A Global College

Through identification and study of relevant global demographic trends and projections, the Global College subcommittee will develop a plan that aligns Trinity’s strengths and assets with the needs and interests of a rapidly changing world.  The plan will seek to position Trinity as a global leader in providing education and disseminating knowledge in new, collaborative, and cost-efficient ways around the world, with a particular focus on urban centers.  The subcommittee’s work will span study away programs, curriculum, relevant scholarly centers, recruitment and support of globally-engaged faculty,  international recruitment of students , and engagement and partnerships beyond our home in Hartford.  Critical questions include:  What is distinct about Trinity’s global engagement?  How can we enhance Trinity’s unique global/urban connection?
