Frequently Asked Questions | Fast Facts About Trinity

Founded in 1897 by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur as one of the first Catholic colleges for women in the United States, in response to the exclusion of women from the then-new Catholic University at the end of the 19th Century, Trinity has remained faithful to its founding vision as an institution with a primary mission to ensure access to a high quality education for women who might otherwise be excluded.  Infused with the commitment to action for social justice that remains a central force in the global mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame, Trinity in 2014 welcomes students of all faith and backgrounds who are eager to learn here in order to use the power of their education to be of service to their families and communities.
