CHC pursues an active research culture with many staff achieving a high level of research output in addition to their teaching and industry engagement commitments.
More than half of the staff possess research Doctorate qualifications and a number are currently completing PhDs at Australian universities.
Research output includes journal articles in academic and industry publications, presentations and papers at local, national and international conferences, books and book chapters, and a range of other dissemination vehicles to showcase the work of CHC academics.
Research, including collaborative research with academics at other local and international colleges and universities, is an integral part of CHC’s continued progress towards university status. This progress will also include the development of Research Higher Degrees (eg. Masters (Research) and Doctorates), an increased proportion of staff holding research qualifications, and the supervision of students undertaking research degrees.
In July 2016, CHC hosted its inaugural Research Symposium – Learning and Loves: Reimagining Christian Education. Visit the Symposium website for more information, including video of the Opening and Closing keynotes.
