Bridging the Liberal Arts and the Future of Digital Technology
Trinity’s pathbreaking partnership with Infosys, announced in September 2018, marks an unprecedented collaboration between a liberal arts college and a global tech giant. It’s a national model for fostering new conversations between higher education and industry — and preparing today’s students for the future of work.
Applied Learning Initiative
Trinity and Infosys launched in February 2019 the Applied Learning Initiative, a set of programs designed to link the liberal arts and the future of digital technology. The Applied Learning Initiative is being housed at Trinity College’s new innovation center at One Constitution Plaza. A dedicated advisory board guides its educational content and programming.
From the Liberal Arts to the Future of Work
As one indicator of the value of a liberal arts degree, Trinity graduates are being hired by Infosys. Several of our students are also working each summer in Bangalore as interns in InStep, ranked the top internship program in the world.
