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.

Tigers Are a Force In Motion

Trinity University is part of the fabric of San Antonio - we’ve called the Alamo City home since 1942. However, our story begins almost exactly 150 years ago, on April 20, 1869. That’s when our founders chose the tiny town of Tehuacana as Trinity University’s first home. It would not be its last.

Protecting our campus community, strengthening our sense of connection

Dear Trinity Students,

For the past two years, I have participated in parts of the New Student Orientation in August. I absorb the various skill sessions designed to equip you to deal with the reality of college life and Trinity University. I write today to ask you to think about ways you can deploy your "bystander intervention" skills more broadly.

Hurricane Harvey: Relief Effort Update

The Trinity community continues to respond with assistance to those affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in numerous ways. This week, Trinity’s Student Government Association (SGA) and the Trinity University Volunteer Action Community (TUVAC) organized a drive to collect food and household items that will be donated to the San Antonio Foodbank. Students, faculty, and staff donated enough non-perishable food items, baby supplies, and pet food, among other household items, to fill a large truck.
