Located in Minnesota's Twin Cities, Luther Seminary was originally known as Luther Theological Seminary and traces its history back to three distinct institutions of higher education. In addition to the Luther Seminary in St. Paul, the Red Wing Seminary, United Church Seminary and United Norwegian Lutheran Church merged in 1917. After several decades of expansion and development, the school once again merged with Augsburg Seminary in 1963. This was followed by a move by the Northwestern Lutheran Theological Seminary from Minneapolis to Luther's campus four years later. The two schools formed partnership in 1976, which solidified into another merger to form Luther Northwestern Theological Seminary in 1982. With the eventual merger of the Lutheran Church in the late 80s, the institution settled on its current name in 1994.
According to its mission statement adopted in 1995, Luther Seminary "educates leaders for Christian communities: called and sent by the Holy Spirit, to witness to salvation through Jesus Christ and to serve in God's world."
