McCormick Theological Seminary is one of eleven schools of theology of the Presbyterian Church (USA). It shares a campus with the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, bordering the campus of the University of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. Primarily a seminary serving the Presbytery of Chicago and the Synod of Lincoln Trails, McCormick Theological Seminary also educates members of other Christian denominations. It was named after American industrialist Cyrus McCormick. McCormick Theological Seminary was established in 1829 as a preparatory school in Hanover, Indiana for prospective Presbyterian ministers hoping to serve on the western frontier of the expanding United States. When the western frontier boundary moved, the school also moved and opened in Chicago's present-day Lincoln Park neighborhood in 1859. Their old campus now forms a part of the DePaul University campus on Fullerton Parkway between Halsted and Racine Streets. In 1969, the Young Lords and 350 local community residents aided by seminary students, sat in at the seminary's administration building and held it for a week, demanding $650,000 to be invested in low income housing. In 1975, facing a dire financial situation and declining enrollment, McCormick sold the Lincoln Park campus to DePaul University and moved to the Hyde Park neighborhood in Chicago. This move divested the institution of infrastructure while reinforcing its commitment to urban ministry. Sharing facilities with the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago (LSTC), McCormick began to help foster important ecumenical cooperation between the Presbyterian and Lutheran churches. In 2003 McCormick reinforced and recommitted itself to its ecumenical partnership with LSTC by building a new building situated on the LSTC campus.
