This Thanksgiving season I reflect on the values that bind us as a community. I am thankful to belong to a community that can have civil and constructive conversations about very difficult topics and issues.

I write to you, after the results of this historic election, to acknowledge the emotions of our campus community and to challenge you to reflect on the values that are the roots that keep us grounded.

Dear Trinity Faculty and Staff,

The Fall 2016 semester has been productive and purposeful for Trinity faculty, staff, and students. Classes, research, extracurricular activities, internships, high profile lectures, meaningful dialogues, and Tiger Sports combined, contribute to a full campus experience. I thank you for all that you are doing to make the Trinity experience the best it can be for our students.

As an institution, we are affected by numerous laws and regulations, some of which require changes. Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Labor announced a significant change to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
