University awards highest academic honour to Rev Dr Stephen Haar

On 13 October it was announced that the Council of the University of Divinity had resolved to award the degree of Doctor of Divinity (honoris causa) to Reverend Dr Stephen Haar.

The Doctor of Divinity is the oldest award of the University, created in 1910 and first awarded in 1913. It is the highest academic honour that the University bestows. The award is made in recognition of Stephen’s sustained and distinguished contribution to the Church and community in Australia and internationally over many years, through scholarship, educational innovation, and engagement with Church and inter-Church dialogue in myriad ways.

The Chancellor of the University, Dr Graeme L Blackman AO, will confer the award on Dr Haar at the University’s Adelaide graduation ceremony, which is to be held in the Immanuel College Chapel, Novar Gardens on Friday 2 December at 7.30 pm. All are welcome to attend this celebration.
