Center of Theological Inquiry

Luce Hall Renovation

The Center of Theological Inquiry (CTI) in Princeton, New Jersey is an independent nonprofit that brings together leading thinkers from around the globe to collaborate on interdisciplinary research initiatives. By convening theologians and scholars in the humanities and sciences, the institution is well positioned to connect research conversations with practitioners and policymakers.

As the result of a Strategic Planning process that aims to strengthen connections with the public and community, CTI embarked on a renovation of Luce Hall located in the Mercer Hill historic district. The project will transform the facility into a state-of-the-art building, increasing collaborative work spaces for visiting scholars, creating more assembly areas for its events, and providing suitable spaces and technology for digital programming and global outreach. The project requires the careful navigation of local Princeton approvals and community relations efforts
