Veritas Pro Christo et Ecclesia

The original motto of Harvard College was Veritas Pro Christo et Ecclesia, "Truth for Christ and the Church." Its present motto is Veritas.

Don't miss Thomas Sowell's discussion of the firing of Harvard President Lawrence Summers and the repercussions far beyond Cambridge:

"Today Harvard University is renowned but it has lost the sense of dedication that built it back in 1636. The faculty run the university, as Lawrence Summers has painfully discovered, and they run it in their own narrow self-interest."

See the rest of Sowell's article here.
