Thank you for your April focus on the colleges and universities of the Concordia University System, “What’s New at Our Concordias?” However, some of the programs offered at Concordia University Texas were not mentioned.
This academic year, Concordia University Texas began offering pre-nursing courses with acceptance of junior-level students to the professional nursing courses of the nursing program in fall of 2010. Concordia’s nursing program is being developed in conjunction with the Clinical Education Center at Brackenridge, a member of the Seton Family of Hospitals, the University of Texas at Austin, and Austin Community College.
Also, Concordia has numerous cohorts for a master’s of education in Austin and other satellite centers, including Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio.

I always enjoy reading The Lutheran Witness, especially the April edition. Mr. Lovstad’s story, “What’s New at Our Concordias?” would lead one to believe that the law school purposed by Concordia, Portland, would be the first one at a Lutheran university. Valparaiso University has had a law school for more than 50 years. It is so well respected that it often has a Supreme Court justice as its law school commencement speaker.
