—Pope St. John Paul II, Veritatis Splendor
The Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life exists to bring faithful Catholic scholarly reflection to bear on the most pressing ethical questions in contemporary culture—questions of marriage and sexuality, war and peace, life and death, as well as economic and social justice.
Through research, writing, and academic conferences, the Veritas Center seeks to combat what Pope Benedict XVI described as “the dictatorship of relativism,” promoting the natural moral law, illuminated by the light of faith, in order to defend both human freedom and dignity in the public square.
American higher education is in turmoil like never before. Student debt is at an all-time high, the liberal arts are imperiled, debate and free speech are threatened by politicization. An “anything goes” morality is the norm on many campuses. Join the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life as they discuss American Higher Education.
