Oxford – Recognised Independent Centres – OXCIS

OXCIS is the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies, this is a RIC or Recognised Independent Centre – The University has conferred the status of ‘Recognised Independent Centre’ on a number of educational charities in the Oxford area which are not part of the University, but which work with the University in research and teaching.

RIC’s are on the Oxford backbone network and use central IT Services for some of their needs.

Anyway my interest is that there is a new IT Manager Fasih Khan, who has relocated here from London and has stepped into a building , nearing completion after 10 years, and is tasked with setting up the IT at a time when Tone and ICP projects are coming through, my job is to help him talk to the right people and take advantage of these improvements.

As well as having a tour of the high quality building, it was a pleasure to meet Fasih, and learn of his love of Badminton, so I have put him in touch with The BITSS club who meet on Tuesday nights at the Park Sports Centre in Wheatley on Tuesday night, 7-8.20pm, cost is £3 and all abilities are welcome.2015-06-03 14.34.19 oxcis-tiles Fasih-OXCIS
