Statement of Mission

Trinity is a comprehensive institution offering a broad range of educational programs that prepare students across the lifespan for the intellectual, ethical and spiritual dimensions of contemporary work, civic and family life. Trinity’s core mission values and characteristics emphasize:

Commitment to the Education of Women in a particular way through the design and pedagogy of the historic undergraduate women’s college, and by advancing principles of equity, justice and honor in the education of women and men in all other programs.

Foundation for Learning in the Liberal Arts through the curriculum design in all undergraduate degree programs and through emphasis on the knowledge, skills and values of liberal learning in all graduate and professional programs.

Integration of Liberal Learning with Professional Preparation through applied and experiential learning opportunities in all programs.

Grounding in the mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and the Catholic tradition, welcoming persons of all faiths, in order to achieve the larger purposes of learning in the human search for meaning and fulfillment.

Dedicated to Women and Adult Learners

In the 1980s, Trinity launched the innovative Weekend College program, aimed at working women to earn their college degrees, with classes on Friday evenings and Saturdays. Trinity has expanded its programs for adults substantially with classes offered every weekday evening and Saturdays; the Weekend College expanded and transformed into what is today Trinity’s School of Professional Studies, open to women and men.

Trinity continues its historic women’s college, now known as the College of Arts and Sciences, enrolling 1,000 young women who hail largely from the District of Columbia and the Washington region.

Trinity became Trinity Washington University in 2004, and today Trinity enrolls more than 2,000 students in five academic schools:

A Brief History

Founded in 1897 as Trinity College in Washington, D.C. by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, Trinity was the nation’s first Catholic liberal arts college for women. Trinity opened its doors to its first students in 1900 – the Red Class of 1904. Trinity’s first building, Main Hall, was built in stages, with the cornerstone set in 1899, the south wing open to students in 1900 and the building completed with the addition of the north wing in 1909 – when electricity was installed. In the early years, Main Hall included all of the classrooms, student rooms, dining hall, library, chapel and convent for the Sisters of Notre Dame.
