Global Citizenship

“Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Trinity Hall’s mission and core values exemplify young women interested in pursuing higher education, deepening their knowledge, and investigating the world. Our students are encouraged to take risks, pursue personal passions, network globally, and grow as learners and valued individuals. Thus, our global citizenship program charges our students to:
  • lead by engaging, connecting and taking action;
  • develop respect and empathy by seeking greater understanding and appreciation;
  • persevere by adapting;
  • and discover self-awareness of identity through faith.

Students engage in all-school discussions highlighting relevant literature and key historical and current events to develop the understanding, empathy, values, behaviors and skills required to appreciate multiple perspectives and thrive in an increasingly interconnected world. They connect with strategic partners to collaborate with other schools and communities, research issues, share ideas and develop solutions to specific local or global problems. Students are also encouraged to participate in school-sponsored international adventures -- most recently to Costa Rica, Paris, Barcelona and Montreal.
What is Global Competence? 
"Global competence is the capacity to examine local, global and intercultural issues, to understand and appreciate the perspectives and world views of others, to engage in open, appropriate and effective interactions with people from different cultures, and to act for collective well-being and sustainable development."
