Welcome to Faculty Highlights, a blog that features the scholarship and achievements of Trinity College faculty. The College’s mission states that several elements are central to the quest for excellence in liberal arts education, among them:

  • An outstanding and diverse faculty who excel in their roles as teachers and scholars, bringing to the classroom the insight and enthusiasm of people actively engaged in intellectual inquiry.
  • A rigorous curriculum firmly rooted in the traditional liberal arts, but one that also integrates new fields of study and interdisciplinary approaches to learning.

In an effort to emphasize these points, Faculty Highlights will explore and promote the groundbreaking and often interdisciplinary research interests of our faculty members, as well faculty in the news. We hope to cover a wide range of individuals, topics, projects, and accomplishments of Trinity’s remarkable faculty.
