Rudes activism and advocacy played a significant part in the ELCAs necessary evolution. Now, Krise tells me, she gets a chance to play a big part in an ongoing evolution at PLU. PLU is making great strides in our recruitment of students with a lot of diversity of background, says Krise, pointing to a student body with a variety of religious backgrounds, not just Lutherans, as well as a marked increase in the percentage of first-generation college students, students of color and students receiving federal Pell grants. Weve got students with lots of different experiences. And shes got all this experience that, I think despite her relative youth, is really great for our students. Shes doing some really cool and innovate stuff. Her experiences of reaching out to people who feel marginalized is really critically important to us. Evidence of Rudes approach could be seen Wednesday, when the chapel service she leads was devoted to issues of violence in society. Krise describes a service where the names of victims from the Orlando nightclub massacre, along with those recently killed by police and by terrorists, were read aloud and a candle was lit for all of them. As Rude begins her tenure at PLU, the university can expect more of this unique approach.
