Faculties & Departments


There are seven faculties, with Theology taught in partnership with the Auckland Consortium for Theological Education -a cooperative venture of five autonomous theological colleges. Faculties are each headed by a Dean, who is usually supported by a Faculty Registrar, Administrative Officer and other administrative staff. The Dean is responsible for coordinating the academic and research activities of the individual department and liaises with both the Registry and the Senate committees on regulations, staff appointments, buildings, research funding, library facilities, timetabling, etc. The faculty and departmental offices provide assistance to students who are encouraged to contact the relevant staff for information and advice.


Each faculty is a sub-committee of Senate. This body includes all the professors, heads of academic departments, and elected representatives of non-professorial staff and students. Senate takes advice from Education and Research Committees, from specialist committees (dealing for example with the Library, and Information Technology) and the faculties.


Senate is consulted on academic matters by the University's governing body, a Council of 18 members, comprising representatives of staff, students, graduates and ministerial appointees. The Vice-Chancellor (the chief executive officer who manages the academic and administrative affairs of the University) is also a member. Council is chaired by the Chancellor.
