Coolamon College Council
The national body that oversees Coolamon College’s work
as an Agency of the Uniting Church Assembly is called the College
Council. Its members represent all synods and regions of Australia,
and gather for at least one face-to-face meeting each year. National
teleconferences are also held as needed (up to three per year) in
order to monitor the needs, plans, and performance of the college
and its staff.
Members of the College Council come from many backgrounds but have
in common both expertise and interest in theological education and
the processes of the church.
Chairperson of the College Council is Dr Marelle
Harisun; and Rev Jo-Anne Fulton (Dean of Students / Education Developer)
is Secretary. The Principal, Lee
Levett-Olson, is a member ex officio. Full current membership is
available on request.
The Academic Committee is appointed by the College Council to
act as local Executive (in Adelaide) and advisors to the Principal
and staff. The present members are:

Biggs, Ms Sandy Boyce, Mr Craig Mitchell, Rev Dr John Oh, Dr Anne
