May 1, 2006

MINNEAPOLIS, May 1, 2006 — Capella University, an accredited* online university, and leader in online education, is the new presenting sponsor for “This I Believe,” a weekly show on NPR (National Public Radio) newsmagazines, “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered.”

“This I Believe” is a contemporary version of the 1950s project created by Edward R. Murrow. The show airs personal essays from listeners and prominent Americans about the core beliefs that guide their daily lives. Murrow's project caught the attention of millions of listeners who sought the comfort and inspiration the essays brought to a time of uncertainty in America. Today, “This I Believe” aims to give hope and encouragement to listeners who may also feel that belief is dividing our nation, while supporting the respect for beliefs that may not always be like our own.
