Engagement and Social Responsibility Plan
In accordance with the Alphacrucis College (AC) mission to equip Christian leaders to change the world, community engagement is Objective 1 in the AC Strategic Plan. It is also central to achieving the impact and outcomes of the AC Academic Framework. The AC Engagement and Social Responsibility Plan exists to foster and facilitate excellence in local, state, national and international community engagement among AC students and faculty. This is undertaken via AC campuses, delivery sites and third parties across almost every state of Australia. It also includes global engagement, through campuses, third parties and partnerships in Auckland, Finland, the Netherlands, England, Northern Ireland, the United States of America and the Philippines.
The AC Engagement and Social Responsibility Plan integrates existing and new activities that promote AC values and strengthen: research and scholarship; learning and teaching; and student services and support. It draws upon the capacities of staff and students in its collaboration with communities in Australia and overseas. The plan also provides a broader and well-grounded perspective for research and study, in order to meet social responsibilities. AC provides a Christian educational environment based on the biblical injunction for primary responsibility to the other, the stranger, the outsider and care for human and natural environments.
