PLU at 125: Lutheran Education on the Frontier

CLOSED

Scandinavian Immigrants to North America brought with them the core values of their home countries, including a deep appreciation for education. Based on the philosophy of Martin Luther, establishing schools was a top priority for Nordic communities across the United States.

Pacific Lutheran University was founded by Norwegian Lutheran ministers in 1890, the first such institution west of the Rockies. This exhibition chronicles how Lutheran educational ideals have been pushed to encompass a greater and greater segment of society, both at Pacific Lutheran University and back in Scandinavia. It is produced by the Scandinavian Cultural Center at PLU as a traveling exhibition in recognition of PLU’s 125th anniversary.
