The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) works to achieve program and strategic goals related to Summit, Trinity College’s Strategic Plan. Our work most significantly connects to Strategic Goal 1 and Objective 4. In order to work towards this goal and objectives, the DEI Office will provide an action plan each year (listed below).
Strategic Goal 1:
Design a distinctive, relevant liberal arts education that positions Trinity College as a first- choice destination for students, faculty, and staff
Objective 4. Foster an inclusive campus community that embraces diversity and complexity, engages across differences with integrity and empathy, and participates actively in the life and governance of the College
A. Reduce financial barriers for all students to access the full Trinity educational experience
B. Enhance resources to support an increasingly diverse community of students, faculty, and staff where all are welcome
C. Develop learning opportunities, in collaboration with students, to advance cross-cultural understanding and bridge divides in the classroom, in student activities, athletics, and in residential communities
D. Improve internal communications and strengthen governance structures to align with iterative institutional planning, increase collaborative engagement, and build trust among the Trinity community

DEI will develop and implement an annual action plan to meet Goal 1.
