We are in a time of rapid change in approaches to education. We are now looking forward with some combination of excitement and caution at increasingly sophisticated technology. We cannot avoid it; we must figure out how to use it to provide an even better education for our students. We must continue to enhance our adaptability to be prepared for ever-changing educational and global perspectives.
We are fortunate to have an excellent faculty and staff. We recognize that we must be prepared to support new faculty as well as our tenured faculty, and we must provide a sense of belonging to them just as we strive to do for our students. Retention will be key in a world where shortages of educators may be more common. Trinity’s values and culture remain at the center of our community as we integrate ways to support continuous change and improvement around teaching approaches for all faculty and staff. We also recognize that we need to adapt to a shift in personal preferences in the workplace and support those to the extent we are able.
