For more than forty years, Catholic Theological Union (CTU) at Chicago has been educating and preparing men and women to serve God’s people throughout the world. Founded in 1968 in the spirit and vision of the Second Vatican Council, CTU has grown to be the largest Roman Catholic graduate school of theology and ministry in the United States.

Since its inception, CTU has been blessed with a rich diversity reflecting the global church itself: a student body representing forty-six countries worldwide; religious order seminarians and lay women and men; students of varying ages and backgrounds. Its distinguished Catholic faculty also includes scholars from the Protestant, Jewish, and Muslim traditions. And over the years CTU’s programs have expanded to address the intercultural needs of the Church in an increasingly global society.

CTU alums now number 3,500, serving the Church across the United States and in sixty-five countries worldwide. They work in parishes, homeless shelters, prisons, hospitals, schools, colleges and universities, gang ministry, hospices, social service organizations, and myriad other ministry settings.

CTU is also the home of the Bernardin Center of Theology and Ministry, where the ideas and spirituality of Cardinal Joseph Bernardin flourish through scholarships, seminars, lectures, and a full array of programs which focus on Cardinal Bernardin’s signature issues, including reconciliation and peacemaking, the consistent ethic of life, youth and young adults, and interreligious dialogue.
