Objective 2: Foster “Productive Collisions” as a Defining Characteristic of Trinity University

Trinity has already begun to envision ways in which an interdisciplinary education marked by productive collisions will encourage our faculty and prepare our students to respond effectively to a complex environment. In order to ask new questions, or to gain fresh insights on enduring questions, we must draw upon a variety of perspectives. Trinity will embrace this approach in all aspects the University – including academic leadership, course offerings, and campus architecture. Our graduates will be conversant with multiple disciplines, prepared to work with people in different fields and from different backgrounds, and able to listen and communicate in writing and in speech.
