This year, our academic departments are competing in a friendly challenge. The department that receives the most gifts will earn an additional $2,500! The runner up receives $1,500 and third place gets $1,000. 

 

Trinity University blends the liberal arts and sciences with business and pre-professional programs, building a new generation of innovative problem solvers. 

 

The faculty at Trinity are lauded for being both world renowned and accessible to students. The connectivity and leadership the faculty bring to their every day teaching is the same as it has always been.

 

But there’s no teacher like experience, and initiatives such as the 1869 Challenge directly fuels experiential opportunities such as research, international engagement, entrepreneurship, community service, and more.

 

THANK YOU!!!!!!
