The History of Adelaide College of Divinity

Adelaide College of Divinity (ACD) is an accredited higher education provider offering diploma, associate and bachelor's degrees, graduate diplomas, master, and doctoral degrees in ministry. It is also a Registered Training Organization offering certificates and a diploma. The ACD offers qualifications in its own right in the vocational and higher education sectors and, except for the period 2011-2013, its teaching staff have formed the Department of Theology at Flinders University in the Faculties of Education, Humanities and Law.  Within the college grounds is a labyrinth designed by Adelaide stained glass artist Cedar Prest to honour the journeys of refugees and migrants. Symbols incorporated in the labyrinth include a large chalice and a central wafer - a reference to Holy Communion. A stylized version of the labyrinth is used as the college logo.
