After 150 years as an Unincorporated Institution of the Uniting Church of Australia, the incorporation of Wesley College as a new legal entity, Wesley College Melbourne, became effective on 1 September 2016.

The College worked closely and jointly with the Uniting Church in Australia (Victoria & Tasmania) in establishing and implementing contemporary governance arrangements to support the College as it moved towards legal independence from the Church. This reflects our shared vision and purpose and enduring relationship with the Uniting Church in Australia.

In addition to a revised constitution, approved at a Special General Meeting of Wesley College Melbourne on 19 November 2015, the transfer of land trusteeship from the Uniting Church in Australia Property Trust (Victoria & Tasmania) to Wesley College Melbourne was successfully completed. This transfer was a significant historical step for both the College and the Church.
