The mission of the Concordia University Chicago Athletics Department is to provide a positive athletic experience to all individuals. Every experience should support and encourage the student-athlete’s academic development and personal growth in a program dedicated to quality and excellence at the NCAA Division III level.

The goal is to prepare student-athletes for productive careers and active, responsible lives. It is our responsibility to help student-athletes graduate and be productive as Christian adults in the world. CUC wishes to emphasize honesty, personal integrity and independent thinking. Intercollegiate athletics is intended to provide students with opportunities to enhance their educational experiences. It is a privilege to represent Concordia University Chicago and student-athletes need to consider it as such. Participation in the program, however, is secondary to the academic obligation of students.

The welfare, health and safety of student-athletes are primary concerns of the Athletics Department. Every student-athlete, in all sports, will receive fair and equitable treatment. Student-athletes will have no unique privileges in admission, grading or living accommodations that a non-athlete would not receive as a student of Concordia University Chicago. Concordia University Chicago participates in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC), which includes 14 private colleges and universities from Wisconsin and Illinois.
