Trinity Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

To ensure the health and safety of our community, Trinity continues to closely monitor the outbreak of coronavirus/COVID-19. We will provide timely and useful information as it becomes available.

A Message from President Nicholas Perrin, May 6, 2020

Dear Trinity Community,

Congratulations to all of you for your perseverance and flexibility, as we complete a most unusual exam week and academic year!  I pray that you felt the Lord’s blessing and found joy in the midst of the trials over the last few months. I give thanks for your remarkable dedication and the Lord’s sustaining grace through this difficult time.

COVID-19 has demanded that all colleges and universities challenge their educational and business models, and Trinity is no different.  As we conclude the two-week strategic planning process and Call to Prayer, I thank you for your active participation! We have clearly felt the Lord’s leading, but realize that he doesn’t always provide all the details at once. I am excited to share the journey we have undertaken—becoming a university living in the realities of a world in exile. Please watch the video update below to learn more about what this reality means for Trinity.

Of course, there remains further conversations and planning to be done. Please continue to pray for wisdom, courage, and humility as we seek the Lord! Watch for regular video updates, which will be emailed to you throughout the summer. Also, the online FAQ’s have been recently updated in response to questions I am receiving from students and the Trinity Community.

May you have a blessed summer. We look forward to seeing you on campus in the fall!

In Christ,
