Global Engagement Fund

Our Cal Lutheran mission to educate leaders for a global society is not just about study away programs: It is also about expanding horizons, embracing diverse perspectives, and cultivating the next generation of global leaders through academic and co-curricular experiences in the USA. Having international students and faculty on campus enriches the academic and cultural fabric of our institution and providing study abroad experiences expose students to different cultures, languages and ways of life, broadening their worldview. 

Our university is possible due to donations and international roots. Sixty-five years ago, Richard Pederson, a son of Norwegian immigrants donated the 130-acre ranch that comprises the university grounds. Help us forge ahead for the next 65 years of growth.

Your contributions—of any amount—enable us to assist students in distress, fund scholarships, expand our programs, and invest in initiatives that promote global understanding and cooperation. Join us in our mission to educate, inspire, and empower the global leaders of tomorrow. Donate to the Center for Global Engagement today and help us shape a brighter future for generations to come!
