MINNEAPOLIS - Augsburg College is publicly opposing the amendment to ban gay marriage in Minnesota's constitution.

The announcement Tuesday makes the Minneapolis liberal arts school the first traditional university in the state to come out against the amendment. The Minneapolis-based online institution Capella University has also gone on record against it.

Minnesotans United for All Families, the campaign against the amendment, says Augsburg President Paul Pribbenow's office joined its coalition this week. Augsburg is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Five of Minnesota's six ELCA synods have also gone on record against the amendment.

Augsburg has about 4,000 students. It's located in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis.
