Fostering a Community of Care and Compassion

The Office of Student and Community Life cultivates an inclusive and healthy community that fosters growth, exploration, care, and engagement. To help sustain a community of engaged students who exhibit academic and personal responsibility, we constantly reflect on our policies and practices, and the impact it has on the student experience.

Recognizing that every situation is unique, we coordinate efforts with campus partners and parents/guardians to help students navigate their path forward. Together, we advise, guide, and care for students throughout their time at Trinity. In addition, we uphold our community standards and guide students, as they work to balance their academic and personal needs.

Above all, we encourage students to practice self-advocacy and engage in active problem solving. With this in mind, we urge students to be proactive in the search and use of resources and services.

Have questions or concerns about student and community life or student services? Please do not hesitate to contact us.


Meet the Deans

Coming from various walks of life, we bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our roles. We each have unique personal and professional backgrounds that inform our practice and the ways in which we engage with the community.


How We Can Help

Our office assists with academic guidance, dean’s certification, college policies and community concerns, student personal well-being, and student emergency funding based on unforeseen and extreme necessity.


Campus Resources

Trinity offers a network of resources to help students throughout their time here. We encourage students to be proactive in the search and use of resources and services.


Make a Referral Or Submit a Concern

Submit a Care and Wellness Referral if you are concerned about a student’s academic progress or personal wellness.

Submit a Community Concern Report if you witnessed, experienced, or have knowledge of an incident which you believe violates Trinity College policy.
