Luther College is a college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada, federated with the University of Regina. The aim of the College is to provide a quality liberal education in a Christian context. Luther College is academically integrated with the University of Regina and fully shares its excellent campus and facilities. The University has encouraged the growth of its federated colleges to aid in “presenting, reflecting upon and scrutinizing as broad a spectrum as possible of values and viewpoints”, and to afford some students the opportunity “to become associated, within the broader contest of the University with a smaller college environment”. (University of Regina General Calendar, 1977 – 78)
The Academic staff at Luther College was certified in January, 1977, naming the University of Regina Faculty Association as its exclusive bargaining agent. Faculty, librarians, laboratory instructors, instructors and sessionals at Luther College are represented by the Luther College Collective Agreement. Currently, URFA represents approximately 43 members at Luther College.
