Established in 1910 by the Parliament of the State of Victoria, the University of Divinity (UDiv) is the world's oldest ecumenical degree-granting consortium. University of Divinity was granted approval to operate as Australia's first specialised university from 1 January 2012. The 2010 Centenary celebrated the unique ecumenical vision of the founders.

Today the University of Divinity consists of eleven denominational colleges representing the Anglican, Baptist, Churches of Christ, Coptic Orthodox, Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Uniting Churches, and the Salvation Army.

University of Divinity is committed to ecumenical co-operation in theological education which enables each member institution to be true to its own heritage and commitments, yet at the same time open to the enrichment of engagement with others. The opportunities created by such co-operation are available in few other places in the world.

Our Vision   

Together we empower our learning community to address the issues of the contemporary world through critical engagement with Christian theological traditions. 

Our Mission

We fulfil our vision through:  
  • excellence in learning, teaching, and research,
  • growth of our resources and capacity, and
  • engagement with the churches and community in Australia and internationally.

University of Divinity Logo

The University of Divinity  logo is a star, formed by a constellation of open books. The star is a biblical symbol that appears in the heavens to point wise ones on earth towards the Christ. It is also an Australian symbol, as shown by the federal star and the Southern Cross on the Australian flag. The books which make up the star represent wisdom, and are open to critical interpretation. The gathering of these many parts into a whole expresses the collegiate shape of the University. The gold represents excellence. The distinctive accent is red representing passion and sacrifice, which both flow from and facilitate the study of divinity. The constellation of books creates two stars, one on the outside and one on the inside, illustrating the University's commitment to tradition and innovation: through critical study, the University brings ancient truths into dialogue with the issues of the contemporary world.
