Welcome to the IRI
For more than four decades, Chicago Theological Seminary has been committed to academic and community-oriented programs that promote interfaith dialogue and collaboration. The InterReligious Institute grows from this longstanding legacy and seeks to deepen and broaden interreligious understanding in order to build communities rooted in pluralism, deeply intersectional, resolutely antiracist, striving always for justice and mercy.
The InterReligious Institute supports curricular, co-curricular and community initiatives aimed at advancing interreligious engagement in order to bring about a more just, inclusive, pluralistic world.
We have the power to build bridges that unite and oppose walls that divide.
We have the power to proclaim the richness of diversity and counter messages of hate.
We have the power to live into a world that knows justice and knows peace.
