Connecting with a disciple making, personally challenging, academic community significantly enhances a student's education. Research indicates that students who invest in the campus community have greater social confidence, better connection with faculty and staff, higher persistence in accomplishing educational goals, increased grade point averages and fonder reflections of their university experience. Community Life's goal is to develop environments and opportunities where students can find belonging, have influence, develop relationships and serve one another. Through community, students learn more about themselves, their relationship to God and others and their purpose in life.
In conjunction with other departments of Student Life, Community Life staff equip and develop over 100 student leaders to pilot many commuter, resident and international student programs. Trinity Western has a history of developing students through experiential learning opportunities, many of them being outside of the classroom.
For information regarding community policies and responsibilities, please refer to the Trinity Western University Student Handbook.
