Trevecca Nazarene University

Trevecca Nazarene University is a fully accredited comprehensive institution of higher education located in Nashville, Tennessee. The University offers fifty-three baccalaureate and four associate degree majors through ten academic departments and four schools. Master's degrees are awarded in religion, education, management, physician assistant, library and information science, organizational leadership, and counseling psychology. Doctorates are awarded in education and clinical counseling. While Trevecca reaffirms its primary goal of educating recent high school graduates, it has also recognized and assumed responsibility for providing innovative undergraduate and graduate programs for adults.

Trevecca's distinctiveness is that of being a holiness institution of higher education which presents a Christian interpretation of truth. While the nature of the University has changed some over the years, its mission to provide quality Christian-centered education, with an emphasis on the integration of faith and learning, has been maintained. The name "university" is especially appropriate for any institution that clearly focuses on this mission.

There are several elements that are key to Trevecca's character:

First, teaching is the University's primary responsibility. While some faculty are increasingly engaged in research, writing, and service projects, their greatest task is to teach.

Second, the focus is on a strong liberal arts preparation and a viable general education program. Today, most graduate schools and employers are calling for a more general and liberally educated graduate. Trevecca is well-suited for such requests because it has historically included the liberal arts as part of its mission.

Third, the main concern is in helping the individual student. Trevecca is a Christian community.

Fourth, spiritual life development remains at the core of its focus. Chapel attendance, required religion courses, revivals, and the spiritual commitment of the faculty and student body are a vital part of University life.

We welcome and encourage you to be a part of Trevecca Nazarene University.

Mission

Trevecca Nazarene University is a Christian community providing education for leadership and service.

Vision

In founding Trevecca in 1901, J. O. McClurkan exhibited an entrepreneurial spirit aimed at meeting the deepest needs of the people of Nashville. His death was front page news. He was known for his selfless service. The genius of his work was the marriage of a holy passion to serve and practical expertise. His legacy is a school founded to shape Godly servants, true saints. Today, we are challenged to build a vision for the next chapter.

As this journey begins, we must keep our eyes on why we exist: to be a Christian community providing high quality education for leadership and service. We live in a world of human need, a world that needs us to stay focused on accomplishing our mission. Centuries of education, technology, and religion have not alleviated human need. At times, they have only deepened the pain of our world. As a result, pessimism has become the ruling attitude of our day. The lack of genuinely transforming power has left us with sound bytes, veneer promises, and evaporating idols. The reason we exist is to make a difference in the world through people who participate in the Trevecca experience.

Two things are needed to make the difference–

 

People who have a God-given, holy passion to serve

 

and

 

 

People whose practical expertise is transforming.

The marriage of holy passion and practical expertise is a rare commodity. We believe that holy passion is the result of a transforming encounter with God. Such holiness cannot be educated into people, but is the gift of God available to all who encounter the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. Without this, service to our fellow human tends to tire or turn selfish.

At the same time, a holy passion to serve without practical expertise may harm the very person we intend to help. God has given us the capacity for great service through honing our skills to the highest level of expertise.

We are now writing the next chapter in this grand story. Ten years from now,

Should we fail, the Church of the Nazarene will flounder in its mission; the city of Nashville will be less just, less peaceful, less neighborly; and a generation of students will be deprived of the most transforming experience of their life. Those who have gone before us insist that we not let McClurkan's dream die. And we will not.

Purpose

Trevecca Nazarene University, founded in 1901 by J.O. McClurkan, is a private, accredited, comprehensive institution of higher learning that exists to meet the higher educational needs of the Church of the Nazarene by providing educational services to qualified individuals who desire a university education in a Christian environment and from a Christian understanding. Its academic programs are based on Christian values that promote scholarship, critical thinking, and meaningful worship for students in preparation for lives of leadership and service to the church, the community, and the world at large.

As the official university for the Church of the Nazarene in the southeastern United States, Trevecca is guided by the Articles of Faith and the Covenant of Christian Conduct of the denomination. It emphasizes the authority of the Bible, time-honored tradition, reasoned thought, and authentic experience of Christian holiness as interpreted by the Wesleyan doctrine and worldview. The university welcomes students of any religious affiliation who subscribe to its ideals and standards.

Trevecca intends that its graduates be socially-conscious, globally-aware, and actively-engaged individuals who are developing holistically in the cognitive, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual areas of being. The desire is that each student will develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. They are to be persons of strong Christian character able to make ethical decisions based on biblical principles and reflective thought. Their characteristics should include competence, responsibility, compassion, and the ability to integrate Christian faith and learning in practice.

