Catholic Theological Union (CTU) is a Roman Catholic graduate school of theology in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. It is one of the largest Roman Catholic graduate schools of theology in the English speaking world and trains men and women for lay and ordained ministry within the Roman Catholic Church.[6] It was founded in 1968, when three religious institutes united their separate theology programs to form one school.
