The strength of Trinity College starts with the positive relationships we form in our daily interactions with one another. One opportunity for support is affinity groups - a mechanism that brings people together around common identities, interests and experiences.
The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; The Mentoring, Advocacy, and Support program in the Office of the Dean of Faculty; and Human Resources are pleased with the suggestions that were made for affinity groups and the enthusiastic response of faculty and staff to join them. We encourage collaboration between groups where appropriate. The current names of affinity groups and a contact person is provided below. Please reach out to the contact of the group in which you are interested, and they will provide more information on meeting times, etc. We will put out a call for new affinity group suggestions each fall.
Please contact Sarah Raskin ([email protected]) with any general questions about the affinity groups.
