General Information About Trinity International University
Trinity College Mission Statement Trinity College prepares students to engage and influence their local and global communities through holistic Christ-centered liberal arts education. To accomplish this mission, Trinity College, as an academic community, commits itself to distinctive objectives: 1. A Reasoned Belief in the Christ-Centered Focus of Truth A belief that: * Affirms a personal and loving God as source and sustainer of all created beings and values. * Proclaims Jesus Christ as liberator and Lord of individual and corporate living. * Appropriates Holy Scripture as God’s direct and definitive self-disclosure. * Discovers God’s continual self-revealing activity in every aspect of nature, life, and knowledge. * Provides illumination and significance to the quest for understanding in all its dimensions. * Engages in open-minded inquiry as an appropriate response of love to God. 2. A Liberal Arts Approach to Learning An approach that: * Gives systematic exposure to the heritage of human experience. * Sharpens the ability to form significant questions and sound judgments. * Teaches consistency and comprehensiveness in thought and clarity, and coherence in expression. * Cultivates appreciation for the beautiful, the imaginative, the delightful and empathy for the unlovely, the commonplace, and the tragic. * Develops the human capacity to create, which reflects the creative power of God. 3. A Sustained Interest in Every Participant An interest that: * Respects the dignity of each person as a unique image-bearer of God. * Takes seriously the particular concerns of current and former students, faculty and staff, administrators and trustees, and those in its various constituencies. * Supports each member in the integration of all the facets of his or her personal growth. 4. A Purposeful Involvement in Contemporary Society An involvement that: * Subjects pervasive human problems to penetrating critical analysis. * Confronts deterioration and corruption in institutions as well as individuals. * Translates Christian compassion into redemptive social action, with special sensitivity to global injustice and ecological stewardship. * Points men and women, individually and collectively, to their ultimate need for God’s forgiving healing and grace. 5. A Serious Attempt to Encourage Career Potential An attempt that: * Applies formal instruction to issues of current importance. * Offers guidance in the development of life-planning skills. * Emphasizes a range of vocational possibilities more than specific occupational training. * Promotes effective participation in the body of Christ. 6. A Creative Balancing of Tensions Inherent in the Educational Process A balance that: * Sets and strives for high ideals, but confesses and struggles with flaws and limitations. * Allows for maximum realization of freedom and order, spontaneity and continuity. * Recognizes the necessary interdependence of reason and faith, reflective thinking and responsible acting. * Treats with tolerance and fairness ideas that are novel, traditional, simple, or complex. * Requires equally of all who teach and learn both careful research and effective communication. * Transmits Christian values while sustaining the exercise of individual moral decision. * Discriminates between need and excess in the use of natural and economic resources. * Distinguishes good from evil, but refrains from separating God’s universe into “sacred” and "secular” compartments.
