TWO QUALITY COLLEGES BECOME ONE
Alphacrucis College (AC) and Harvest Bible College (HBC) are pleased to announce that from the beginning of 2018 the two colleges will come together in a move that will bolster academic offerings, resourcing and influence in the mission of Christian higher education.
This significant college will retain the name Alphacrucis College and the Harvest legacy will continue in its educational offering, merging two colleges with strong histories of delivering quality higher education courses and shared complementary missions and visions.
Following this merger AC will serve over 4,000 students attending campuses in all Australian states, New Zealand and online, offering Certificates, Diplomas, Bachelor and Masters Degrees, and Doctorates in Christian Ministry, Theology, Leadership, Business, Education, Music, Chaplaincy, Community Services and Social Science.
The merger will also support AC’s vision of becoming a Christian University.
AC’s President, Professor Stephen Fogarty, said of the merger
“This is an excellent opportunity to expand and strengthen AC’s influence, as well as continue the legacy of outstanding Christian higher education in Melbourne. We believe there is great value for the community in an institution that not only educates people for particular professions, but does so from a Christian perspective. That is the goal and the mission of Alphacrucis College.”
In 2018, HBC’s current location in Scoresby will become AC’s Melbourne campus location. HBC staff and students will transfer to AC with the institution’s priority being to deliver uninterrupted and enhanced educational services to students. The combined resources and expertise of both colleges will deliver consistently outstanding teaching and improved graduate outcomes for students.
