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 engage in constant reflection on our practices and the impact it has on our students’ experience.
Recognizing that every situation is unique, we coordinate efforts with other units on campus and parents/families 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.
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.
Here at Trinity, Community Standards are an integral part of our students’ experience. Through our Community Standards process we foster students’ personal, social, and cognitive development.
Parents & Families As PARTNERS
We facilitate questions and concerns, helping you stay informed about campus happenings. We look forward to working with you as partners in your students’ Trinity experience.
As part of the Sustainability Action Plan, Trinity College introduced a new system of reusable takeout containers at its central dining location. If successful, the program may expand to other campus eateries such as The Cave and The Bistro.
This year’s “Color Our Collections” coloring book is giving the Trinity community a way to explore the library’s archival treasures through interactive art. #ColorOurCollections is a national movement to connect people with library collections through coloring.
