Human Resources

Wisconsin Lutheran College is a four-year, independent, Christian liberal arts college affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. We value quality teaching and active scholarship. Our goal is to deliver a rigorous, personalized education within a caring Christian community of scholars and students. Education at Wisconsin Lutheran also involves the spiritual development of our students. Because of this spiritual dimension, a Wisconsin Lutheran faculty or academic staff position is a form of public ministry.

Accordingly, the College seeks to recruit faculty and staff who are active members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) or the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS) who share our commitment to quality Christian higher education and faithfulness to the Scriptures. After identifying qualified candidates, the College (under the auspices of the praesidium of the Southeastern Wisconsin District of the WELS) forwards a "call" document to the selected individual.
