THE ASLAN SOCIETY is an Interdenominational Fellowship of faculty and staff at Arizona State University who are interested in the relationship of Christian faith with their vocation at the University. Our name is taken from The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis, in which Aslan the Lion symbolizes Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah. The Aslan Society seeks to encourage fellowship, prayer, development, outreach, and service.
