Trinity Western University Expands The Way Students Will Be Able To Access Education

Few events have called everyone to adapt to the new realities so swiftly as the COVID-19 pandemic. In the face of the global health crisis and significant travel restrictions, TWU is building upon its existing expertise in multi-access education. Our goal is to provide access to a Trinity Western University education for all who desire to study in this remarkable global Christian University.

Instead of waiting for borders to re-open and travel restrictions to lift, we are expanding our face-to-face campus learning with a bold, multi-access delivery model. Our innovative multi-access approach will allow a seamless transition to on-campus learning for those who are able to travel, while providing all students greater flexibility in their learning.

Our ultimate aim continues to be a full return to campus as soon as it is safe for students to do so. We place a high value upon health and safety and are committed to doing all that we can to ensure the well-being of our entire community. We do not want the inability to study on campus this fall to mean an individual cannot access a Trinity Western University education. We are committed to providing education without borders by offering a variety of ways for students to begin their studies for the upcoming academic year.

At Trinity Western University, transformative education can happen regardless of borders, time zones, or location. Our multi-access platform allows students the flexibility of learning face-to-face, online or a combination of the two, depending on the subject matter and individual circumstance of each student. This coming semester will be different for everyone and we are committed to supporting students well regardless of their physical or geographical setting. Our multi-access approach will allow students to move dynamically between educational modes as we progress towards fully returning to a safe on-campus learning environment.

Whole-person education is a hallmark of the Trinity Western University experience. We have designed multi-access with this in mind: key areas of the university that contribute to the unique TWU student experience, including Student Life, Resident Life, Chapel and the Learning Commons, are adapting the way they care for and support the academic, social, and spiritual development of students to make the complete TWU experience available to all students.

We are hard at work preparing safe, secure, and spiritually vital pathways for students to journey back to Trinity Western University this fall. As we work with local and provincial health authorities, prayerfully follow their guidance, and further build out our robust, transformative, and effective multi-access education platform, we want to invite you to share in this experience via our social media and news channel.

We would love to connect with you over the summer and we invite you to join with us in prayer as we seek to navigate this season well.
