More than six years ago The Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage (CCIH) opened its doors for the first visitors at the office located on the ground floor of the Crown Center for the Humanities at the university’s Lake Shore Campus.

“We quickly grew from an office of bare walls, folding chairs, and empty bookshelves, to an office with lovely art works, comfortable couches, and bookshelves filled with the best literature in Catholic studies. Now these treasures will be moving to an even more beautiful space, “said Dr. Michael Schuck, who led the Center for its first six years.

Cuneo Hall is the latest addition to the Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus. It replaced Damen Hall which was built in 1966. The new four story building bridges Loyola’s campus architectural tradition with the latest, environmentally friendly construction innovations.

Designed to emulate the oldest building on campus, the 100 year old Dumbach Hall, Cuneo Hall is distinguished by a high-performance energy foot print and has 18 classrooms equipped with the state-of –the –art technology.

Cuneo Hall has also became a new home for the Faculty Center for Ignation Pedagogy, The Center for the Human Rights of Children, and Center for Urban Environmental Research and Policy.

Currently CCIH offers a variety of programs designed to meet the interests of a broad audience. The center organizes colloquiums, lecture series, film screenings evenings, student and faculty reading groups, and many other programs.

Every year CCIH provides funding for selected course development or research projects exploring Catholic Church’s heritage and current issues.

Students, faculty and staff are always welcome to use center’s library containing a wide selection of magazines, journals, books, and films.

At its new home CCIH’s dedicated faculty and staff not only will continue helping people to discover and research rich Roman Catholic intellectual heritage, but also will work on creating new programs and traditions.
