The Concordia University System

Concordia University Texas is affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) and is a member of the Concordia University System (CUS).

The colleges and universities that comprise the system are liberal arts institutions affiliated with the LCMS, which provide a Christ-centered spiritual and value-oriented environment for men and women. The common goal of the CUS is to develop Christian leaders for the church, community and world.

Eight Members, Nine Locations

From the West Coast to the East Coast and in between, there are eight universities and colleges that are members of the CUS. The Concordias in Michigan and Wisconsin have merged and are now one school. There are nine total locations, which include:

  • Irvine, California
  • River Forest (Chicago), Illinois
  • Ann Arbor, Michigan
  • St. Paul, Minnesota
  • Seward, Nebraska
  • Bronxville, New York
  • Portland, Oregon
  • Austin, Texas
  • Mequon, Wisconsin

System-Wide Benefits

Every member of the CUS offers students the following:

  • Christ-centered learning environment rooted in Lutheran theology
  • Opportunity to engage in leadership and service-learning
  • Innovative instructors who challenge you to think
  • Faculty interested in helping you reach your potential as a Christian leader

CTX Is Unique

While we are part of a strong system of LCMS schools, CTX offers certain benefits that other CUS schools don’t offer.

CTX sits on 389 acres of beautiful land in Northwest Austin, 250 of which are part of a protected nature preserve. Students are surrounded by natural beauty as they live, learn and study.
