The Intersections program is designed for highly talented and self-motivated students who want to explore big ideas through an approach to learning that emphasizes the value of "intersections"—of people, cultures, approaches, and methods—as part of their liberal arts study.
Entering students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement in high school will be invited to participate in the Scholars Colloquium in the fall semester of their first year. Other students may be nominated by a Luther faculty member to participate in the spring.
