Carey Staff Team_2023_03

Carey’s teaching team is a community of scholars who are at the cutting edge of integrative theology. They are highly qualified and respected academics whose research outputs have made Carey the highest ranked non-university in Aotearoa.* They are also active practitioners who are applying what they learn and teach in church, mission, and community contexts. Above all, they are followers of Jesus who want to live out their faith in authentic Christ-centred lives.

In addition to the resident staff, learning at Carey is enriched by contributions from adjunct and visiting lecturers, including international scholars, Māori Christian leaders and academics, and practitioner theologians with ministry and mission experience.

Our learning prioritises relationship, and Carey’s teachers take seriously the values of ako and whakawhanaungatanga. They take a genuine personal interest in their students and their formation, and authentic relationships develop as they sit together at lunch and share in worship and community events. Both on‑site and distance students find Carey lecturers accessible and friendships often continue long beyond a student’s time at Carey.

We have a holistic view of every student at Carey and our support staff provide care and nurture to support academic success. Inclusivity is encouraged in our community and we are deeply committed to our Tiriti journey with specific staff support for our Maori and Pasifika students.

* Performance Based Research Fund (PBRF) 2018 Quality Evaluation. In the important AQS (S) ranking (which measures the intensity of research relative to staffing numbers), Carey Baptist College was the highest ranked non-university.
