The Center of Christian-Muslim Engagement for Peace and Justice was established at LSTC in 2006 to foster and deepen relations between Christians and Muslims, and to make significant contributions to peace, mutual understanding, cooperation and respect among people of all faiths. LSTC offers a strong core of classes in Islam and Christian-Muslim relations, which, along with such courses offered by other ACTS schools, enables students to take a concentration in Christian-Muslim studies.

The Center sponsors workshops and conferences including an annual Sacred Scriptures Conference that has examined the ideas of others, human suffering, and love of God and neighbor. For information, contact CCME director, Dr. Michael Shelley at For ACTS courses in inter-religious studies, see our brochure.
