Staff members connect and celebrate during periodic staff appreciation events coordinated by the Office of the Dean.
Throughout Trinity College of Arts & Sciences, our talented and diverse staff is committed to helping our leadership and faculty create, support and maintain an enriching environment for higher education. Our teams work within our administrative units, as well as among our three academic divisions — Arts & Humanities, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences.
In 2017, Dean Valerie Ashby established the Dean's Pillars 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, with the Dean of Trinity College of Arts & Sciences selecting the winners in consultation with an awards committee of staff members.
