Organisation and Governance

Council

The Council is established by the Sydney College of Divinity Ltd to have responsibility for and exercise oversight of the entire SCD operation, including direct control of membership, legal and financial matters, and risk management, and management of the Office of the Dean, the Korean School of Theology, and the Graduate Research School, and, by delegation to the Academic Board, oversight of all academic policy matters and permissions to graduate.

The Council is led by its Chair, who is also the President of the College. The Constitution provides for membership of up to five employees from Member Institutions, one student, and the Chair of Academic Board ex officio, but Council membership is not ‘representative’ and there is always a majority of external members, several of whom meet the TEQSA definition of ‘independent member’.

The Council members as on October 2019 are 

Mr Peter King President of the College and Chair of Council
Dr Daniel Fanous Employee of a Member Institution
Dr Rob Fringer Employee of a Member Institution
Prof Angelo Karantonis External nominee of a Member Institution
Dr Philip Kariatlis Employee of a Member Institution

Mr John Ryan Financial expertise
Prof Shukri Sanber Tertiary education expertise
Dr Leonard Smith Employee of a Member Institution
