Catholic Theological Union Announces Collaborative Relationship
with All Hallows College, Dublin
CHICAGO [September 6, 2013] President Mark Francis, CSV, announced that Catholic Theological Union (CTU) has formed a collaborative relationship with All Hallows College in Dublin, Ireland, a Catholic and Vincentian institution of higher education with strong multicultural and interfaith outreach.
This new relationship between CTU and All Hallows entails collaboration in a number of areas, including access to online courses, library collaboration and opportunities for study programs in Ireland.
The Rev. Francis said of the new collaboration, “We at CTU are excited about this new relationship that will help provide students from both institutions an expanded range of options for both courses and overseas programs.”
The president of All Hallows College, the Rev. Patrick J. McDevitt, CM, is a Chicagoan who came to All Hallows from DePaul University. Fr. McDevitt looks forward to helping local students benefit from the advantages of studying abroad in a college that identifies leadership and human service as its distinctive academic specialization. He said, “Our vision is to educate our students so they may become a new generation of leaders committed to human service and justice.”
In addition to this relationship with All Hallows, CTU has an educational alliance with Chicago’s DePaul University and the Lay Centre at Foyer Unitas, a highly respected international residential and educational organization for lay men and women studying at Pontifical universities in Rome.
