      Where does morality come from? Isn’t science rapidly approaching a complete explanation of nature? Do you ever have doubts about your worldview? Where can I find meaning and fulfillment?  College students around the world are asking themselves and their friends these questions, but there is often no real place to explore these questions alongside brilliant faculty and leading thinkers. Veritas Forums are events that engage students and faculty in discussions about life’s hardest questions and the relevance of Jesus Christ to all of life.
