Reunion News and Updates | Capital University


Reunion News

  • Driven by an uncompromising commitment to strengthening our shared mission and legacy, Capital University and Trinity Lutheran Seminary are pursuing the reunion of their institutions. Approved by both institution’s governing boards in November 2016, and affirmed in June 2017, the vision and plan for re-integration are being implemented. Work will continue throughout the fall and, upon final approval from both boards, will take legal effect January 1, 2018.

    Capital and Trinity remain committed to transparency, frequent communication and the open exchange of ideas. This Reunion webpage will be used to share news and updates as our work progresses.

    E-mail Communication
    Trinity students will now have both a and a e-mail address. We will be providing instructions on how to set up mail forwarding so that any messages sent to the Capital e-mail address can automatically go to the Trinity e-mail account. This will minimize the number of accounts students have to check leading up to January when all e-mail will be switched to your account.
