It is a great honor to serve as president of this historic and important institution of higher learning. For nearly 200 years, Trinity College has embraced the deep inquiry and broad learning that define a liberal arts education. Our identity as an institution both in and of the vibrant, diverse capital city of Hartford provides global perspective and real-world relevance to the education we deliver.

I am inspired every day by the generations of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and parents whose commitment to Trinity has helped this institution thrive since its founding in 1823 and whose dedication moves us toward an incredibly exciting future.

We are a community of thinkers and doers, driven by our shared love of Trinity and a passion to contribute to the public good. We help students become bold, independent thinkers who lead transformative lives. I invite you to learn more and see if Trinity is the place for you.
