In our 2012-2013 Annual Report, we laid out our strategic plan for 2013-2017 with the overall aim to ‘empower students to explore and live out the Christian faith’. We listed four specific aims:

  1. To increase students’ knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith.
  2. To provide inclusive, supportive communities for students to develop their faith and discipleship
  3. To enable students to collectively speak out to be a prophetic voice for change, and
  4. To increase students’ skills, motivation, and confidence to put their faith into action.