The university provides a variety of nontraditional and continuing education professional programs at the undergraduate, master's, and doctoral levels. Traditional undergraduate curricular programs focus on the liberal arts and sciences as reflected in the core curriculum and emphasize a number of professional content areas. While the primary focus of Trevecca faculty is to teach, faculty members are encouraged as reflective practitioners to conduct action research that contributes to the practical wisdom of applied knowledge and enhances the learning experience. All programs strive to prepare students for positions of leadership and service in their chosen careers by clarifying their life calling, developing their intellectual abilities, and engaging them in research, service learning, internships, and/or other opportunities that will allow them to demonstrate practical application of their knowledge and skills.

To achieve its purpose, Trevecca employs faculty, administrators, and staff who model the ideals of the university and, as mentors, seek to foster a supportive and challenging environment in which every student can realize his or her full potential in Christ. Therefore, Trevecca seeks to employ Christians who are competent, professionally qualified, and fully committed to the university's mission and purpose.

History

Trevecca Nazarene University was founded in Nashville in 1901 by Rev. J. O. McClurkan as the Literary and Bible Training School for Christian Workers. In 1910 the curriculum was enlarged and the name changed to Trevecca College, a name taken from an institution started in Wales in 1768 during the Wesleyan Revival.

In 1914 the College was moved from downtown Nashville to a site on Gallatin Road in East Nashville and in 1935 was established at its present location on Murfreesboro Road in Southeast Nashville. Trevecca became an official college of the Church of the Nazarene in 1917 and graduated its first four-year class approved by the State of Tennessee in 1942. It was first accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 1969. The first master's degree was added in 1984. The first doctoral degree was added in 1998.

The University is governed by a board of trustees elected by the various districts of the Church of the Nazarene which comprise the Southeast Educational Region.

From the very beginning Trevecca has sought to provide Christian education for both ministers and laymen. Today its educational program is reflected in some seventy-five baccalaureate, associate, pre-professional, and graduate majors. Its service-oriented philosophy has resulted in worldwide alumni representation.

The motto of Trevecca is esse quam videri—"to be rather than to seem." Its colors are purple and white, and its athletic team name is "the Trojans." The Trevecca Alma Mater is the following:

On a hill stands old Trevecca

Lined against the sky.

Hallowed halls of faith and learning,

As the years go by.

We will honor and we'll love her,

We will stand for right.

Always carry high her banner,

Hail to the purple and the white.

Fellow students, let us honor her,

And be ever true.

Sons and daughters she'll be proud of—

Dear old T.N.U.

The first president of Trevecca was the Rev. J. O. McClurkan (1901-1914). He was followed by Dr. C. E. Hardy (1915-1919, 1920-1925, 1928-1937), Dr. S. S. White (1919-1920), Mr. John T. Benson (1925-1926), Dr. A .B. Mackey (1937-1963), Dr. William M. Greathouse (1963-1968), Dr. Mark Moore (1968-1979), Dr. Homer J. Adams (1979-1991), and Dr. Millard Reed (1991-2005). Dr. Dan L. Boone was elected Trevecca's eleventh president in 2005.

For the 75th Anniversary celebration of Trevecca in 1976, a history of the institution, authored by Dr. Mildred Bangs Wynkoop was published under the title The Trevecca Story. A Vine of God's Own Planting by Dr. John Chilton, emeritus professor of history, was published in 2001 as part of the Trevecca Centennial Series. This latest work focuses primarily on the events that shaped Trevecca from the years 1976 to 2001.

  7. That the Holy Spirit bears witness to the new birth and also to the entire sanctification of believers.

General Education Core Curriculum Outcomes and Objectives

Purpose of the Core Curriculum

The purpose of the general education core curriculum is to embody the Christian intellectual life thus helping to fulfill Institutional Educational Goals 1-8. Toward this end instruction is provided in the humanities/fine arts, social/behavioral sciences, natural sciences, religion/philosophy, and the critical reasoning skills essential to an educated Christian capable of leadership and service. All of this arises from the conviction that the liberal arts are best understood through a theological situation of life and learning. The basic assumptions of the general education program reflect the medieval insight that a mature faith seeks understanding. A graduate of the program will be exposed to the broad contours of human knowledge within the specific resources and perspectives offered by the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. The goal of the general education curriculum is to provide the occasion for the development of a truly Christian understanding in vital conversation with the liberal arts.

