Who We Are
Founded as a result of academic collaborations, which spanned from 2003 through 2010, the Thomas International Center is dedicated to inquisitiveness, discernment and higher learning. Its goal is a broad one: cultural renewal in light of Western and Christian intellectual traditions.
The Thomas International Center aims in the long term to build a world-respected international university in the Catholic intellectual tradition. In December 2015, the Center announced a plan to launch an online university. The online university will foster and speed the building of the physical university.
To accomplish its goal, the Center sponsors/provides respected academic speakers, programs and courses to:
- Work with students at nationally renowned universities to help them achieve integrated education, drawing on the classical and Christian heritage of Western civilization;
- Promote rigorous scholarship in the classical and Christian intellectual tradition, especially as represented by Thomas Aquinas, which offers a sound framework for addressing the many social problems we face in the world today;
- Sponsor programs, open to the public, to clarify important issues facing society;
- Collaborate with legal experts, philosophers, theologians, business leaders, and academics who conduct research projects on philosophical issues.
