The President's Corner Page


Three weeks ago, I participated in an Alumni Weekend like no other. From the Class of 1969 and earlier to graduates from this past spring, alumni shared with me more than five decades of various perspectives.

Tigers often refer to themselves as lifelong learners—but did you know that the University itself has been learning for a lifetime, too? Beginning with its first class of teachers-in-training and leading to today’s students and alumni who use hands-on opportunities to solve real-world challenges, Trinity’s foundation is built on the concept of experiential learning.

August wraps up our video series exploring Trinity's values through conversations across campus, and my discussion with Experiential Learning director Jacob Tingle ’95 and biology professor Michele Johnson came at the perfect time.

President Anderson shares his personal and scholarly connections to El Paso and Mexico and calls upon the Trinity Community to unite in living our value of Intentional Inclusion. Watch the video in Spanish as well.

Thank you for continuing the journey with me as we explore Trinity’s values through conversations across campus. This month, I had a conversation with Alli Roman, director for Trinity’s Diversity and Inclusion Office, about our values of the individual and community. In a breath, we call this “intentional inclusion.”
