The Cooper Center: For Employers

Employer Resources

At Trinity, we recognize that the fast-paced, global, and interconnected economy requires that students be equipped with skills that are broadly applicable across many occupations.  Trinity’s curriculum and training provides students with multiple opportunities to practice and develop these vital skills, while discovering their authentic selves. However, we also see God’s calling as extending beyond just a career. God calls His people in service to church, family, neighborhood, civic, and even global communities. A Trinity education prepares students for meaningful participation in all areas these of life and service.  This makes Trinity students excellent hires, and we encourage employers to get to know our students better through campus visits and employment opportunities.
