What is P.R.I.D.E?
Promoting Respect for Inclusive Diversity in Education first-year residential peer mentor program promotes a culture of support and understanding for the challenges that students from underrepresented communities face at a Predominantly White Institution and aids the campus community in becoming aware and sensitive to issues of DEI.
P.R.I.D.E. empowers students, faculty, and staff and amplifies the campus experience to foster an inclusive learning experience and meaningful connections via strategic programming that transforms the community. Introducing team building, leadership skills, and assisting students in becoming thoughtful representatives to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion students develop healthy self-esteem and diverse critical thinking skills that lead to a well-established personal foundation that promotes learning and development in all areas of their lives.
P.R.I.D.E Welcome Weekend
The P.R.I.D.E. Welcome Weekend is a three-day program primarily designed to help students from underrepresented backgrounds/identities (e.g. racial/ethnic, international, sexual orientation, and gender identity) become acquainted with the campus and make a successful transition to Trinity’s academic and social environment. We also invite students from all backgrounds/identities who feel they will benefit from attending to apply. Students will meet with faculty, administrators, and peer leaders and engage in discussions and fun activities, including a walking tour to familiarize them with the city of Hartford.
The application for P.R.I.D.E. 2023 Welcome Weekend will be available on the Starting Out Portal!
