Governance

As a College of the University of Divinity, CTC draws its governance from the Catholic hierarchy of Victoria and Tasmania and three affiliated religious institutes in their desire to provide for the education of clergy and laity in the mission of the Church.

Senate

The Senate is the governing body of Catholic Theological College and comprises the residential Bishops of the dioceses of Victoria and Tasmania, the Provincials of religious orders whose seminaries are affiliated with the College, the Master, the Deputy Master, two representatives of the Academic Board, and up to six appointed members.
 

Academic Board

The Academic Board is responsible for the development and implementation of academic policy regarding learning, teaching and research, within the framework of UDiv policies and regulations.
 

Constitution

In 1971, the Archdioceses and Dioceses of Victoria and Tasmania, the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, the Salesians of Don Bosco, the Missionary Society of St Paul, the Society of St Paul (Publications) and the Confraternity of Christ the Priest agreed to act together in a confederated body in academic matters. In 1972, the central body of this federation was then formed and is known as Catholic Theological College. In 1973, the College became a College of the University of Divinity, which was then known as the Melbourne College of Divinity. Since then, six other Religious Institutes have become affiliated members of the College: the Conventual Franciscan Friars (1996), the Dominican Friars (2009), the Missionaries of God’s Love (2014), the Jesuits (2016) and the Salvatorians (2017). The Society of St Paul (Publications) and the Confraternity of Christ the Priest have ceased to be affiliated members of the College.
