Adelaide College of Divinity (ACD)'s students develop the willingness and the ability to examine critically the Christian theological tradition and bring that tradition into dialogue with the issues of contemporary society including: the plurality of Australian life and culture, especially the diversity of its spiritual and religious expressions, and of the opportunities for conversation and dialogue that this offers to Christian theology, ministry and mission; and the ethical and social justice issues engaging Church and society.

ACD offers tertiary theological education, and encourages students from a wide range of religious backgrounds to study at ACD. They provide professional and academic preparation for ministry, with strong integration of practice and theory. The ACD provides Higher Education and VET courses.

The ACD Campus is a place where people meet to deepen their understanding of the Christian faith, to develop skills in ministry or to pursue higher academic study within a lively research community.
