The University is a time and place for seeking truth
Students, faculty, and chaplains at Harvard University planned the first Veritas Forum event in 1992. Since then, 200+ universities in North America, Europe, and Asia have hosted 2,000+ Forum events.

The university is a time and place designed for seeking truth.

The university offers opportunities for students and faculty to explore the ideas that shape our lives. Driven by a love for the university and its mission to seek truth, The Veritas Forum puts the Christian faith in dialogue with other beliefs and invites participants from all backgrounds to seek truth together.

What we desperately need is more forums like this, where everything is on the table, where we can actually ask the big questions.

Michael Puett
Professor, Harvard

I was an enthusiastic participant in Northwestern’s Veritas Forum this year, and the President’s office was one of the financial supporters. Dialogues about faith are important and meaningful parts of shaping university students.

Morton Schapiro
President, Northwestern University

I love the content that Veritas produces. I have listened to many of their videos, finding them stretching my thinking in ways that take it into wonderful new dimensions.

ROSALIND PICARD
Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The Veritas Forum models for students how to have a civil conversation, how to disagree without being disagreeable, and how to ask the big questions, like ‘Who are you? Why are you here? Where are you going?’

CHARLES LEE
Professor, Stanford Graduate School of Business

The Veritas Forum encouraged and inspired me to start thinking about how my whole life could be integrated into something coherent—spiritually and intellectually. Veritas helped me realize that perhaps I could be called to a life of academia, to be a professor.

Ard Louis
Professor, University of OxforD

To be human is to entertain the what, the how, and more importantly, the why of our existence and the world we inhabit. The Veritas Forum welcomes us to consider such questions alongside colleagues who are ripe and ready for honest discourse.

MIA CHUNG
Professor, Curtis School of Music

I am enthusiastic about The Veritas Forum, an organization dispelling the growing misconception that the Christian faith is not intellectually rigorous, and grounded in the belief that we can and must honestly engage with those from different faith traditions in ways marked by curiosity, civility, and respect.
