Responsibilities of Membership

From time to time TWU has garnered publicity due to the University's policy known as the "Responsibilities of Membership." As a private university, Trinity has made the decision to enact certain “responsibilities" which the University believes accompanies an atmosphere more conducive to learning and community. The University makes it clear that these responsibilities are not meant to be reflections of biblical principles, or moral standards of any sort, but particular lifestyle choices made in the interest of the perceived benefits which campus-wide acceptance would promote: A private university is a university that is run without the control of any government entity. ...


"This application of the Responsibilities of Membership is not offered as a legalistic definition of right and wrong. Certain expectations may not be commanded by Scripture, but nonetheless, they are desirable and essential if all members of the community are to achieve their personal goals."[7]


Regarding harassment, the University insists that all students, staff, and faculty "follow biblical principles of lifestyle and conduct and refrain from biblically prohibited practices. The Responsibilities of Membership statement expresses some of the lifestyle and conduct expectations which contribute to...providing a community in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity."[8] Notably more restrictive than standards imposed by Canadian law and public universities, members of the TWU community are restricted from:[8]

TWU vs. BC College of Teachers

In 1995, TWU launched a teaching certification program, but the British Columbia College of Teachers denied accreditation of TWU's program, arguing that the agreement students must sign is discriminatory and that those graduating from Trinity Western's program will discriminate against gay students. The lower courts in British Columbia and, later, the Supreme Court of Canada, ruled in favour of Trinity Western University, stating that there was no basis for the BCCT's decision, and, moreover, that "the concern that graduates of TWU will act in a detrimental fashion in the classroom is not supported by any evidence." Trinity Western University v. ...


The final analysis of the case, as reported by the Factum of the Intervener, the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, was that "In the circumstances of this case the Council of the B.C. College of Teachers failed to conduct such an enquiry and erroneously concluded that equality of rights on the basis of sexual orientation trump freedom of religion and association. They do not."
