CCSI Study Centers are learning communities strategically located close to university campuses. Study Centers include undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff, and local men and women who want to engage the mainstream academy with Christian perspectives in scholarship, and do it in the context of intentional community.
Some participants are enrolled in a CCSI program; others are pursuing a degree from a local university; still others are involved as life-long learners. Some live in a CCSI student residential facility; many others are part of a CCSI relational network in a university community. Some are involved in local advisory leadership for a Study Center, and others are adult mentors and host families for students.
Study Center activities and events feature formal academic coursework, lectures, conferences, concerts, recitals, drama and other artistic performances, movies, retreats, discussion groups, cohort and one-on-one mentoring, and, for followers of Christ, worship, fellowship, local and global outreach and service, and the many informal dimensions of life-in-community.
