Mission

Choosing to serve the Trinity Community in a leadership role is a great honor and distinction, but also a great responsibility.  Much of the position entails personal motivation and innovation.  Indeed the greatest challenge in accepting the job is representing your peers while constantly keeping the best interests of the entire community in mind.

Student leadership at Trinity helps to hone many personal and organizational skills needed out in the working world and will offer you a great opportunity to strengthen communication.  In effect you will be acting as the eyes, ears and voice of your constituents.

In a leadership role it is expected that you will participate in various meetings with the college administration, fellow student leaders, and with your constituents.  Public speaking, setting agendas, time management, and activity planning are all great skills that you will develop or acquire while serving as a leader.

Indeed there are many advantages to serving as a student leader, but it is imperative for you to remember that you are a student first.  Meeting your educational goals is highly valued, so there is a cumulative grade point average of a 2.7 to maintain.  If you have any academic or non-academic violations of the Honor Code, you are not permitted to serve as a leader.  You are encouraged to attend Trinity functions and act as a role model for your peers.

Stepping up to the challenge of student leadership is admirable.  Much of the experience depends on you personal vision for the community.  Trinity fosters personal growth through leadership.  As leaders you are a part of a great legacy.
