Trinity College is where the liberal arts meet the real world—but how that happens continues to evolve. That’s why it’s our collective endeavor—our ability and our responsibility—to envision the Trinity we want to be and to pursue it with unwavering commitment.

We maintain our focus through a defined mission, a strategic plan, and a commitment to key initiatives. It’s how we advance our ideals while attending to the stability and sustainability of our tradition of independence.


Mission Statement

As the preeminent liberal arts college in an urban setting, Trinity College prepares students to be bold, independent thinkers who lead transformative lives.


Summit: Trinity’s Strategic Plan

Our strategic plan, which guides us toward our bicentennial and beyond, matters to all members of the Trinity community.



We are committed to enhancing environmental awareness, responsibility, and sustainability throughout the Trinity community.

“A preeminent college is made up of excellent students, excellent faculty members and excellent staff who want to engage in the intellectual enterprise. When I think about the future of Trinity, it will have those three key elements—and that’s an unbeatable combination.”

Joanne Berger-Sweeney President of Trinity College
