We encourage visits from prospective Disciples Scholars.
Mondays are especially good days to visit. Stay in a DDH guest room, attend Monday dinner and Divinity School classes, meet with Dean Kris Culp and other faculty of the Divinity School, talk with current students, and tour the campus and neighborhood. You might want to walk along the lakefront, visit world-class museums, and experience the city.
Schedule a visit by emailing us or by calling 773.643.4411.
The Neighborhood and the City
The Disciples Divinity House is immediately adjacent to the main quadrangle of the University of Chicago. The University is located in Hyde Park, a racially and culturally diverse neighborhood alongside Lake Michigan and eight miles south of Chicago’s Loop. Hyde Park is noted for its tree-lined streets, coffee shops and bookstores, and as the future home of the Obama presidential library. Around the corner and down the street from the Disciples Divinity House are four denominational seminaries and several museums, including the Museum of Science and Industry, the University's Oriental Institute and Smart Museum, and the DuSable Museum of African American History.
The city of Chicago provides a culturally and morally engaging setting for theological preparation and the study of religion. It is a city of neighborhoods, with museums, orchestras, opera, jazz clubs, dance companies, theater, and major league sports as well as vigorous economic activity. The magnificent architecture of the city is enhanced by lakefront parks, beaches, and boulevards. At the same time, the social, political, and economic challenges of urban life can be taken up firsthand.
