Support Staff

Here at Carey we are committed to the notion of ako—being a learning community together, and building a diverse and intercultural community that supports, nurtures and facilitates transformative learning. With our Baptist whakapapa, we expect to encounter Christ in the gathered community. We make space for relationship and conversation. On-site students and staff worship in chapel and eat meals together each week. Distance students have ready access to lecturers by phone, email and video connection. Carey is a supportive community no matter where you are based.

  • Able to have your say in decisions about services

Student Association

The Carey Student Association (SASS) is a voluntary organisation for students, run by students. SASS prioritises building relationships and supporting students through events, activities and peer support. Rebecca Hooper, SASS President, says “our heart is for cultivating a thriving sense of community.” SASS also nominates representatives to Carey’s Academic Committee and Board. SASS hosts its own Facebook group, which we encourage you to join.

Student Complaints Procedure

Carey has systems and processes in place for addressing your concerns or complaints. We aim to provide the best possible solution for resolving complaints as soon as possible, in an amicable manner which will benefit the interests of everyone involved.

“At Carey we believe that the God of mission is at work in the world by the Spirit to renew people and places in Christ. Our calling is to equip Christian leaders with the convictions, competencies, and capacity to participate in that mission, bringing gospel renewal in churches and communities across Aotearoa and around the world.”
