In her letter to the Trinity College community following the April 2023 meeting of the Board of Trustees, Trinity President Joanne Berger-Sweeney announced, “Trustees voted to award tenure and promotion to four excellent faculty members to the rank of associate professor. Please join me in congratulating them on this wonderful—and well-earned—milestone in their careers.”

At the February 2023 board meeting, the Trustees voted to promote three faculty members to the rank of full professor. “So much of our growth and success in establishing Trinity as a first-choice destination is because of the care and commitment our faculty members bring to campus to fulfill our academic mission,” Berger-Sweeney said.

The Trustees also granted emeritus status to 16 longtime faculty members for their lasting contributions to the College.
