The Lumen Christi Institute is firmly committed to the life of the university at all levels of scholarly pursuit. With this in mind, the Institute endeavors to enable greater acquaintance with the vigor of Catholic thought by sponsoring lectures and conferences, hosting visiting scholars, and organizing graduate and undergraduate courses, symposia, seminars, and faculty roundtables. Our hope is that the riches of the Catholic intellectual tradition may be unearthed, explored, and brought to bear at the heart of university life. And because the desire to understand always holds claim to a certain natural integrity, the relationship of the Lumen Christi Institute to the university can and should be complementary and challenging.

The Lumen Christi Fellows are selected from students at the University of Chicago and other area universities. Fellows demonstrate an interest in the Catholic intellectual tradition and in sharing community with peers. They receive invitations to private events, dinners, and seminars, while committing to reasonable participation in Lumen Christi programs. Fellows are invited to focus on key areas relevant to their interests: Scripture, Theology and Philosophy, Political Thought, Science and Religion, Catholic Literature and Culture, the University and Liberal Education. The Fellows’ leadership team coordinates with Lumen Christi staff on vision and programming. Interested students are encouraged to apply.
