We have a strong academic staff community over 20 senior academics and professionals. Underpinning our student and staff community is a values-based ethos, rather than as a rules-based one.

The College staff manage its core functions and is lead by an Executive team of the Master, College Dean & Vice-Master, Assistant College Dean, Chief Financial and Operating Officers, Executive Director of Engagement, Director of Student Success & Wellbeing, and Associate Dean Academic Enrichment.

The College is affiliated with the Uniting Church in Australia although from its foundation it has been ‘open to students of all faiths or none’ and it operates through an independent Council, chaired by Richard Loveridge.
