TWU drops community covenant that bans sex outside of heterosexual marriage

August 16, 2018

Trinity Western University has announced that students will no longer have to adhere to a “community covenant” that forbids any sexual relationship outside of heterosexual marriage, reports CBC. TWU President Bob Kuhn stated that the change was not connected to the recent Supreme Court ruling regarding TWU’s proposed law school, adding that TWU “will remain a Biblically-based, mission-focused, academically excellent university, fully committed to our foundational evangelical Christian principles.” Kuhn also noted that no decision has been made as to whether TWU will reapply for law school accreditation. CBC | Globe and Mail | Montreal Gazette
