Pastoral Support and Student Services

Pastoral Support and Student Services 

 As a community, Morling places a high priority on providing pastoral and academic support for students. Praying for one another and showing God's love to one another are essential aspects of College life. Students are encouraged to share their needs with one another and offer support to each other. While some might consider seeking support as a sign of weakness, we believe that it is a valued aspect of personal and spiritual formation. At times students will need specific pastoral or academic support, especially if they are also struggling with other life circumstances. No issue is too small to share - especially if it is impacting your life or study! You can find College contacts and other support resources on our website.

In addition, you can access Morling's Sexual Assault and Harassment (SASH) Prevention Policy and Sexual Assault and Harassment Prevention Procedure on the policy page of the Morling website.

Morling's SASH contact officers are Gayle Kent (Chief Community Life Officer - based on the Sydney campus), and Andre Kurniawan (Director of Student Services - based on the Perth-Vose campus),

For our Bible and Theology Students, the ACT also has support services and you can access their ACT Sexual Assault & Sexual Harassment Policy and ACT Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Procedure on the ACT website.

The ACT’s SASH Contact Officer is their Moderation and Inclusion Manager. The SASH Contact Officer receives disclosures and reports and you can contact them on (02) 8937 5301.
