About the Saint Benedict Institute

The Saint Benedict Institute was founded by Catholic scholars at Hope College to engage the academy from an explicitly Catholic perspective and offer spiritual and intellectual formation to Catholic students. Through a variety of initiatives and with the cooperation of Hope College’s Campus Ministries, the Union of Catholic Students, and the Diocese of Grand Rapids, the Saint Benedict Institute provides an integral Catholic witness and seeks to strengthen Catholic identity amongst the Catholic students as well as encourage all Christians in their faith on the Hope College campus.
