About the Spiritual Care Program

The Spiritual Care Program is a new collaborative initiative of the University under its Strategic Plan. The Program aims to meet emerging needs for spiritual care and chaplaincy in a wide variety of areas such as the health, education, community service, defence force and mining sectors, and, through the University’s Colleges, reaching into faith-based agencies from a range of Christian denominations.

The Program will commence with establishment of a Graduate Certificate in Spiritual Care and to develop specialist streams in related awards at Graduate Diploma and Masters level.

The Spiritual Care Program Director is the University’s lead on the program, accountable to the University Executive. The Director will build partnerships with students, industry, graduate employers, professional associations, agencies and Colleges to support the Program’s development and growth. The Director will lead the creation of the Graduate Certificate and associated business plan in 2023 for a 2024 commencement, and coordinate its delivery by staff from across the University’s Colleges and partner agencies. The Director will also serve part-time as a Lecturer at Whitley College, delivering courses and units in Spiritual and Pastoral Care.
