For over 165 years, Chicago Theological Seminary has pushed at the boundaries of theological education with an on-going legacy of progressive firsts and historic social justice.

That continues. Our commitments remain.

Our community represents a diverse array of traditions, beliefs, and life stances. Yet we are united in our shared responsibility to civic engagement, and the creation of a public square that insists on room and power for everyone.

But change is happening around us every day, in the world and also here at CTS.

The landscape of theological education is also rapidly changing. In response to that change, CTS has established a new Office of Strategic Initiatives. This office is engaged in the development of sustaining relationships with organizations that share the mission and vision of CTS. This will allow CTS to deepen and develop its relationships with Black faith communities, the LGBTQIA community, the Muslim community and the UCC. These efforts are central to building a new eco-system for the Seminary. We have also expanded the Seminary’s interfaith efforts with the formal establishment of a partnership with Bayan Islamic Graduate School. Change is good.

We have a smart, new website, a fresh and updated logo and an enduring commitment to make the world a more just place.

In this critical moment in history, we are united in the belief that coming together empowers us all to manifest justice in our world.

Justice Lives Here. Join us.
