It includes academic staff, researchers, PhD students and master students, with scientific concerns in the socio-human field, especially on the theological profile (church history and Orthodox doctrine studies). Although initially the organizational structure also involved a development in the field of Social Assistance, Sociology, Education Sciences, it has crystallized in time as an eminently theological center.

The center bears the name of Patriarch Miron Cristea, because in church activity carried out in Sibiu (counselor of the Metropolitan Church of Transylvania), Caransebes (bishop) and Bucharest (Metropolitan Prime and Patriarch) he very much supported the theological culture, being himself an erudite theologian, Member of the Romanian Academy.

The head of the center is since the establishment of the Pr. lect. univ. Dr. Daniel Alic.
