February is Black History month. Colleges and universities across the country are marking this national observance with events and educational opportunities.

Greetings from the Trinity campus, where the spring 2018 semester is officially underway. Classes have begun, but the Trinity community took time out Monday to honor the late civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. by participating in the city of San Antonio's MLK Jr. March, one of the largest in the country now in its 50th year.

2017 is quickly coming to a close on the Trinity campus. We are in the last days of final exams, and Winter Commencement, set for Saturday, Dec. 16, is fast approaching. I take this opportunity to wish you a joyous holiday season and peace in the New Year.

The dynamic nature of a university can find us working through a range of situations where we are confronted with loss and healing, thankfulness and celebration all in the same month. This characterizes the emotions the Trinity campus has experienced over the past few weeks.

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.
