Affiliate Institutions


Denominational Affiliations / Schools

Since relocating to Claremont in 1956, the School of Theology has been an intentionally ecumenical theological school. The School therefore enjoys a working relationship with several theological institutions located on or near campus. These include Disciples Seminary Foundation, Episcopal Theological School at Claremont ("Bloy House"), and the Center for Lutheran Studies at Claremont

These institutions use the facilities of Claremont School of Theology, including classrooms, office space, Chapel and Library. The representatives of the cooperating institutions meet to coordinate and exchange ideas and plans, as well as to look at the opportunities in which cooperation will advance and enhance theological education for the coming century.
