About Trinity College

Since its foundation in 1823, Trinity College, located in the heart of Hartford, Connecticut, has been educating students in the liberal arts with the educational and experiential foundations they need to succeed as informed global citizens. Trinity is a member of the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) and the Consortium On Financing Higher Education (COFHE). Faculty and alumni include recipients of the Pulitzer Prize, the MacArthur award, Guggenheims, Rockefellers, and other national academic awards.

While Trinity has enjoyed a long, prestigious history, the college finds itself poised in transition as the landscape of higher education across the country undergoes a fundamental shift. Under the leadership of Joanne Berger-Sweeney, who was inaugurated on October 26, 2014 as Trinity’s 22nd President, Trinity is looking forward to a bold future that will require innovation borne out of long-term strategic planning that will make the college even more visible and competitive. Among the strategic plan’s broad goals is to design a distinctive, relevant liberal arts education that positions Trinity increasingly as a first-choice destination for students, faculty, and staff.

Human Resources at Trinity

The  Human Resources Team at Trinity is dedicated to creating an infrastructure that encourages and supports a community of individuals working in a wide variety of academic and non-academic positions. We are committed to providing the best possible service to our employees and the college.  We recognize the diverse composition and needs of our community of employees and strive to respond to those needs in a professional, caring and equitable manner by:

  • Recruiting and promoting the best-qualified people – while recognizing and encouraging the value of diversity in the workplace.
  • Providing a competitive salary and benefits package for our employees.
  • Establishing, administering and effectively communicating sound policies and practices that treat employees with dignity and equality, while maintaining compliance with employment and labor laws and College directives.
  • Promoting a work atmosphere that is safe, healthy, secure and conscious of family and community relations.

The Office of Human Resources has a unique role in the college organization, reporting to both the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer. This innovative dual reporting structure provides an opportunity for the team to work in close partnership with college leaders who bring unique perspectives and valuable skill sets in responding to an increasingly complex higher education environment. Most significantly, this bold, forward leaning structure means that our leaders are passionate about working collaboratively with stakeholders across the campus to ensure that Human Resources is included as an essential thought partner in the strategic planning and implementation of new ideas that respond compassionately, effectively, and timely to the expressed needs and concerns of members of the Trinity community.
