Student Involvement

Student involvement is an integral part of the Trinity College experience. The Office of Student Activities, Involvement & Leadership (S.A.I.L.) has oversight of more than 140 student-run organizations on campus; coordinates large-scale campus events such as First Year Orientation, the Fall & Spring Involvement Fairs, and Senior Events; coordinates the creation of the Ivy Yearbook; employs over 100 student workers; and provides a variety of leadership development programs and experiences for students. 

In addition, the office provides oversight and coordination for two facilities that serve the Trinity community—Mather Hall and Vernon Social.

In support of the College's working goals and objectives, the S.A.I.L. Office will work to: Strengthen the Campus Culture through collaborative programming efforts, welcoming and friendly community initiatives, and the development of a leadership/mentoring structure; Ensure Academic Excellence through continued collaborations with faculty and academic-centered programming; Reach Financial Equilibrium through a structured and thoughtful budgeting process, as well as creating sustainable programming that will not impact our department budget; and Share Our Successes through assessment of our programs and services, strengthening our community engagement and outrach, engagement alumni and community members in current programs, and development of a leadership program that highlights the importance of community values.​
