DiversityEdu: Personal Skills for a Diverse Campus

Welcome to Trinity!
We are excited you have chosen to join our community. Our mission is to prepare students to be bold, independent thinkers who lead transformative lives. Everyone you will come into contact with at Trinity takes that charge very seriously and we will do all we can to help you meet these expectations. We see this as a shared responsibility among us. As part of this work, we are asking all incoming students to complete an online course, “DiversityEdu: Personal Skills for a Diverse Campus,” by August 29, 2019, so that you are prepared to participate in discussions during new student orientation and throughout the academic year. It should take about an hour to complete. Please keep in mind that not completing this course by September 30 will result in serious consequences affecting academic registration for the spring semester.

We are committed to giving you the knowledge, experiences, and skills needed to ensure your success at Trinity and beyond. Graduation may seem far in the distance, and your post-grad future even more so, but know that we are thinking about your life after Trinity even as we plan for your first days on campus. We are aware of what employers, medical schools, and graduate schools are expecting. We know, for example, employers and medical schools rank cultural competence and the ability to work as part of a team among the top skills they are seeking in candidates. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

At Trinity, you will have the opportunity to meet, get to know, work with, and establish long lasting relationships with people from all over the world and backgrounds very different from yours. It’s our responsibility to provide you with a range of opportunities to enhance your ability to interact and communicate effectively in these new relationships. This course is one way we are meeting that responsibility. Your responsibility is to enter into these opportunities with curiosity, an open mind, and a willingness to learn something that may help you better understand how you view the world, and how someone else might view it. I hope you’ll approach this course with these thoughts in mind.
Welcome to Trinity and the exciting journey that you’re about to begin!

Sincerely,

Dr. Anita Davis
Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Trinity College
