BOARD OF REGENTS RESOLUTION
Relocation of Concordia University at Austin
Whereas, Concordia University at Austin’s mission is to develop Christian leaders, and
Whereas, Concordia University at Austin’s vision is to be recognized for its integrity, academic excellence and Lutheran ethos, and
Whereas, Almighty God has blessed Concordia University at Austin by nearly tripling the student enrollment since the school became a four-year institution, and
Whereas, the capacity of the current campus in areas such as parking, available classrooms and student housing will seriously constrain continued growth in student enrollment, and
Whereas, after studying expansion options for the existing 23-acre campus within the context of the university’s strategic plan, we find that we can use a location with more space in order to best accomplish our mission,
Therefore be it resolved, that after prayerful consideration, the Board of Regents notify the Board for University Education of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and the Synod’s Board of Directors of its intent to relocate Concordia University at Austin, and
Be it further resolved, that the Board of Regents direct the president of Concordia University at Austin to actively seek a buyer for the existing campus in line with appraised value, with final approval of the Board of Regents, and
Be it further resolved, that provisions be made for honoring the many contributions made by those who have supported Concordia, and
Be it finally resolved, that Concordia University ask all its constituents to actively pray for the success of this project.
Adopted unanimously, May 13, 2005
In taking this action the Board of Regents affirms:
1. the importance of our mission to the church and our community.
2. the need to recognize and honor the contributions of the many families who have made Concordia what it is today.
3. the need to maintain a site in Austin to support the pivotal role that the ADP and graduate programs play in the life of the university.
4. the need to select a new site for the main campus from among the many gracious offers within the Central Texas community.
5. its support of the administration in making the organizational changes necessary to accomplish this task.
6. that this will be a multi-year process.
