Multicultural Affairs Office Staff

The Office of Multicultural Affairs, located on the second floor of Hamlin Hall, is home to many dedicated people working to improve and preserve Trinity College's diversity.

 Anita Davis, Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

 Anita Davis joined Trinity in September 2018, coming from the Associated Colleges of the South (ACS), where she has served as director of diversity and inclusion for the ACS consortium of 16 colleges and universities. She also was a tenured associate professor of psychology at Rhodes College in Memphis, which, like Trinity, is one of a small number of liberal arts colleges located in a city.

In her role with the Associated Colleges of the South, Davis’s primary responsibilities were to support member institutions in their collective and individual efforts to advance diversity and inclusion goals on their campuses and in their communities. At Rhodes College, she was the inaugural faculty director of the African American Studies Program for five years, and associate dean of academic affairs for seven years, with responsibilities including accreditation, curriculum and program assessment, faculty evaluation and mentoring, and supporting diversity and inclusion initiatives.

A member of the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education, Davis holds Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in clinical/community psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a B.A. from Rhodes College.
