Luther College (Academic)

Con­tracts

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.
