With their faculty mentors, Trinity students regularly co-author papers and present at national conferences. Trinity’s Summer Undergraduate Research program is administered by the Office of Experiential Learning located in the Center for Experiential Learning and Career Success (CELCS) on the second floor of Coates Student Center.
