On Tuesday, Feb. 7, Trinity University students, staff, faculty, and alumni are invited to participate in one of four off-campus service events or one on-campus service project to honor the inauguration and investiture of Trinity’s 20th president, Vanessa B. Beasley, Ph.D. Since her tenure began in August 2022, Beasley has served as a light for the Trinity community, guiding the University toward its bright future as a liberal arts college on the national stage. Help spread this light and spark a positive impact in our local community by participating in one of the following service projects.
Just one spark can ignite an imagination. Let’s see what happens when one spark becomes many.
To register for these service events, visit GivePulse. Volunteer positions are limited and filling quickly, so be sure to register at your earliest convenience. For general questions about Tuesday’s events, please contact CELCS@trinity.edu.
