Knox College and the Institute for Christian Studies Sign Historic Lease Agreement

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that Knox College and the Institute for Christian Studies (ICS) announce the signing of a lease that will see ICS move its operations to the premises of Knox College, effective August 1, 2018. This initial lease is for a term of five years. Knox College is one of the Toronto School of Theology's member schools, and ICS is an affiliated member.

We are extremely grateful for this opportunity to relocate our graduate school to the campus of Knox College,” said ICS President Ronald A. Kuipers. “This move not only helps us achieve greater cost certainty in a challenging real estate market, it also creates exciting opportunities for ICS faculty and students to work more closely with our colleagues at Knox.”

Knox College Principal John A. Vissers said, “Knox College is delighted to welcome ICS to its premises as an institution that shares a commitment to the Reformed tradition. We expect this agreement to benefit both schools economically, and to provide new opportunities for ICS and Knox to serve the church and the wider community.”  

ICS’s new location will be in the northeast wing of Knox College’s lower level, at the heart of the University of Toronto’s St. George Campus.

Knox College is a theological school of The Presbyterian Church in Canada, a federated College of the University of Toronto, and a founding member of the Toronto School of Theology, and it holds accreditation through the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.

The Institute for Christian Studies is a community-supported graduate school in the Kuyperian stream of the Reformed tradition, and an affiliate member of the Toronto School of Theology. It operates under charter from the Government of Ontario to grant the MA and PhD degrees in Philosophy, and the Master of Worldview Studies degree.
