Educate. Engage. Empower.

The mission of the Diversity and Inclusion Office (DIO) is to provide programs and services that enhance the retention, persistence, academic and career success of underrepresented and historically marginalized student populations.

We do this by educating the campus community on topics of diversity and social justice, engaging students in critical thought about privilege and oppression, and by empowering students to become change agents in their own community and the greater world.

Learn more about Trinity’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion on the Intentional Inclusion website.

Y’all means All 

There are several cultural and diversity organizations at Trinity that support students and educate the Trinity diverse cultures and groups. The Trinity Diversity Connection is the premiere diversity-related student organization, where diversity issues at large can be explored in a partnership with associate groups to celebrate, embrace, and advocate for a socially just campus and world.

We are here for tigers of all stripes and believe that the Trinity community should be one that makes all students feel welcomed, valued, and included. While policies continue to be developed and refined, we are proud to have a University Transgender Inclusion Statement and policies that help provide a fair and equitable experience.

Other cultural and diversity organizations include:

 

African Student Association Black Student Union Chinese Culture Club Filipino Student Association
German Club Indian Student Association International Club Jewish Student Association
