Christian Study Centers

A List of Christian Study Centers Serving State and Private Secular Universities

What are Christian Centers (CSCs)?

Although there is no clearly identified CSC model, they have some core elements. CSCs serve populations on state and private secular campuses and are independent from those universities. They share a commitment to engaging Christian intellectual traditions with the intellectual work of the university: CSCs believe that the knowledge work of the university has inherent worth and aim to support that work through their programs and communities. They seek to serve and minister to students, faculty, and staff at institutions of higher education in their vocations as students, researchers, and participants in the academic mission of the university. For more information see the Consortium of Christian Study Centers.
