The Veritas Forum helps students and faculty ask life's hardest questions. Many of the world's leading universities were founded to answer the big "why" questions. The Veritas Forum’s mission is to help students confront these questions anew. The first Veritas Forum was planned by students, faculty, and chaplains at Harvard University in 1992. Since then, over 200 universities in North America and Europe have hosted over 2,000 Forums.
