University of Divinity

History

The University of Divinity is over a century old, having been established in 1910 as the Melbourne College of Divinity.

1910

The Melbourne College of Divinity (MCD) is founded by an Act of the Victorian Parliament. The College is constituted by a group of churches based in Victoria, and its awards are overseen by its President and Registrar. The founding degrees are the BD and the DD, and the first degrees are awarded in 1913.

1972

The Act is revised, bringing the Roman Catholic Church into the College. The Act allows the recognition of ‘Associated Teaching Institutions’ that teach the degrees of the MCD. The role of Dean is created. A BTheol is created as a new undergraduate degree.

2012

The University of Divinity (UD) begins operation as a University, following approval in 2011 by the Victorian Government. The first Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor are appointed. The teaching institutions are designated as Colleges of the University. In 2016 the Act is revised to be renamed as the University of Divinity Act 1910 with effect from 1 January 2017.

Important Facts

The University of Divinity promotes the highest standards of scholarship in theology, philosophy, and ministry. Through scholarship, the University aims to address the issues of the contemporary world. Founded in 1910 as the Melbourne College of Divinity, the University has a long history of pursuing and achieving these aims.

All students and staff join the University through one of its Colleges. Based in the Australian cities of Melbourne, Adelaide, and Sydney, each College is a unique learning community. The Colleges are supported by a wide range of churches and religious orders that together resource the University as a whole.

The University’s work is further resourced by the Office of the Vice-Chancellor, which provides support to the Colleges and the University’s Council and Academic Board.

Our Vision

  • Together we empower our learning community to address the issues of the contemporary world through critical engagement with Christian theological traditions.

Our Mission

We fulfill our vision through:

  • excellence in learning, teaching, and research;
  • growth of our resources and capacity; and
  • engagement with the churches and community in Australia and internationally.

Strategic Plan 2016-2025

On 25 November 2015, the University Council approved the Strategic Plan 2016-2025. This articulates the University’s aspirations for its identity and activities in 2025 and establishes a series of goals to be achieved from 2016-2018. New goals will be added progressively, with a major review every three years.
