Draft of Timeline Marking History of Diversity at Trinity to Debut in the Cave February 27

Campaign for Community Seeking Feedback on Sample Panels, Models, and Full Text

​Hartford, Connecticut, February 22, 2018—A draft of a new large-scale timeline that tells the story of diversity at Trinity College will debut in the Cave during Common Hour on Tuesday, February 27. Campaign for Community student leaders have drafted this timeline, which marks moments along Trinity’s history that have led the college to become a more inclusive institution. The timeline will eventually be installed on the walls of the Cave in the lower level of Mather Hall.

Several actual-size panels of the timeline will be on display starting February 27, along with smaller-scale models of the complete timeline. In addition, the text of all of the timeline entries will be available to read in a notebook at the event, which starts at 12:15 p.m. The entire campus community is invited to engage with the draft by sharing feedback and suggestions in the notebook or with sticky notes affixed to the panels and models.

The draft will remain on display in the Cave for a number of days after the Common Hour event. In addition, an electronic version of the timeline draft is available online here so that alumni and others off campus can offer their feedback as well. Additional ideas also may be shared via email to campaign.community@trincoll.edu.

Launched by President Joanne Berger-Sweeney in the spring of 2015, the Campaign for Community is a student-led initiative to build “the community we wish to be”: one characterized by respect, inclusion, and collaborative partnership.
