Scott Christian University partners with a number of academic institutions in several capacities. Academically Scott partners with several institutions to offer accreditation for their programmes or to allow them to offer curriculum developed at SCU under certain terms and conditions. Other partnerships allow resources and facilities to be shared. Sharing library journals and e-resources through partnerships and collaboration expands the accessible information resources to all involved parties. In the future SCU hopes to partner with other universities and academic institutions to provide cross-cultural exchange programmes for students and faculty as well as engaging in joint research ventures.
All partnerships and collaborations fall under the Office of Quality Assurance and Academic Collaboration. Our desire is to see SCU continue to grow in the department of Academic Collaboration and reap increasing benefits from these collaborations and partnerships.
