The Thomistic Institute’s Campus Chapters program began in 2015, and has since expanded to over 40 campuses worldwide.  

What are Chapters: Campus Chapters are led by students and their leadership teams. At the Thomistic Institute, Student Leaders are the ‘protagonists’ and the 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 stands at the heart of what we do, bringing top-notch Thomistic scholars from around the world to speak to and present at student events and conferences throughout the year.  We believe Aquinas provides a theological backbone for intellectual evangelization. With St. Thomas as our touchstone, our speakers and events open endless possibilities for discussion and growth in intellect and faith! 

There are many different kinds of events your chapter can organize: select a speaker from our ‘Speaker’s Menu’ for a lecture, organize a reading group or even a conference! There are many new, fun and interesting ways to be involved and we would love to hear your ideas and proposals.
