Commitment to Diversity
Trine University remains committed to cultivating diversity, inclusion and fairness. As a leading private institution of higher education, Trine fosters a culture of understanding, growth and inquiry; values the diverse qualities of its students, faculty and staff; promotes an inclusive environment free of discrimination and intolerance; and welcomes everyone.
Trine will not allow discrimination and will continue to grant admission and provide educational opportunities without regard to race, age, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, religion or veteran status. The culture of Trine University dictates that these same standards of acceptance apply to all faculty, staff, alumni and community members.
Trine Together is a commitment from members throughout the Trine University family – representing all races and creeds – that forms an inclusive community working together for a brighter tomorrow. This effort, founded on justice and fairness for all, is a promise to engage in meaningful conversations and connections by hearing each other, seeing each other, and caring for each other. And, by valuing all of our citizens equally and building on the strengths that exist in every person, we not only enhance the Trine culture, we work together to build a better Trine community and a more humane world.
Look out for events through our Office of Student Success and Engagement

Multicultural Student Organization
The purpose of the Multicultural Student Organization is to make sure that all members excel socially and academically throughout our communities. We dedicate ourselves to the development, enrichment, and appreciation of all cultures that are represented.
The Multicultural Student Organization is dedicated to promoting a healthy and enjoyable social and academic atmosphere for multicultural students at Trine University. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we believe “that people of all races, creeds, and nationalities can live together in a beloved community and that a person should be judged by the contents of their character and not by the color of their skin.” By following in his footsteps we challenge oppression and structural and procedural inequalities that exist in society. Ultimately, the organization strives to develop leadership skills in multicultural students through participation in various campus activities and civic projects.
The Multicultural Student Organization hosts activities throughout the year, including workshops, the Amish Dinner & Cultural Exchange, Hispanic Heritage Month, Diversity Sunday and the Dr. Martin Luther King Celebration.
Saudi Students Association
The Saudi Students Association (SSA) at Trine University reflects cultural, scientific and historical aspects of Saudi Arabia. The SSA strives to co-operate and build relationships with the academic and student community, as well as helping new Saudi and international overcome difficulties. The SSA stands with the local community centers and organizations in order to send a positive image about Saudi students.
