Living-Learning Community


Living and learning at Trinity is not just a program it is a lifestyle.

Trinity's Living-Learning Community model integrates faith, learning, and service not only throughout the curriculum, but also throughout the campus, and out into our communities. This approach to learning assumes that every square foot of the campus is a learning laboratory – including classrooms, faculty and staff offices, common areas, and student apartments.

Trinity’s location in the greater Seattle area provides a perfect opportunity to take college learning off-campus, to include the unique urban context, outdoor environmental learning opportunities, and recreation. Downtown Everett offers a rich context in which service learning can take place and the community and its residents become co-learners and co-teachers in the educational process.

Examples of our Living-Learning Community:

Students in the Diversity in Early Learning course have been visiting Seattle-area early learning centers to study services available to special needs children and how centers address cultural differences.

Students manage the college’s bookstore, working closely Business department faculty to apply their learning in accounting, marketing, and management.

Chapel leadership becomes a course that prepares students to become future leaders in community worship settings.
