Concordia College Alabama is a private, historically black college located in Selma, Alabama. A college of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, it was founded in a rented cottage in 1922, in order to train church workers. The college now offers associate and bachelor’s degree programs. Given the suburban setting, and the small student body of approx. 600 students, a community atmosphere thrives at Concordia. Student services include counselling, career services, and the Man Center, which aims to empower young men for success. Students engage in sports, community events, and various clubs and organisations. Concordia is situated in Selma, which has a rich history, pertaining both to the Civil War, as well as the Voting Rights Movement, and the exploration of these sights helps contribute towards a more wholesome education for learning minds.
