The Red Flag Campaign promotes a bystander intervention strategy to address and prevent intimate partner violence, dating violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment and stalking on college campuses.

Working Through / Working Forward
Working Through / Working Forward honors the importance of artistic practice and creative resolve during these unprecedented times of upheaval and uncertainty. 2020 and 2021 have been historic years marked by the presence of a devastating global pandemic, national turmoil, and the environment in crisis. Many artists turned to the familiar ground of their studios to process what was happening beyond. Some used the time in isolation to work on ongoing projects while others found their studio practice greatly altered. The exhibition brings together the work of five regional artists who were invited to share artwork made during these times. Each responded to this newly undefined terrain in their own way. Included are works by David Borawski and Joe Bun Keo of Connecticut; Rosalyn Driscoll and Tekla McInerney of Massachusetts; and Deborra Stewart-Pettengill of New Hampshire.

Philosophy Club Meeting
Through basing all our topics through that of philosophy, we can achieve a flow of conversation grounded by objective perspectives. Meaning, for an Other to disagree with you is an opportunity to learn and to hold the understanding of more than one opinion apart from your own, overall leading you to a much larger sense of the concept at hand. The topic of discussion we will be contemplating this Friday, is that of Education. What is education? What does it mean to be educated? What defines one receiving an education? What is the value of receiving an education at Trinity over a University? What is being sought, what is the end of education? and lastly, what is the end goal in which one can call themselves successfully educated?

Honorary Naming & Unveiling of Dr. Craig Yennie, Ph.D. Way
Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin and President Joanne Berger-Sweeney will celebrate the honorary naming of Dr. Craig J. Yennie Way at the intersection of Vernon and Summit Streets. Craig Yennie grew up in the neighborhoods of Frog Hollow and Barry Square. As a young boy he attended his first summer camp, called the National Youth Sports Program at Trinity College. This is when he fell in love with Trinity College campus. Craig was a Hartford Public school student, where he consistently excelled academically throughout his K-12 experience. Through his demonstration of academic excellence and community service, he earned a full scholarship to Trinity College in 2001. He flourished at Trinity College, where he went on to graduate with a Bachelor’s in Chemistry in 2006. While at Trinity, he brought his positive outlook on life and contagious laugh to the Chemistry Lab. He mentored and tutored his peers until his acceptance to Brown University, where he earned a PhD in Chemistry. For his entire life, Craig was a wonderful mentor and advocate for students and community youth. Prior to his sudden passing at 33 years old, he envisioned returning to Trinity to create more opportunities for Hartford students to get involved in the STEM field.
