Trinity Welcomes Diversity Scholar Candidates to Campus


Diversity Scholars Group PhotoOn Feb. 25-26, Trinity hosted 17 Diversity Scholar candidates. Over the course of two days, the candidates took part in interviews, attended classes, went to student-led praise and worship, and learned about life at Trinity and the opportunities available beyond campus.

Trinity awards multiple Diversity Scholarships to first-time freshmen students from under-represented populations who have demonstrated academic excellence, leadership, Christian commitment, and involvement in promoting diversity in high school, church, or community programs.

Because Trinity’s mission recognizes no racial or cultural boundaries, we consciously seek to develop a multiracial, multinational, and multidenominational community. We affirm our commitment to work toward greater diversity not only in regard to our racial, ethnic, and cultural demographics but also in regard to acceptance, appreciation, honor, and equality within our campus climate.
