Pacific Lutheran University rankings and awards


PLU is the small, private university where caring means more than kindness and consideration - it means a bold commitment to expanding well-being, opportunity, and justice. Our students aren’t afraid to do things differently to leave the world better than they found it. We are a community of seekers, trailblazers, creators, and reformers who know that we can accomplish more together than apart. The PLU experience allows your ambition to blossom into purpose, your skills to sharpen into tools, and your caring to become a transformative force.
