    We strongly encourage hands-on learning and primary research at the undergraduate level and Capital students are frequent presenters at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR).

    We’re also proud that a majority of our School of Nursing students consistently pass the registered nurses’ licensure exam (NCLEX) on their first try - well above the national average.

    We organize the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Learning, offering a day of workshops and special events to promote diversity and lifelong learning to all students and the public.
