Divinity School of Chung Chi College

Divinity School of Chung Chi College, founded in 1963

The Divinity School of Chung Chi College is at present the only theological education institution within a Chinese public university. It takes an open, non-doctrinal and ecumenical approach to theological studies. The historical roots of the Divinity School of Chung Chi College go back as far as 1864 when the Training School of Canton Presbyterian Mission was established at Fati, Guangdong. Chung Chi College had been having religious education and theological training as part of its academic program since 1957; but starting 1962, before joining The Chinese University of Hong Kong, the theological training was separately organized as Church Chi Theological Seminary. In 1968, the Chung Chi Theological Seminary dissolved and its function was transferred to the Theology Division in Chung Chi College's reorganized Department of Philosophy and Religion. In 2004, to strengthen the unique identity of the only theological education institution within a Chinese public university at present, the Theology Division was renamed the Divinity School of Chung Chi College. The Divinity School, under the Theological Council, is mainly financed independently by Church gifts and funds from the Trustees of Chung Chi College; but academically, it is a recognized part of the University. The Divinity School of Chung Chi College is also a full member of the Association for Theological Education in South East Asia and the Hong Kong Theological Education Association.
