Intellectually impressive. Fiercely determined. Unquestionably accomplished.


Since its foundation in 1823, Trinity College, located in the heart of Hartford, Connecticut, has been educating students in the liberal arts with the educational and experiential foundations they need to succeed as informed global citizens. Trinity is a member of the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) and the Consortium On Financing Higher Education (COFHE). Faculty and alumni include recipients of the Pulitzer Prize, the MacArthur award, Guggenheims, Rockefellers, and other national academic awards.

While Trinity has enjoyed a long, prestigious history, the college finds itself poised in transition as the landscape of higher education across the country undergoes a fundamental shift. Under the leadership of Joanne Berger-Sweeney, who was inaugurated on October 26, 2014 as Trinity’s 22nd President, Trinity is looking forward to a bold future that will require innovation borne out of long-term strategic planning that will make the college even more visible and competitive. Among the strategic plan’s broad goals is to design a distinctive, relevant liberal arts education that positions Trinity increasingly as a first-choice destination for students, faculty, and staff.

At Trinity College, we’re known for getting things done—and for doing them in a way that creates lasting meaning. Students come here to engage in a challenging liberal arts education, live as part of a tenacious community, explore what’s possible, and find answers to the challenges of tomorrow.
