  • History & Memorable Moments

Trinity College of Quezon City was launched through the bequeathal of the Procter and Gamble stock and the family of Bishop Paul Matthews. Rt. Rev. Lyman C. Ogilby, then Bishop of the Philippine Episcopal Church, initiated the move to set up a Christian college of high standards. The seed money was used to purchase the former Capitol City College on 226 E. Rodriguez Sr., Blvd., Quezon City, the school's current location. [1]

At the start of the school year 1963-64, there were 1,700 students enrolled in the College. The College offered Basic Education and three collegiate courses, such as Liberal Arts, Commerce, and Teacher Education. That same year, the first Board of Trustees, headed by Rev. Wayland S. Mandell, was convened, and the First College President, Dr. Arthur L. Carson, was installed. By 1965, the Joint Council of the Church led by Bishop Ogilby of the Philippine Episcopal Church and Bishop Isabelo de los Reyes of Iglesia Filipina Independiente approved the transfer of the collegiate courses to the College’s present location, the Cathedral Heights compound. The Arts and Science Building was the sole structure for all the colleges, until St. Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing merged with TCQC to form a five-year collegiate course in nursing. St. Luke’s Nurse’s Home became part of the college’s expansion, where it provided space for teaching. A medical technology course was later affiliated with Trinity College, and the Graduate School followed in 1985. [1]

From a one-building structure, Trinity College spawned its properties with the coming of several infrastructures: Wayland Mandell Hall, which houses the Main Library (1982), Noble Gym (1973), Ann Keim Barsam Hall for the Colleges of Education and Business Administration (2003), Health Science Building (2004) for the College of Nursing and Medical Technology, Center for Community and Extension Services (1995), Human Kinetics swimming pool (2002), the Canteen (2003), and the Mary Niven Alston Hostel for the College of Hospitality and Tourism Management (2006). [1]

Many of Trinity's nursing graduates go on to pass the licensure exams in nursing, medical technology, and education. Recently, the College of Nursing placed 6th among the top performing schools in licensure, while the College of Medical Technology placed 5th. All the programs of the College were also accredited very satisfactory by accrediting agencies. The programs in the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Education, and Graduate Studies were given Level 3, 5 year accreditation by Association of Christian Schools, Colleges and Universities (ACSCU), while the Colleges of Nursing and Medical Technology received Level 2, 3 years from Philippine Association of Accredited Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU). [1]

The University is also home to some international programs, such as the International Partnership for Service-Learning and Japan Foundation's Japanology course. It is also a beneficiary of the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia (UBCHEA) and an active member of international organizations such as the Association of Christian Universities and Colleges in Asia (ACUCA), Federation of Asia-Pacific Colleges, and Colleges and Universities of Anglican Communion (CUAC).

  • Naming

In 1963, the Capitol City College was renamed, Trinity College of Quezon City. It was named after Trinity College of Hartford, Connecticut, USA whose president then was Bishop Ogilby’s father. It was foreseen as a challenge to the institution to nurture men and women in the truth espoused by the “ Holy Trinity, the Triune of God, the author of all truth and power for all good.” Today, the College assumes the name Trinity University of Asia, the only Episcopalian university located in Asia.
