A Note from the President

Inclusive Excellence is a Trinity framework that we must continually practice. It calls for actions of radical empathy, by considering another person’s point of view in order to connect more deeply with them. It is a foundational part of our mission. It must be integrated into our institutional operations. And it recognizes group and individual differences among all students, faculty, and staff.

President, Trinity University

Inclusive Excellence and Leadership


Trinity will achieve inclusion through theory and practices rooted in Inclusive Excellence. The four main components of Inclusive Excellence and Leadership are:
 Access and Equity

Ensuring the university welcomes historically underrepresented students, faculty, and staff and has the support systems in place to enhance their success.

 Diversity in the Formal and Informal Curriculum

Supporting diversity of content across academic disciplines, as well as the social dimensions of the campus.

 Campus Climate

Fostering a supportive environment that encourages all students to reach their full potential and strive for educational achievement.

 Student Learning and Development

Acquiring knowledge about diverse groups and developing cognitive complexity.
