Discover a truly Christian education at UMN.

Our Colin MacLaurin Fellows Program offers UMN students one of the most innovative programs of Christian education and formation available at any public university.

Cohort-based Learning

In small groups of no more than 12 students each, fellows explore the Christian faith and how it informs their lives alongside academically trained Anselm House staff.

Building Community

Each cohort lasts a full academic year, so students can learn and grow together through discussions, meals, prayer, and fellowship. And the cohorts build on one another, so that the Fellows experience can continue through one’s time at the U of M. Fellows take two retreats together each year as a community, and have the opportunity to live in residential housing near campus with other fellows.

Innovative Christian Education

Each fellow receives a small library of curated books and readings from the rich resources of the Christian tradition to guide group discussions on what the Christian faith means for all of life. Through these discussions, students learn to place themselves, their relationships, and their work within God’s story. Fellows can also apply for research awards (up to $1,000 per year).
