Barbara Henriques
Coordinator for School Partnerships and Visiting Assistant Professor of Educational Studies

At some point during her career as an elementary school science teacher, Barbara Henriques came to the conclusion that she would have a much greater impact on the lives of students if she studied the most effective ways for schools to operate and for teachers to teach. Once she made up her mind to do just that, she began a journey that has taken her from that classroom in Holyoke, Massachusetts, to Yale Divinity School, to Bank Street College of Education in New York City, back to Massachusetts to complete advanced studies at UMass, to Skidmore College, across the globe to Lithuania, and, finally, to Trinity College—where she arrived in 2000. ... read more



Scott Reynolds

Secretary of the College

“My first clue that Thomas Friedman’s The World is Flat was a book to take seriously was the receipt of multiple copies for my birthday this summer. I now have no copies, as I found the book so on-the-mark that I have given all mine away as well as urging many others to read it. In short, Friedman describes how the Internet, collaborative horizontal business practices, and the entry of Russia, India, and China into the mix have converged to remove barriers to business activity. Those who read his column regularly won’t be surprised to find him critical of U.S. public policy and thus our future as a country in this new, flat world. Those who read his column will also find the clarity and simplicity he brings to complex issues.”

The College began its first academic year on September 23, 1824, with a total student body of 9. By comparison, the Class of 2009 arrived with 575 students.
