Mission & Vision


To inspire and nurture a thoughtful pursuit of Christ one student, one professor, one university at a time.  


According to the U.S. Census Bureau there are 20 million college and university students in the United States today, attending 4,200 institutions of higher education. Of these, some 300,000 students are enrolled in Christian liberal arts colleges affiliated with the Council for Christian Colleges and Schools, representing approximately 1.5% of total college and university enrollment.

While we affirm the important role of traditional Christian liberal arts schools, our concern is for the vast majority of students who are at secular institutions.  We envision many students, faculty, and staff at these schools engaging Christian scholarship and community in transformational ways, with expanding and enduring influence around the world.
