The primary institution where Ratio Christi works is a place from which to move the world. The university is perhaps the single most influential institution shaping civilization. It is the gatekeeper of thought upstream shaping culture downstream. From it come our doctors, lawyers, business and political leaders, journalists, pastors, k-12 educators, and even future professors. The challenge is for the church to realize this; that no greater service can it render both to itself and to the cause of the gospel with which it is entrusted than to try to recapture the universities for Christ, on whom they were all originally founded.
