At the September 10 Lunch n’ Learn, Dr. William Cario talked about the Concordia Primer for Faith and Learning. He wrote this primer to give faculty, schools and departments an overview of Concordia’s stance as a Lutheran and Christian organization. This also serves as a tool to give faculty a clearer sense of institutional expectations about relating faith and learning.
