Safeguarding at Anglican Colleges and Universities

Safeguarding at Anglican Colleges and Universities

Respect for the inherent dignity of the whole person:  A fundamental Christian insight, upheld by Anglican tradition, is that human beings are made in the image of God.  Therefore, everyone will be treated with dignity as we seek the formation of whole persons on safe campuses, where children and vulnerable adults are protected from abuse and exploitation. (From CUAC's Identity and Character Declaration)

The Identity and Character of Anglican Higher Education Institutions: A Declaration of Ideals

CUAC Web Logo

  • What is at the core of Anglican colleges and universities and what makes them distinctive?  The CUAC board started its Strategic Planning by crafting a declaration of the values that distinguish Anglican higher education.  It was presented to the members at the Chennai Triennial in January 2017 and is now before members and regional chapters for reflection and implantation.  In May they were adopted by the General Synod of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, for example, as a model for all their church colleges and schools.
