Our Mission

Cornerstone is a publication that celebrates the truth and beauty of the Christian Gospel in order to glorify God, edify the Church, and reach the non-believer. We aim to provoke spiritual thought on and around the campuses of Brown and RISD. We publish works of art, prose, and poetry of all denominational persuasions that exhibit intelligent and creative approaches to current events, history, and our Christian faith. Cornerstone is part of a student-driven network of Christian journals on college campuses called the Augustine Collective, which is a program of the Veritas Forum.

Cornerstone Alumnae

In 2012, Cornerstone Magazine was founded by students at Brown and RISD. Its first issues were released in the spring and fall of that year. Since then, we have strived to encourage our community to reflect the beauty and truth of the Gospel. Our leaders follow servant leadership, as modeled by Christ. We are grateful to the many alumnae listed below who gave their time, energy, and love to our journal.
