Claremont Lincoln University (CLU) is a graduate university.[1]

History

In March 2008, the Board of Trustees at Claremont School of Theology voted to establish a new interreligious university. The purpose of the “University Project”, as it was known, was to create a new educational environment in which representatives of the worlds’ religions could study together and address social problems – including religious violence.[citation needed] The Claremont School of Theology Board officially incorporated the school in January 2010, the name of the University was first revealed on May 16, 2011, and classes launched in Fall 2011. The founding president was Jerry D. Campbell.[2]

In Spring 2014, Claremont Lincoln became an independent University separate from Claremont School of Theology. [3]
