Led by a group of Trinity College students, staff, and faculty members, a new initiative called TrinVotes! is designed to increase the college’s voter registration and election participation, especially among students who are first-time voters.
Trinity College President Joanne Berger-Sweeney spoke recently with the Hartford Courant about Trinity’s involvement with the American Talent Initiative, a Bloomberg Philanthropies-supported alliance of colleges and universities that aims to enroll 50,000 more low- to middle-income students by 2025. Berger-Sweeney said that the initiative’s goal aligns with the college’s own commitment to diversifying its student body.
Ten start-up companies recently showcased their development work that has been supported by Digital Health CT, a Hartford-based business accelerator program in which Trinity College is a partner. President Joanne Berger-Sweeney has said that the goal of the partnership is to “accelerate start-up companies focused on digital health technologies, thus deepening the relevance of our liberal arts education and spurring an entrepreneurial ecosystem in our Connecticut home.”
