Trinity University to join Liberal Arts College Racial Equity Leadership Alliance

Universities share diversity & inclusion insights to improve racial equality.

Trinity University is one of 53 inaugural member institutions of the University of Southern California (USC) Race and Equity Center’s Liberal Arts College Racial Equity Leadership Alliance.

Husch Blackwell Update

This summer, President Anderson engaged the law firm of Husch Blackwell to conduct an independent review of personnel issues and racial climate concerns connected to the departure of Black Student Life staff and student employees, as well as student-conduct disciplinary issues. The investigation was recently completed, with the following findings and recommendations:

Your vote. Your voice.

Dear Trinity Community,

A pivotal presidential election is fast-approaching on November 3. Even sooner, those eligible to vote in Texas must register by October 5. The right to vote is a fundamental one and it helps ensure that all voices are heard.

Readiness and Support

Dear Trinity Students:

As we near the beginning of classes both in-person and remotely, I want to wrap-up our focus on readiness by emphasizing academic, mental, emotional, and spiritual preparedness.

The beginning of a new school year always comes with stress, and this year, an uncertain pandemic, combined with racial upheaval and a chaotic election season, will no doubt add to our anxiety. They can distract us academically, rattle us emotionally, and wound us spiritually.

Our Campus is Ready

Greetings Trinity Students:

The summer has flown by, and thanks to the incredibly hard work of faculty and staff, Trinity is poised to begin the Fall 2020 semester. I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we are all excited to move beyond “planning,” and start “doing.”

Supporting International Students at Trinity University

As you may know, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently announced a policy change that denies international students full access to their education should their institutions need to implement online instruction.

Dear Faculty and Staff,

Seeking Hope in a Time of Despair

Dear Trinity Community,

I write to you today as I seek hope in a time of despair. My heart is heavy as I continue to mourn the death of George Floyd in Minnesota last week. I think about the death of Breonna Taylor in Kentucky and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. The litany of loss has produced intense reactions for us all as we confront, yet again, the continuing pattern of senseless deaths of African Americans from police brutality. These acts of violence betray the values of equality and freedom that inspire the best in our country.

Fall 2019 Budget Briefing

To complement spring's budget forum, Trinity University held a fall budget briefing this year to provide an update on the state of the institution. At this briefing, I discussed our strategic priorities, reflected on our progress midway through Fiscal Year 2019-20, and provided a snapshot of the forecasted budget for Fiscal Year 2020-21.
