Faculty. We have a faculty of 5 full-time professors, a Senior Lecturer and Lecturer in Biblical Studies, and a Lecturer in Historical Theology plus several part-time lecturers and staff, offering a wide range of specialist expertise. Both Assistant Directors in the Institute of Theology and Subject Board chairmen are members of the Union College faculty.
