Human Resources

Wisconsin Lutheran College is an independent, nationally ranked Christian 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 College also involves the spiritual development of our students. Because of this spiritual dimension, a Wisconsin Lutheran College 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 subject to the approval of the WELS Southeast Wisconsin District Presidium, the College issues a divine call to the selected individual.

    Because WLC is a college ministry espousing Bible based confessional Lutheran beliefs, and affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), the college reserves the right to give preference in employment to persons based on religion in accordance with our Bible based beliefs.
