Since its inception, CTS has lived on the edge – literally and figuratively. Established in the boomtown of Chicago in 1855, the Seminary’s first mission was to train church leaders on what was then America’s western boundary. Throughout our history CTS has been a leader in theological education, social justice, and societal transformation.
The Lapp Learning Commons has a long tradition and commitment to meeting the instructional and research needs of its constituents. Our mission is to continually build and provide access to materials, promote information literacy and lifelong learning in order to advance learning and scholarship within the entire Chicago Theological Seminary community.
The CTS campus is located in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood. It is a desirable, racially-diverse neighborhood, which includes the homes of many notable Chicagoans, including President Barack Obama. Hyde Park is also the home of the University of Chicago.
