Over a century ago, Trinity College was founded by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur as the nation’s first Catholic liberal arts college for women. Beginning with the first graduating class of 1904, the mission of Trinity has been realized in the lives of her graduates.
Points of pride
Trinity’s commitment to liberal learning derives its ultimate meaning from the core identity of Trinity as a Catholic college. Beyond spiritual growth realized through theological studies and liturgies, the Trinity community also lives its faith through active service to people in need in Washington and around the country. Trinity’s commitment to faith and liberal learning is also realized in the Honor System that governs all aspects of academic and co-curricular life on campus.
