The vision for the Adelaide College of Divinity Incorporated from its very beginnings was to create a place of international standard ecumenical higher education; theology and ministry education, and training for lay and ordained ministries.
The Adelaide College of Divinity was formed in 1979 through the clear purpose of several Christian churches coming together and developing a campus of theological and ministry oriented learning for South Australia.
ACD has a strong national profile in teaching theology and divinity, including ministry, from certificate level to undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
If education is transforming, then we strive to make possible positive social impacts from applied theological scholarship.
We recognise social or denominational outlooks as beneficial and welcome students from diverse backgrounds to our learning community.
Our Mission is to be the accrediting consortium of choice for quality theological and ministry education and training, oriented toward:
High student satisfaction in an open learning community
Leadership in a complex world
Critical thinking and research scholarship
