The St Paul’s College Council is delighted to announce the appointment of the Rev Dr Ed Loane as the 12th Warden of St Paul’s College.
Following an extensive and thorough search, which yielded many high quality applications, we have found the right candidate to lead this exciting next chapter at St Paul’s.
Dr Loane was raised in Wollongong and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Sydney, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science. He went on to complete his graduate studies at Moore College, followed by a PhD at Cambridge University.
As an Old Pauline, he has a firm commitment to collegiate education, and was appointed as a Council Member in May 2017. Since his election to Council, he has been instrumental in governance matters such as our new Act, and in leading the cultural renewal process at St Paul’s, taking the initiative in the implementation of recommendations of the Broderick Review.
The Council believes Dr Loane brings to us a blend of humility, inquisitiveness, academic excellence, committed Anglican faith, and a deep love for the College.
“As someone who has benefitted greatly from collegiate communities throughout my life, including my time at St Paul’s, I am excited to be able to serve the College as its twelfth Warden” said Dr Loane. “I look forward to seeing the students of the College pursue excellence in all they attempt and grow in character as they share their lives together.”
Dr Loane has a deep passion for history and academia, and enjoys spending time with his family, reading and following live sports. He will commence in early 2020 and will move into residence with his wife Jocelyn and his five children.
