We are a comprehensive, independent university grounded in the Lutheran tradition. The education we offer is experiential, intimate, and urban. From the arts and sciences to professional programs, our teachers excel at both challenging students and creating a personalized learning environment. We believe the intellect is best developed when it’s exposed to education inside and far from the classroom. That’s how we engage the community in the pursuit of lifelong learning. In short, Capital University prepares students to contribute to the world-through both their professional lives and personal service.