Organization of the Curriculum

The general education program is organized into four tiers, which together prepare the student for academic work toward a specific vocation. The Foundations Tier intends to provide the basic skills necessary for a university education and lifelong learning. The Human Sciences Tier seeks to introduce the student to the basic social structures necessary to a meaningful life. The Natural Sciences Tier intends to give the student an understanding of the scientific method, physical and biological sciences, and an appreciation of the environment. The central piece of the general education program is the Contexts Tier. This part of the program is a historically integrated sequence of courses embracing the basic content of a Christian liberal arts education. It is expected that students will take courses from the general education core over the entire four years.

General Education Outcomes

The purpose and organization of the general education curriculum is linked to the Institutional Educational Goals. Therefore, it emphasizes Christian character; disciplined reflection; literary, artistic, mathematical, and scientific contributions that have shaped civilization; appreciation for diversity; writing, speaking, and use of technology; critical skills essential to a lifetime of intellectual growth; and a holistic understanding of life. The learning outcomes of the general education curriculum seek to link the Institutional Educational Goals through an emphasis upon skills, content, and constructive/integrative domains of understanding. The curriculum embraces the conception that the four tiers (foundations, human sciences, natural sciences, and contexts) are best understood as involving skills, content, and constructive/integrative domains. While the general education curriculum is organized into tiers, the horizon that informs the core involves these outcomes which run throughout the tiers. In other words, an educated person will possess certain skills and content as a basis of embracing the world through a constructive and integrative theological vision of life and learning.

A. Skills

  1. Students will be able to research, compose, organize, and deliver a spoken message suitable to the topic, purpose, and audience.
  2. Students will demonstrate writing competency by exhibiting an awareness of subject, audience, and purpose, while accurately using grammar, punctuation, and logical organization.

B. Content

  1. Students will be able to articulate the fundamental themes of the Scripture as well as the intellectual tools for further study of the scripture.
  2. Students will be able to articulate the parameters of the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition and see its connections with intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and physical life.
  3. Students will be able to articulate the doctrinal and moral convictions of the Church of the Nazarene.
  4. Students will demonstrate an understanding of world religions and their relationship to Christianity.
  5. Students will be able to read a variety of fiction and non-fiction works, Western and non-Western, with comprehension as demonstrated by the ability to identify, organize, synthesize, and evaluate main ideas and elements.
  6. Students will demonstrate knowledge of the aesthetic aspects of Western and non-Western culture.
  7. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the scientific method and the parameters of scientific inquiry.
  8. Students will demonstrate the ability to understand and perform basic mathematical and statistical tasks to analyze and solve problems.
  9. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the patterns of human behavior, both past and present.

C. Constructive/Integrative

  1. Students will demonstrate an understanding and practice of various modes of intellectual thinking processes.
  2. Students will be able to define and apply Christian convictions to their own lives.
  3. Students will be able to integrate the basic liberal arts and academic major with the fundamental doctrinal/moral convictions of the Christian faith.
  4. Students will understand the relationship between personal well-being and the capacity to engage others.
  5. Students will demonstrate an appreciation of the stewardship of resources, as it applies to personal life and in society as a whole, from a Christian perspective.
  6. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the importance of Christian leadership and service in a global community.
  7. Students will demonstrate an understanding of cultural diversity, both locally and globally.

Lectureships

SLONECKER BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL LECTURES William T. Slonecker, M.D., has provided an endowment for annual lectures and/or seminars in business, science, and the professions. The first lectureship was presented during the 1972-73 school year.

Newell, who for more than 40 years faithfully used her talents as church pianist. The purpose of this annual lecture is to preserve the essence of the hymnody of the Church of the Nazarene so that those studying for ministry can learn to assist worshipers in completing the cycle of self-expression in worship, adoration, confession, love, joy, peace and commitment through singing of hymns.

H. RAY DUNNING LECTURE SERIES ON THEOLOGY AND THE BIBLE Established in 1995 by colleagues, former students, and friends of H. Ray Dunning in honor of his life, ministry and career, the lecture series exists for the purpose of bringing to Trevecca Nazarene University outstanding scholars in the fields of theology and Bible to contribute to biblically and theologically informed dialogue among the students and faculty of the University.

"Keeping Trevecca alive in the hearts and minds of its alumni" is a primary goal of Trevecca's Alumni Association. With graduates and former students located throughout the world, the association seeks to be the communication link between the University and its alumni.

Through the Office of Alumni Relations various activities are conducted to encourage strong alumni support. These activities include homecoming weekend, commencement functions, special interest alumni group meetings, and alumni fund raising activities.

The Treveccan, issued quarterly, is the official magazine of the University and serves as the major information channel for alumni and friends. It contains a section entitled "AlumNews" which highlights alumni activities and achievements.
