Trevecca Nazarene University believes in the holistic development of students. Success is not determined solely on the academic merits of a student. Success is also measured through the spiritual, physical, and emotional maturation and development of the student. The desire is to graduate students that are successful in life in addition to their academic discipline. Developing the leadership potential in students is a key factor in this. There is a specific focus on leadership and service as indicated through the Trevecca Nazarene University mission statement. These qualities are evident from the moment a student sets foot on campus. All freshmen students are required to take the freshman seminar course with the intent of effectively transitioning them into the Trevecca culture. There are four foundational pieces to this assimilation:
- Forming a connection
- Developing self-awareness
- Evaluating God’s calling (vocation)
- Understanding leadership and service
Trevecca Freshmen also participate in The College Student Inventory, Strengths Quest and Myers-Briggs Type indicator assessments, intentional mentoring with faculty/staff and upper-class students, class assignments on calling and vocation, and so much more - all of which are catalysts for the growth of each individual student.
