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.
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.
A group of Trinity College students recently attended a Connecticut Forum discussion with documentary filmmaker Ken Burns. “I was motivated to learn more about documentaries, knowing from Burns that they are no less creative than scripted films,” writes Vy Duong ’26, a double-major in political science and film studies.
Zeynep Su Oguzer ’26 participated in the launch of the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Environmental Youth Advisory Council (NEYAC) in Washington, D.C. “Whether I want it to or not, climate change will always be part of my life. It’s something that I can’t close my eyes to,” she said.
Located on lower level of Mather Hall, the resource reflects a growing recognition of food insecurity on college campuses. The number of food pantries at schools nationwide has swelled from 80 to around 800 in the last decade, according to Diverse Issues in Higher Education.
