Rev. Dr Andrew Sloane recently returned from his sabbatical in England and, in our Chapel service last Tuesday, it was announced that he has accepted the role of Director of Postgraduate Studies. In this newly created role Andrew will oversee postgraduate coursework and postgraduate research. He will also be working closely with both the Australian College of Theology (ACT) and the University of Divinity. Morling College is delighted to have a theologian and academic of Andrew’s calibre advocating for and on behalf of our postgraduate students, whilst ensuring that Morling’s contribution to the academy is of the highest standard.
One of the privileges of being the Director of Postgraduate Studies is launching Morling’s Postgraduate Scholarship Fund. Morling’s “Postgraduate Luncheon” showcased some of our exceptional Higher Degree Research students and Andrew affirms that, “We at Morling College have been seeking to strengthen our commitment to theological scholarship and to grow our postgraduate student body. This exciting development furthers those goals and also expresses our commitment to both the University of Divinity and the Australian College of Theology.”
Rev. Dr Ross Clifford, Director of The Morling Foundation and Principal of Morling College, agrees: “This is a great initiative of The Morling Foundation. The Foundation is committed to academic excellence in the fields of postgraduate research and in training the next generation of pastors, teachers, academics and professionals.”
