The University of Divinity acknowledges the hurt and suffering of abuse victims, survivors, and their families; the failure of the Churches to protect, believe and respond justly to them; and the consequent breach of community trust.
Strategic Goal: Responding to the Royal Commission
The University of Divinity has fourteen Goals in its Strategic Plan through to 2025.
The Strategic Goal, Responding to the Royal Commission, is:
To resource the churches and religious orders and Australian community to make effective and comprehensive responses to the findings of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
A range of actions and projects are being undertaken as part of the Goal, following the appointment of a part-time Project Officer who is based at the Office of the Vice-Chancellor.
