Established by Pius XII at the Pontifical Lateran University with the Apostolic Constitution Ad Uberrima (June 3, 1958), the Pontifical Pastoral Institute became an integral part of the university on May 17, 1959, with John XXIII’s Motu Proprio Cum inde.

In his addresses to the Pontifical Lateran University (February 16, 1980, January 23, 1987, and November 9, 1987), John Paul II entrusted to the Pontifical Pastoral Institute the task of research and pastoral formation, together with that of stimulating and encouraging the theological and philosophical disciplines in a direction focused on the concrete man in his human existence and his experience of faith.

The Institute provides specializations in Pastoral Theology and in Social Doctrine of the Church at the License and Doctorate levels.
