Forward in Faith

Fifty years ago, a bold and unique model of Catholic theological education was born. In September 1968, embracing the urban and university setting of Hyde Park, Chicago, and driven by a collaborative and ecumenical spirit, Catholic Theological Union opened its doors. CTU has now grown to be a premier school of theology and ministry, sponsored by twenty-four religious communities and enjoying a global reputation for excellence.
