Welcome to the Lorentzsen Center

The Lorentzsen Center honors the life, work, and legacy of Norman M. Lorentzsen, renown philanthropist, former CEO of Burlington Northern, alumnus of Concordia College, and former member and chair of its Board of Regents. Through his life and generosity, Norm helped to build a joyful, just, and more trustworthy world. In honor of that legacy, the Lorentzsen Center takes up the question, “How do we build a more trustworthy world?”  We explore that question through keynote events, a podcast, and a regular  newsletter.
