The Augustine Collective is a student-driven network of Christian journals on thirty college campuses. Launched in 2010, the Augustine Collective is now run as a program of The Veritas Forum, an international non-profit devoted to elevating thoughtful Christian perspectives and promoting dialogue on campus and in society. The journals seek to reinvigorate thoughtful conversations about faith on campus by publishing student essays, reviews, art, and poetry inspired by the conviction that the Christian Gospel encompasses the whole of life itself.
