3.01 Statement on Commitment to Diversity

Effective Date: October 1, 2012 (revised)

At Trinity College, we seek to honor the range of differences that mark us as distinctive. We are firmly committed to making ours a community of learning more fully reflective of the racial, cultural, and social diversity that is America’s greatest strength. At the same time, we are working to create an environment that encourages mutual respect, interaction, and engagement. We believe Trinity should be a place where those who live, work, and study here see difference not as a threat but as a challenge and a stimulus to learn — about others, about the larger world, and about ourselves.

Trinity is committed to the principle of non-discrimination on the basis of membership in a Protected Class throughout its employment policies, educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other College-administered programs.

Protected Classes are deemed to include: age, race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, genetic information, or national or ethnic origin.
