Events at Member & Partner Organizations

If you are a member Study Center and have upcoming events you would like on this page, send information to [email protected]

Dear Friends of CCSC,

The following is our attempt to meet a need that has surfaced among Consortium members and partners for clearer and better news about what is happening at our Member Study Centers, our Partner Organizations, and the Consortium itself. We intend our “CCSC News & Events” email, which appears monthly, usually during the first week of the month, to highlight several things.

First, we want to focus on events at our member or partner institutions that will occur during the month, or registrations for events occurring perhaps several months away, but needing some advance notice. We can’t of course include everything that is happening during any given month (you are doing way too much for that!), but we do hope to focus on special items of interest that you, as a Study Center Program Director or a Partner Organization liaison, would want to know about. Please send us items from your organization you think we should include, though we can’t promise to include everything since we don’t want this email to be too long. Our “Events at Member & Partner Organizations” page on our website is intended to be the comprehensive place for such items, and there will always be a link to this page at the end of the CCSC News & Events email so you can dig a little deeper, if you would like.

Second, we want to tell you about news items from our members or partners that we think will be of interest to you. For instance, one item might be a college Partner Organization announcing that they are seeking applicants for teaching posts at the college, information we believe to be vitally important for those Study Centers working with grad students who are seeking employment. This kind of entry helps the Partner Organization disseminate information about their programs and needs, while also helping the Study Center find out information that will help it in its tasks.

Thirdly, we want to let you know what we are planning and implementing from the Consortium offices, too. We have some exciting announcements, and in the email we will be following up those announcements with updates throughout the year.

We hope this page and the CCSC News & Events email will encourage you with the good work being done throughout the study center movement.

The list below are Member Study Centers represented by the blue university icon and Partner Organizations represented by the red pin icon.

Graduate Assistantship

 

Gordon College’s STEM-designated master’s in finance program is a better, faster, more affordable alternative to an MBA. This 12-month degree is not just for business, math, or economics majors — it’s also great for those looking to transition into finance from a liberal arts background!

We’ve earmarked a Grad Assistant position — which reduces tuition by two-thirds — for a CCSC student.  New cohorts starting in both summer and autumn.

Carolina Way Camp 2019

 

FOUR GREAT DAYS BEFORE FOUR GREAT YEARS

 

 

 

Carolina Way immediately smoothed my transition to college, as I was introduced to 100 people that all desired to pursue their faith in college. It was great to have a group of people right off the bat that I knew and could talk to and hang out with. It truly was the best way to kick off my college experience.  – James W., first-year camper (Raleigh, NC)

Wilberforce Academy Global Summit 2019

 

October 17-20, 2019
(Minneapolis-St Paul area)

 

The 2019 Wilberforce Academy Global Summitaims to explore what it means for redemptive change agents to become the kinds of leaders who will help others find that the path to Jesus Christ is the path to liberation and human flourishing. “For all creation waits with eager anticipation for the sons of God to be revealed” (Romans 8:19).

Questions:
    • What are the internal and external challenges to leadership in your society?
    • What traps leaders and what releases them?
    • How does Jesus’ model of leadership development inform us?
    • What does redemptive leadership look like in different sectors?
