SCIO’s mission is to foster scholarly engagement, intellectual excellence, and authentic Christian spirituality and the connections between them within an international academic community at Oxford.
SCIO strives to do this by
- Helping students drawn largely from CCCU colleges realise their academic and personal potential at Oxford, at graduate or professional school, and throughout life
- Encouraging high quality research on the part of its staff and faculty from CCCU colleges as individuals and as members of research programmes based at SCIO
- Cultivating a community of alumni who support each other and SCIO’s mission
- Enabling its staff to develop professionally and flourish personally
