Today’s students are tomorrow’s alumni. In order to positively impact a long-term relationship with the University, we must educate current Trinity students and young alumni on the collective impact of their involvement and the gifts that they make to the University. We will build a culture of stable support by encouraging current students to begin giving while still on campus with the assitance of faculty, staff, and the Student Ambassadors program. Alumni can model what it means to be engaged with one’s alma mater by setting a visible example to current students – through their real and virtual participation. For example, we will involve current students in conversations about the importance of giving and personal participation at Alumni Weekend events.
