Queen’s College Celebrates Important Anniversaries

From the October issue of Anglican Life:

On September 5th, 1978, the Report of the Tri-Diocesan Committee on the Role of Queen’s College recommended that upon the appointment of the new provost there be a “study of theological education on behalf of the three diocese to recommend and implement appropriate programs …” September 5th, 2018, was the 40th Anniversary of that critical and courageous decision to launch a new age for theological education at Queen’s College and in the province.  The new Provost at the time, The Rev’d Dr. Canon Frank Cluett, facilitated the work of the Commission on the Future Role of Queen’s College, which presented its Report to the Corporation on April 27, 1981. Canon Cluett then led the development of a renewed curriculum and Faculty of Theology at Queen’s College.

This is also the 50th Anniversary of the move of Queen’s College Faculty of Theology from Forest Road to the campus of Memorial University. The initial move was in March 1968. September 1968 launched the start of the first full academic year in the Main Building. Field and Spencer Halls, which were part of Queen’s College, had moved in September 1967.

Read all about these anniversaries and the celebrations that were held in the October 2018 issue of Anglican Life which comes out soon!
