Scott Christian University (SCU) is the place to be. We offer quality higher education with Christian bend whereby, the student is equipped with not only the necessary knowledge but also with skills for service and character formation. The office of the Dean of Students exists as a liaison between the student body and University Administration to provide a cohesive academic and Christian community. The office provides quality and timely services to the students. At SCU, students are valued and find an environment conducive for learning that also offers extra-curriculum activities. Addressing students’ physical, social, spiritual and emotional needs is important to this office. We do this by engaging in open, honest, transparent and sincere interaction with students.
SCU’s Mission is to glorify God by providing quality programmes of education and training, promoting research, preservation and transmission of knowledge, skilled services and inculcating Godly character for sustainable holistic transformation of individual and society. Every staff member has a personal commitment and collective responsibility to turn SCU’s mission and vision into a reality. This greatly enriches and enhances capacity building and team spirit enabling students to pursue their academic skills and character development with minimal difficulty.
SCU’s Vision is to become a dynamic centre of excellence in teaching, learning, research and holistic service to society for God’s glory. It is therefore the objective of the office of the Dean of Students to have well rounded students in the areas of academics, skills and character development and to enhance the students’ experience at SCU through offering relevant quality services and activities that impact the lives of students. Prayer, active listening and upholding University rules and regulations ensure that students receive effective and timely service.
Some of these services are a medical scheme for students to participate in, counseling services, internship possibilities for students which can lead to future ministry and/or employment, and an annual student career fair where students can be advised on career choices as well meet recruiters who come with work/job opportunities.
