Criterion was founded in 1961 by then-dean Jerald Brauer. Historically this journal reflects the ongoing life of the Divinity School community. It generally contains pieces such as the annual Alumnus of the Year lecture, a sermon preached during Wednesday worship, or a lecture delivered at one of our conferences.

Criterion is sent out free to all alumni for whom we have current addresses; if you are interested in being added to our mailing list or have a change of address please let us know: email terren @ uchicago dot edu.

If you would prefer to go green and not receive paper copies by mail, please let us know that too! Circa and Criterion are made available free of charge online in PDF format. Download the free Adobe Acrobat reader to get started.
