Presidential Statement

Texas Lutheran has a shared sense of identity and mission. Our mission is clear and understood by all: providing quality liberal arts undergraduate education in a residential setting. TLU faculty and staff are not distracted by competing models of adult or graduate education or on-line delivery. As a result, we know that we must provide exceptional support for students' progress towards graduation and successful transition into careers or graduate/professional school. General agreement among faculty and staff about identity, vision and goals creates a solid foundation for building a positive campus culture.

Employee Comment

The culture at TLU truly is unique--the people are welcoming and genuine. As a result, I wake up each day excited to go to work.
