The institute offers a variety of programs, including conferences, colloquia, and lectures:

Saint Anselm Conference
The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies holds a conference every three years. The Sixth Saint Anselm Conference will be held April 21-22, 2017. The call for papers will go out later this spring.

Metaphysics Colloquium
Inspired by Pope John Paul II who in his encyclical letter Fides et Ratio spoke concerning the need for continuing philosophical speculation in order to come to an understanding of the Catholic faith. The Metaphysics Colloquium invites philosophers and theologians from the New England area to discuss and debate issues in metaphysics with a view to offering the ecclesiastical and scholarly worlds insights and principles upon which to ground their work. The Saint Anselm Journal offers presentations given at previous colloquia.

The 2017 Metaphysics Colloquium will be announced in the coming months. 

The Saint Anselm Lecture
An annual lecture by a distinguished academician is held in celebration of the feast day of the college's patron saint. The lecture is open to all members of the college community as well as the general public.  

2017 Summer Research Grant
The Institute for Saint Anselm Studies is accepting applications for the 2017 John and Judy Paul Summer Research Grant, which is offered to doctoral candidates and those who recently completed doctoral studies (within last four years) working on some area of Anselm studies. The Institute provides the recipient with an opportunity to do research for a week in the extensive O'Rourke Saint Anselm Collection at Saint Anselm College.
