Mission and Policies


Luther College, since the inception of intercollegiate athletics for its students, has affirmed that athletics is integral to the fulfillment of its mission. The educational experience at Luther College not only disciplines the mind but also develops whole persons and prepares them to serve with distinction for the common good. The intercollegiate athletic program helps fulfill this mission by developing strength of body, discipline, teamwork, sportsmanship, character, integrity, leadership, and sense of fair play. The Luther College Athletic Department is committed to providing an environment that encourages high levels of athletic performance and enables individuals and teams to challenge for conference, regional, and national championships.


Luther College strives to conduct the athletics program in compliance with Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC) and NCAA rules and regulations. Institutional representatives failing to comply with rules prescribed by the governing bodies will be subject to corrective action including termination. The Athletic Department does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, disability, national origin, sexual orientation, age or gender.
