

and putting things into effect that benefit the quality of care and life they deserve.” And with the current need for all types of healthcare workers, Concordia’s program will be filling a need for the next 50 years and beyond.

The college’s hospital administration program started in 1966 through funding from the Higher Education Act of 1965. “It fit for Concordia at the time with most of our students coming from rural areas,” says Dr. Paul Dovre, president emeritus. “We were able to give back in the form of educated people in these critical positions throughout the area.” The program evolved to meet other needs through the years. The college added hospital financial management and then long-term care administration in the 1970s. Today the program boasts concentrations in healthcare financial management, healthcare administration, long-term care administration and healthcare leadership. Between 20 and 30 full-time interns are placed through the program each year, many of them in facilities with Concordia alumni ties. One recent graduate leading from the start is Andrea Major ’15. She is the campus administrator for the Good Samaritan Society in Blackduck, Minn. She says her business healthcare leadership major and internships prepared her well to be responsible for her organization. “My passion in healthcare, which I realized through my hands-on experience and guidance from my advisor, is with the elderly,” Major says. “Long-term care is a very challenging field to be in right now. In my position, I am able to make a difference in the lives of our residents by making decisions

New Flags Celebrate Culture Beautiful bright colors adorn the Knutson Campus Center atrium as the flags of every student’s home country are displayed from the rafters. “At Concordia College, we celebrate and welcome people from all different backgrounds and identities,” says Dr. Matthew Beatty, director of International Admission. “It is important and exciting to have these flags so international students who choose to attend Concordia will continue to see a community that is welcoming, supportive and rejoices in their cultural identity.” The flags will change each fall according to the countries of origin on campus. A guide for the flags is available at the information center in the atrium.

Fulbright Scholars Three Concordia seniors have been awarded Fulbright English Teaching Assistant awards. Jenna Scarbrough, Oliver Reitan and Ruth Peterson will be providing assistance in English classrooms overseas while serving as cultural ambassadors for the U.S.

Bicycle Friendly Distinction Concordia has been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists with a bronze Bicycle Friendly University (BFUSM) award, joining more than 150 visionary colleges and universities from across the country. “I think it’s great that no matter who you are on campus, you can still ride a bike,” says Derek Ludwig ’18. “I like seeing my professors and peers in class riding around on bikes on their way to class. I think COBBikes is a cool way to give people a chance to enjoy bike riding and also encourages other people to do so.” The bike initiative has gained momentum with the expansion of the COBBikes program, providing more bike racks on campus, offering bike education courses, and now through our recent achievement of becoming a Bike Friendly University.

Computer Science Major Added Data analytics has been identified as a career in high demand. The college approved a computer science major that has two concentrations, computing and data analytics. This major is offered through a partnership between mathematics and Offutt School of Business. Students had the opportunity to declare a computer science major beginning in fall 2016.

While Scarbrough has a background in German – a minor in the language and experience at the German village at Concordia Language Villages – she decided to step out of her comfort zone. After having spent a semester in India and a month teaching English in Rwanda, Scarbrough chose to teach in Malaysia. An English and global studies double major, she felt it was a good way to tie in both areas of study by living and working in a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural country. While official placement hasn’t happened yet, she expects to be in a rural area working with secondary students for 10 months. “I’m going to take on any and all challenges that come with it,” Scarbrough says. Reitan, a German and education double major, will be teaching in Germany under the Fulbright. It fits with his plans to teach German in the U.S. upon returning and he’s also looking to gain deeper insights into the culture of Germany. Reitan will be in Rheinland-Palatinate, a state that sits on the border with France. “This is truly an amazing opportunity for me, particularly as it allows me to get a firsthand look at how the school system functions,” says Reitan. “I will be working in a German school 10-15 hours per week and am hoping to set up an English program for adults who would like to learn English but are not in school.” Peterson, an art and German double major, will also be teaching in Germany. She studied during the 2015-16 academic year in Bamberg, Germany, and looks forward to returning to experience a different aspect of German life through teaching. She’ll be placed somewhere in RhinelandPalatinate, working as an assistant to an English teacher in a school.


Peterson says this will be a unique opportunity where she’ll be both a learner and a teacher living in a fully immersive setting, but will still have the supportive community of the Fulbright program. “I absolutely fell in love with Germany while studying in Bamberg, and I’m excited to be a part of this cultural exchange,” says Peterson. The Fulbright Program is an international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. It’s designed to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and people of other countries.

Glas Retires Concordia’s men’s basketball coach Rich Glas ended his 37year career as a college head coach at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season. Glas coached his 1,021st and final game in February. His milestone 600th victory came in the Cobbers’ last game against St. Olaf in December and he ended his 37 seasons with 608 wins. For Concordia he won 118 games and is the fourth winningest coach in program history in only nine seasons on the sideline.

Drive To 125 The Cobber athletic department helped celebrate Concordia’s 125th anniversary by creating and fulfilling a “Drive To 125” campaign. Each time a Concordia team or individual earned a victory the total for the “Drive To 125” increased by one. The campaign highlighted all the success the Cobbers have on the field, course, court, rink, mat, track, pool and diamond.

