The big news at Luther comes from the Board of Regents. They named Dr. Paula Carlson as the college’s 10th president on Friday, February 28. Dr. Carlson is a 1976 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of St. Olaf College with many family connections to Luther. She holds master of arts and philosophy degrees, and a doctorate in English and comparative literature from Columbia University. The campus community is excited and it looks like she will be a great “fit” for Luther. We will not say more here because additional communication about the new president will reach you before our letter arrives in your mailbox.
