Civically Engaged Students
Trinity’s Office of Community Service and Civic Engagement is committed to creating future civic leaders through active student participation in the Greater Hartford area. Led by Joe Barber, a Trinity staff member since 1996 and director for 18 years, the office builds and sustains strong partnerships with the Hartford community. Recent collaborations have included the Southside Institutions Neighborhood Alliance (SINA) School Supply Drive and the Feeding 2020 initiative, which delivers meals to Hartford families. Project PACKS provides 25 backpacks of food each week to the Hands on Hartford Backpack Nutrition Program, which distributes 250 backpacks of food per week to children who may not have access to consistent meals over the weekends.
