The Veritas Forum partners with Christian thought leaders, professors, and campus fellowships to support the intellectual credibility of Christianity in the university and the broader public sphere. Veritas is propelled by an ambitious vision to see universities become places where the big questions asked by students are not the reason they lose their faith, but the reason they find it.
Driving this vision are three core pillars of work: campus dialogue, community formation, and content engagement. We come alongside students, faculty, and campus ministers to help create Forums on university campuses around the world that invite intellectually curious students and scholars to explore life’s big ideas. In support of this work, we connect, form, and train networks of students and faculty leaders who carry on the conversations through journals and scholarship, and we extend the conversations to global audiences through digital media.
The first Veritas Forum took place at Harvard in 1992, and today nearly 200 universities across the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia host Forums, and have engaged over 800,000 students, faculty, and university community members.
"Veritas" is the Latin word for truth—and a word commonly found in university mottos; it refers to our belief that truth can be sought and found. "Forum" refers to our commitment to creating spaces where ideas can be openly shared and discussed.
We are grounded and motivated by the historic Christian faith that seeks to love God and neighbor. We affirm the Nicene Creed and are ecumenical and invitational in our approach.
The Veritas Forum has been certified as one of the Best Christian Workplaces in 2023 for a commitment to strong employee engagement and a flourishing workplace culture.
