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.
