The Digital Transformation Program will help Trinity University reach its goal of becoming a nationally recognized liberal arts university by improving our ability to use information, creating better and more valuable experiences for our students, faculty, staff and alumni.

This program will also assist us in automating the necessary but mundane, transactional daily activities so that we can invest our time and other resources in the most important and strategic things. Over time, this will have an enormous and positive impact.

Goals and Focus Points

Primary goal: replace outdated enterprise systems with ones that will improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and end user satisfaction of processes within core systems.

Goal 1:  Improve self-service and satisfaction rates across campus 

Goal 2:  Increase student retention and graduation rates

Goal 3: Cultivate lasting relationships with students and alumni

Goal 4: Inform and bolster data-based decision-making


Eight Primary Focus Points of the DX program:

Streamline Finance Processes.
Inefficient, error-prone paper-based finance auditing will be replaced by efficient, easy digital workflows. Transparency and timeliness are the main goals.

Recruit, Reward, and Retain the Best People.
The modernized Human Capital Management system will maximize the recruitment and employee experience through automating HR- and budget-related tasks.

Facilitate Connections and Campaigns.
To prepare for Trinity’s major upcoming capital campaign, a system capable of managing alumni connections, donor records, contribution portals, and campaign marketing all in one place will be developed in Salesforce/Affinaquest.

Create One Hub for Student Data.
Manual, paper-based student data collection systems will be entirely revamped and made exclusively electronic, helping faculty and staff to better serve the Trinity community. 

Whether recording grades, tracking progress towards a degree, establishing financial aid eligibility, or housing Res Life information, the SIS will make sure that all student-related data is easily accessible in one place.

Improve Graduation and Retention Rates.
It will be easier than ever for students to stay up-to-date on their progress and receive early interventions when necessary.

A new system will be created that pulls information from several sources to inform student advising sessions and create alerts regarding academic and behavioral performance.

Modern tools for students and faculty.
Trinity's replacement for T-Learn, the new LMS will provide a new home for syllabi and course materials, as well as improvements on the grade book

Deepen and Sustain Relationships.
New systems will allow Trinity to move towards more integrative Customer Relationship Management processes to better manage connections with current and prospective students, parents, faculty and staff, and alumni.

Individualized portals for each group will personalize user experience and facilitate data extraction, analytics, dashboarding, and reporting.

Accessibility Across the Board.
New, interconnected data systems will increase the accuracy, security, and accessibility of information across campus, rendering data silos a thing of the past.
