Trinity University Keeping “Year of Our Lord” in Its Diplomas

From yesterday’s resolution by the Board of Trustees:

The Board of Trustees affirms that it is appropriate, given this institution’s heritage and culture, that the words “in the year of our Lord” remain on diplomas conferred by this Board. Trinity University calls upon the larger community to respect, honor, and embrace all members of the Trinity family. Trinity seeks to instill in its students the ideals of rigorous pursuit of truth, freedom of thought and investigation, and respect for differing opinions, including differences in religious beliefs and practices. Furthermore, we affirm the University’s intrinsic mission as a liberal arts and sciences institution, where future leaders are prepared for life in a global society and where they are informed and fortified by diversity.
