Throughout Trinity College of Arts & Sciences, our talented and diverse staff is committed to helping leadership and faculty create, support and maintain an enriching environment for higher education. Our teams work within our administrative units, as well as across our three academic divisions — Arts & Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences.
In 2017, Dean Valerie Ashby established the Dean's Pillar of Excellence Awards to encourage excellence, celebrate staff accomplishments and recognize the valuable contributions of our staff. These annual awards are presented to non-teaching staff making significant contributions to the excellence of the school through their commitment to service, initiative, outstanding leadership, increased efficiency, enthusiasm, collaboration, mentoring and diversity.
Nominations are made by students, staff and faculty each spring, with the dean of Trinity College of Arts & Sciences selecting the winners in consultation with a committee of staff members. All non-teaching staff with at least one year of service are eligible, and the recognition comes with a $1,000 honorarium.