Finance Lab Opens The Offutt School of Business’ new cutting-edge James Parke Technology Center opened for spring semester 2017. Live trading simulations and access to professional finance software offer students real-world application of portfolio management.

4-Year Graduation Guarantee Do more in four: Concordia’s four-year graduation guarantee program is designed to assist students to achieve a timely four-year graduation in order to enter graduate school or get started in a career earlier than peers attending other colleges and universities. Launched this past fall, the program minimizes college expenses, keeps the student on track academically, and provides greater opportunity to achieve long-term education and career goals. Students who follow the graduation guarantee guidelines will be supported to complete necessary coursework to graduate with a Concordia degree on time. Under this agreement, if students follow the graduation guarantee guidelines but do not finish within four years, Concordia will provide course substitutions and/or pick up the cost of tuition for additional coursework.

The count officially reached 125 on March 26, 2017, and the athletic department hosted a special celebration for all student athletes.

Concordia Language Villages Highlights

Summer youth enrollment was more than 4400 villagers, the strongest summer enrollment since 2009.

The 50th anniversary of the acquisition of the Turtle River Lake site was celebrated with a community luncheon. 14

Fourteen staff members celebrated 20 years or more of service to Concordia Language Villages.


Concordia Language Villages was designated a Language Training Center for the Department of Defense. The firstyear results were exceptionally strong in six different one- and two-week language trainings including Arabic, Chinese, French, Korean, Portuguese and Russian.

The 20th anniversary of the Peace Site was recognized during International Day. Concordia Language Villages is one of 980 Peace Sites designated by World Citizen Inc., a Minneapolis-based organization.

Concordia Language Villages was a premier sponsor of the Lead with Languages campaign, a multi-year campaign powered by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. The campaign is aimed at reversing the nation’s language skills gap and making language learning a national priority.

Lesnoe Ozero, the Russian Language Village, dedicated the new banya or Russian bathhouse.

15


Moving Forward With Science The construction of the Integrated Science Center continued through the 2016-17 academic year on budget and on schedule. The $45 million complex updates the Ivers and Jones Science Center. The renovated construction includes flexible classrooms, T-search labs designed for both teaching and research, and other specialized laboratories. Students will start in the new facility in fall 2017, and the official dedication will be held as part of Concordia’s 2017 Homecoming festivities.

Young Alumni Give Back Although our young alumni are just beginning their careers, their generosity to the college is inspiring. In 2016-17, several young alumni-focused giving initiatives were created to engage our recent graduates.

GOLD Givers Society

Young Alumni Giving Challenge In January 2017, Concordia launched its first Young Alumni Giving Challenge in an attempt to engage graduates of the last five years. The three-week online challenge helped raise more than $15,000 for student scholarships and showed our young alumni that their gifts really do matter.

The GOLD Givers Society is a young GIVERS alumni leadership giving group that recognizes monthly recurring donations from members of the last 10 graduating classes. Members have access to exclusive perks, including presale tickets and special communication from the president.

To incentivize donors to make a gift, chief information officer and Concordia campus celebrity, Bruce Vieweg, offered significant matching funds. Through his generosity and willingness to be the face of the campaign (literally), he connected with a plethora of recent grads.

Since its inception in November 2016, 50 alums from the last seven years have become members of the GOLD Givers Society, totaling monthly contributions of more than $350/month. This program has significantly increased the size of gifts we traditionally see from young alums, especially in the most recent graduating class. In FY17, we saw 16 graduates from the Class of 2016 become members and contribute their monthly $5 contribution. Members of the GOLD Givers Society show their generosity beyond just their financial contributions: speaking on panels, serving on committees, and volunteering in the community. In its first year, the GOLD Givers Society has made great headway and the program will continue to grow in FY18.

In the end, the Young Alumni Giving Challenge had 238 gifts from 220 donors (including 140 first-time givers) totaling $5,564.87.

Overall, the challenge was wildly successful and surpassed all goals. Initially, the goal was 75 gifts, with a $1,000 match for every 15 gifts received. Donors gave 75 gifts by day three of the challenge, and Vieweg was gracious enough to increase his match four times throughout the challenge, totalling $10,000 in matching funds.

Class Breakdown: 2012 – 21 donors 2013 – 54 donors 2014 – 66 donors 2015 – 45 donors 2016 – 52 donors

Dollar Breakdown: Alumni: $5,564.87 Bruce Vieweg: $10,000 Total: $15,564.87

Circle of Excellence Award Concordia’s Young Alumni Giving Challenge was recognized by CASE, the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, receiving a Silver Circle of Excellence Award for Emerging Programs in 2017. These international awards are given out based on creativity, success, and implementation by the CASE governing board. 17


Enrollment We welcomed 595 first-year and transfer students in fall 2016, which brought total undergraduate enrollment to 2,114 students. The Enrollment office reports this is a nearly 5 percent increase in new incoming first-year students compared to last year. The student body called 37 states and 29 countries home. Our new students were well prepared for Concordia’s academic rigor. Nearly 27 percent of first-year students were in the top 10 percent of their high school class.
