Association of Chicago Theological Schools

CTU is a founding member of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (ACTS), an ecumenical consortium formed in 1984. This association provides valuable resources to the three thousand students it serves, including faculty interchange, symposia and lectures, and access to library collections of 1.7 million volumes and five thousand periodical subscriptions. In addition to the many courses offered at CTU, students have access to the more than nine hundred courses taught each semester at the other ten member schools.  Through ACTS, students and faculty can work, study, and reflect while interacting with people of many differ­ent cultural and theological traditions. 

A full listing of the courses offered through ACTS can be found at
