Carthage welcomes people from all faith and non-faith traditions to engage in meaningful learning and dialogue with one another. You may be thinking: “Wait a minute. This is a college rooted in the Lutheran tradition, right? Why would you encourage other faith traditions?”

We do this because we are a college rooted in the Lutheran tradition. Lutherans believe we are saved by grace through faith, and that this grace gives us the freedom we need to love and serve the world — the whole world, not just the Lutheran world.
