What is great about Anselm House is that it helps budding leaders combine sound intellect with deep faith in Jesus Christ.
What so many drive apart, Anselm House draws together in following the ancient Augustinian dictum that faith seeks understanding.
Anselm House performs an invaluable service bridging the Christian and academic worlds. They are excellently situated to help Christian students and faculty, and the Christian reading public, make best use of the university—and the university world to feel the force of Christian truths.
Anselm House belongs to a consortium of Christian Study Centers at universities across the country. Our Study Center is our house and community space for quiet reading, group discussions, and learning. Coffee is always brewing, there’s always someone reading in the library, and our academically trained staff on hand for questions or discussions. All are welcome.
St. Anselm of Canterbury was a theologian and philosopher who grounded his intellectual rigor in an active spiritual life of prayer and devotion. He coined the phrase “faith seeking understanding,” which encapsulates part of our mission. He was also the first to formulate an important argument for God’s existence, among other intellectual and religious accomplishments. Anselm’s life of thoughtful faith and interaction with secular learning is a model for how we engage with the University.
Our community is for anyone and everyone—undergraduates, grad students, faculty and staff, pastors and church workers, academics, theologians and scholars. We welcome people from all faith backgrounds.
