Welcome to Augustana

Situated between the rugged landscape of the Black Hills and the urban skylines of Minneapolis, Augustana is a nationally recognized college located in Sioux Falls. Our students aspire for more than the ordinary and our graduates are the change-makers and problem-solvers of tomorrow.

Explore New Ideas

Whether it's classroom instruction from renowned professors, experiential learning through study abroad or an internship, or campus events that bring world leaders and global thinkers to campus, Augustana is a place where new ideas are plentiful and innovation is constant.

Hear from Rwandan genocide survivor and former refugee Clemantine Wamariya, speaking on values at the 2014 Iverson Lecture, beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 19, in Kresge Recital Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

Discover 21st-Century Skills

Here, our renowned faculty will help you discover 21st-century skills – what many have traditionally called the liberal arts – the ability to analyze information and draw conclusions, think critically and problem solve, communicate effectively, collaborate, engage technology, and act with global awareness. Our expertise in teaching and research is why students from 29 states and 38 countries have chosen Augustana. And, we believe, it's why our enrollment is on the rise.

Create a Better Tomorrow

Augustana is a community united by our belief that education is the key to building an even better tomorrow. We're grateful to more than 15,000 alumni, families, friends, churches and organizations who share in that belief. Today, we celebrate their gifts and commitments of more than $121 million to the Momentum Augustana Campaign in support of student scholarships, academic programs and capital improvements.
