Honoring our Similarities and Differences
The Trinity community is a diverse and inclusive one, where the dignity of every person is respected.
We believe diversity embraces both our visible and invisible differences including, but not limited to, race, gender, culture, religion, socioeconomic status, perspectives, physical ability, education, and family composition.
We believe a diverse and inclusive community is essential to a well-rounded education that promotes intellectual curiosity, academic excellence, and moral growth. For our children to be successful and productive citizens in our ever-changing world, they must learn to explore, understand, and value others in a safe, nurturing, and diverse environment. With this foundation, our students are prepared to think critically, collaborate effectively, and lead as they navigate the world beyond Trinity.
Episcopal tradition values learning through open and rigorous intellectual inquiry by:
- Seeking wisdom from many different places and many voices,
- Welcoming a community of many faiths and experiences to learn from each other and have a deeper understanding of our own beliefs, and
- Celebrating and rejoicing in the richness and understanding that diversity brings.
Trinity intentionally honors its commitment to diversity and inclusion through institutional policies, a curriculum that integrates multiculturalism, ideals of equity and justice, professional development for faculty and staff, programs, community service, and chapel.
