"Building the Community We Wish to Be" - Trinity's Campaign for Community
In the Residential Learning Community, we cultivate new and promote existing opportunities that contribute to student growth and personal development. We recognize that our students arrive on campus with a myriad of skills, capabilities, and experiences. We celebrate these accomplishments, while guiding students to opportunities that help them develop new, and enhance existing skills and competencies.
- Take ownership of their academic experience by setting educational goals, engaging in strategies that foster their continued learning, helping them formulate new questions to make informed decisions.
- Actively participating in reflective practices that encourage an understanding of self, learning style and abilities, as well as increase their capacity to relate to real-world matters.
- Comply with institutional expectations of academic standing, consider their interests, talents, and limitations, while exploring various academic disciplines and opportunities outside of the classroom and monitor their progress toward completion of their academic plans to inform their decision-making process.
- Act on a sense of personal and academic integrity, in consideration of both their well-being and their responsibility to the residential, larger Trinity, and Hartford communities.
- Exhibit self-awareness, by holding themselves accountable to an ethic of care and empathy, and by actively participating in the development of a healthy and robust community.
- Demonstrate their competence by developing an interest in, actively learning about, and understanding diverse perspectives.
- Embrace an understanding of the importance of sharing in and celebrating the many experiences and identities of individuals and groups from distinct cultural identities.
- Increase their personal cultural self-awareness thereby gaining new insights into how their own cultural backgrounds and experiences have shaped their complex identities and their interactions with others.
- Actively participate in campus programs, initiatives, events, and activities and become civically engaged in the greater Hartford area to intentionally and meaningfully impact these communities.
- Make informed choices about their personal health and wellness habits that enable them to achieve their academic and personal goals.
- Maintain a balance in their academic and social lives and by showing a commitment to a set of healthy habits that become part of their life-long dedication to their own physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental well-being, as well as a commitment to the health and wellness of the community of which they are a part.
