Acadia Divinity College (ADC) is a
seminarylocated on the 250 acre (1 km²) campus of Acadia Universityin Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley.
The ADC shares facilities with Acadia University; the college's library is part of the university's 800,000 volume
Vaughan Memorial Librarycollection. Also hosted at Acadia University are the Esther Clark Wright Archives, which includes an extensive collection of material relating to the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches.
Acadia Divinity College operates as the Faculty of Theology at
Acadia University. It was established in 1968 after the Board of Governors of Acadia University voted to reduce the role of the Convention of Atlantic Baptist Churches in the governance of the university, thus effectively making Acadia a secular school. The establishment of Acadia Divinity College was one of the concessions the Board of Governors made to the Convention.
