As Australia's leading Catholic university, we are committed to providing a distinctive perspective on higher education: one that will equip you and the staff within your organisation with the skills and knowledge to respond to the challenges of our contemporary world.
We offer programs that equip you with a capacity to think theologically, while directly fostering the biblical and theological literacy to:
support and strengthen leadership capabilities
affirm the nexus of school and parish community
develop a deep appreciation of a relationship with God as defining the unique vision and central mission of Catholic education, health and social service organisations.
We can work with you to develop the theological capacity of your staff, and to equip leaders with an understanding of how enhanced ethical standards in decision-making have a positive impact on organisational success, communities and society at large.
For senior staff in Catholic agencies and organisations, we have developed a full suite of flexible educational and development opportunities anchored by the concepts of leadership in Catholic identity and mission, formation and health and social ethics. They are specifically tailored to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to lead the Catholic identity, mission and ethos of your organisation with integrity, authenticity and authority.

Our approach: A high-quality learning and transformative educational environment
All of our programs are designed to address the real-world issues that face Catholic organisations and agencies today, and they are underpinned by robust scholarship and demonstrated research excellence. We offer multiple points of engagement and a variety of delivery modes, and a learning design that is responsive to emerging questions and contextual need.
We guide participants through a practical engagement with theologies that:
Embrace, enhance and integrate individual experiences and perspectives;
Explore specific contextual challenges and opportunities facing the individual and the organisation as a whole.
Delivering on your aims and objectives
We take great pride in the expertise of our staff and the work that they do in responding to, and collaborating with, agencies and organisations from across Australia. We are committed to understanding your organisational needs and objectives to ensure that our programs are responsive to your organisational needs.
