The Augustinian Institute

The Augustinian Institute solidifies the University’s efforts to establish and support initiatives that flow from Villanova’s rich Augustinian heritage. We serve as both an agent and a resource for giving Augustine’s thought a vibrant place within Villanova’s academic and community life and for effectively bringing Augustine’s voice into contemporary times.
