We were created to work and do good works according to the gifts and opportunities God give us.  This is a life calling.

We seem called, therefore, to empower people to Discern, Develop, and Deploy their Gifts and Calling.


We are looking for people who want to help us complement Trinity’s academic and co-curricular programs (such as Business, Chicago Semester, Nursing, Student Life) and empower students through experiential learning and mentoring.


The Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Empowerment is developing a ladder for students toward fulfilling, transforming work — good work according to the gifts and opportunities God gives them.  The steps in this ladder include:

  • Interdisciplinary Initiatives; for example:
    • Community Heath
    • Fundraising
    • Story Writing
  • Student Clubs and their Leaders; for example:
    • E-Club (Entrepreneurship Club)
    • NSO (Nursing Student Organization
    • Honors
  • START Scholars:
    • Consultants
      • Social Media
      • Marketing
    • Interns
    • Entrepreneurs
