But more than that, AST offers a place for research, study and reflection. A place to explore faith and learn how to draw on it to enrich the lives of others. A place where leaders of today and tomorrow gain the knowledge and skills to change and influence our world for the better. Welcome to a different kind of university. Welcome to AST.
