Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago

The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC) is a seminary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. LSTC is a member of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (ACTS), a consortium of eleven area seminaries and theological schools. It shares the JKM Library and portions of its campus with McCormick Theological Seminary. LSTC is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools and regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The HTC placed the school on probation in January 2018 because it failed to meet criteria regarding finances and quality of programming. A second review and evaluation is scheduled for completion by May 2019.[3]
