Faculty Mentoring, Advocacy & Support (MAST)

We are excited to initiate a new program of mentoring, advocacy, and support for all faculty members at Trinity.  There is more detail here, but here is an outline of the program:

  1. One-on-one mentoring and advocacy.  Faculty at all stages of their careers who are interested in having a mentor can do so by filling out this form.  Faculty at all stages of their careers who would like to serve as a mentor or peer mentor can fill out this form.  Mentoring can be general or for a specific issue or topic.  Mentoring/Advocacy can involve face-to-face meetings at the frequency that works for both parties, or can be virtual only.
  2. Affinity groups.  Faculty and staff are invited to suggest affinity groups by filling out this form.  These affinity groups can be by identity or by issue.  There are limited funds available to assist in convening the affinity groups or providing reading materials.
  3. Workshops on topics of interest to the faculty.  Each semester a facilitated conversation will be led either by a Trinity faculty or staff member or someone from the community.  Please feel free to suggest topics here.

Note that Trinity is now an institutional member of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity. Please explore the Center’s numerous resources and contact Professor Sarah Raskin with any questions.

Welcoming 14 New Tenure-Track Faculty Members

Fourteen tenure-track faculty members began new appointments at Trinity College on July 1, 2022. Eight of these new faculty members were hired through the college’s Special Opportunity Hiring (SOH) initiative, which was launched last year to help increase faculty diversity.
