About Concordia University Chicago
Your World Opens Up
From Here With humble beginnings in 1864 as the Addison Lutheran Teachers Seminary in Addison, IL, Concordia University Chicago has grown from a small, single-discipline institution to a globally-focused, liberal-arts university. In October of 1913, more than 40,000 people gathered to dedicate the University’s River Forest campus of Concordia Teachers College.
Since then, Concordia-Chicago has experienced decades’ worth of growth and expansion, paving the way for not only exceptional teacher education programs, but also an ever-widening curriculum addressing the growing needs of students and society. The college diversified its enrolment with the admission of the first female students in 1936. While teaching remained the focus, additional programs of study were added and by 1957, the first graduate courses were added.
CUC continued its expansion with its first doctoral degree in 2000 and later with the addition of the College of Business, the College of Graduate Studies and the College of Innovation and Professional Programs.
Today, CUC is a richly diverse campus comprising more than 5,000 undergraduate, master’s and doctoral students. The University’s expanding centres for excellence are establishing the University as a global leader in learning.
