Our Mission

CWCIT logo

CWCIT was founded at DePaul University in 2008 to produce research that will serve the church and the academy. To fulfill this mission, we have paid special attention to the World Church that has emerged since the Second Vatican Council and its growth in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

While our focus has been on the present global communion of faith, we also attend to historical, theological and cultural questions that will contribute to a fuller understanding of Catholicism and the dialogue of cultures today.
