Lifelong Engagement with the Liberal Arts

​At Trinity, we believe in the transformative power of lifelong engagement with the liberal arts.

Experiencing the value of a liberal arts education doesn’t have to be limited to the four​-year college experience, the regular academic calend​ar, or the traditional classroom​​​.  In today’s world, the capacity and agility to learn continuously and apply ​​knowledge in new ways is essential.  Lifelong learning is at the core of professional accomplishment, personal satisfaction, economic innovation and social sustainability.

Consistent​ with our mission as a liberal arts college in a city, we combine a passion for lifelong learning with the best of a liberal arts experience:  highly engaged form​s of learning, connections to a vibrant community of learners and alumni, and personalized support so that each student c​an achieve her potential and be inspired to make a difference. 

This commitment extends to local partnerships, including  the Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy, a pre-college experience for Hartford students, and Trinfo.Cafe​, a community space forging local connections through information literacy and technology

Our flexible suite of academic  offerings, showcasing lifelong engagement with the liberal arts, is open to  motivated learners of all ages:
