在过去几个月里，澳大利亚的COVID-19大流行达到了一个新的阶段. By a miracle of scientific collaboration and creativity – and sheer hard work by scientists around the world – we now have multiple reliable, effective vaccines against this coronavirus. In Australia this means government and institutional plans are focussed on achieving very high vaccination rates in order to end lockdowns and reopen borders while preserving life and health as far as possible.
In coming weeks the University Executive (comprising the Vice-Chancellor and the College Principals) will need to take decisions which support a full resumption of the University of Divinity’s mission of education, research and community service in 2022 – and which ensure a safe and healthy environment for all our staff and students. In relation to vaccination status, 这些决定可能会因学院而略有不同, 根据教派和业主设定的占用要求, 以及澳大利亚不同政府制定的监管要求.
Read the full statement to find out what this will mean for you as members of the University community for the remainder of 2021.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for the time being graduations are unable to be held in the customary manner and will be replaced with online ceremonies.

随着国家为应对COVID-19大流行而加强限制, 如果你是STFE或CPE的学生，这学期你要去教牧或实地实习, please read the following:
In Greater Melbourne, regional Victoria and potentially elsewhere, STFE和CPE的位置可能需要调整或改变. 优先考虑的仍然是学生和他们可能接触到的人的安全和福利.
In Victoria, regarding STFE and CPE students and staff, no face-to-face group sessions, or meetings, 或者允许面对面的非正式讨论. All contact for these tasks must be online. The restrictions must be followed. There are no exemptions or work permits for the education tasks that the University of Divinity and its Colleges and students are involved in.
However, 取决于放置的位置和限制级别的细节, 一些医院或教派可能会将实地实习学生纳入其可能享有的豁免. However this should not be assumed. It is important that both the student and the student’s College are clear that any task the student may be asked to do is permitted under the current restriction Stage and also through a relevant exemption that workplace holds.
学生应尽快与学院或STFE协调员讨论他们的工作安排. Assessment tasks may need to be amended, 或部分或全部单位的替代品, 这样学期才能顺利完成. If you are not feeling safe in your placement you should also discuss this with a staff member so an alternative can be found.
And for everyone:
学生和工作人员的健康、安全和福祉是最重要的. 如果需要，请联系适当的支持人员或服务, and encourage and enable others to do so.
