St. Anselm Institute


The St. Anselm Institute for Catholic Thought is a Catholic faculty-run group in its third decade of providing free educational programs to UVA students, faculty, alumni, and the local community.  We offer an annual public lecture series, non-credit minicourses and reading groups, lunch and dinner discussions, and occasional Catholic arts programs and local field trips. Sign up for our monthly event email by visiting us at Registration is sometimes requested because seats fill up, but it’s NEVER too late to begin to appreciate the great riches and holy men and women who have aided the Church in Her thinking across the ages!

The St. Anselm Institute offers inspiring and tuition-free educational programs that challenge and guide university-educated students, faculty and others to think more freely and deeply with the resources of the Catholic intellectual tradition. Their university-level programs of intellectual formation extend and complement the traditional pastoral, liturgical, sacramental and social elements of Catholic Campus Ministry.  As the Institute’s patron St. Anselm famously noted long ago, “faith seeking understanding” is the time-tested Catholic journey that awaits every thinking Catholic adult, whatever their age, professional career or status in life.”     — Most Reverend Bishop C. Barry Knestout, Diocese of Richmond
