The Veritas Society

The Veritas Society

The oil lamp is one of the early emblems of the University of La Verne. In Jewish and Christian iconography, it is a symbol of the "lighting of the way" for the living, the righteous, and the wise.

The founders of the University of La Verne believed strongly in their mission to continue the pursuit of higher education through truths rooted in Judeo-Christian ethics. It was their desire that their precious veritasvalues which that had been handed down from generation to generation would light the way far into the future. Taking its name from these concepts, the Veritas Society was created to honor people who have demonstrated their personal dedication to preserve and pass on the light of the veritas.

Members of the Veritas Society include remarkable individuals and families who have given to the university through estate plans, retirement plans, life insurance policies, endowments, and other life income vehicles. These alumni, faculty and staff members, parents, and friends maintain a deep connection with the university by realizing the vision of the founders and creating the future of the University of La Verne.

Membership Benefits

Veritas Society membership provides an array of benefits including an invitation to our annual Giving Society reception, a special memento acknowledging your induction, and a personal liaison to the university.

The Office of University Advancement is pleased to host one special event per year exclusively for members of our three giving societies. This event is our way of saying thank you, keeping you updated about important developments at the university, and giving you an opportunity to share your passion for La Verne with like-minded Leos, including members of the Green & Orange and The 1891 Society.

Membership is our way of recognizing your remarkable commitment to La Verne, and is without obligation. We gladly honor requests to remain anonymous on university publications.
