What is a Thomistic Institute campus chapter? The Thomistic Institute began its campus chapters program in 2015 and has since expanded to more than 40 campuses worldwide. Each chapter is led by students, who are the “protagonists” and main catalysts of the events. We encourage undergraduate and graduate students to collaborate with each other, with us, and with their faculty to develop lectures, events, and programs built upon the Catholic intellectual tradition. 

St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the greatest philosophers and theologians of the Western tradition, stands at the heart of what we do: bringing top-notch scholars from around the world to speak to campuses in the U.S. and abroad. Our goal is to make the Catholic intellectual tradition vibrantly present to today’s universities.

Chapters are free to organize many different kinds of events. These include selecting speakers from our “Speaker Menu” for a lecture, organizing a reading group, or even planning a conference. We would love to hear your ideas.
