The University of Divinity was founded in 1910 and provides scholarship in theology, philosophy, and ministry. 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.
