Board of Visitors

Have a Game-Changing Project that Needs a Boost?

Is your organization stumped with a recurring vexing problem?  Do you need help launching a plan or even creating a plan?

Trinity's Board of Visitors is a group of committed alumni and business leaders who provide a sounding board for the President and assist the Office of Alumni Relations and Development.  

We want to support a couple of small, scalable projects that make a short-term difference at Trinity.  We are looking to leverage the diverse talents of our Board to help you launch a great idea or project. Think of the Board of Visitors as a consulting group of alumni from diverse backgrounds who can advise you on a concept or idea.  

Examples of projects:

  • Strategic planning for a student organization
  • Brainstorming for the upcoming 150th Anniversary activities
  • Support for University archives to better showcase alumni and school history
  • Launching a world-wide Tiger Pride Day
  • Engaging more alumni in the work of Career Services
  • Business leader input into a student leadership development program
  • Brainstorming the use of digital technology to supplement on-campus residential programming
  • Creating a travel program for alumni and friends
  • Feedback on University’s relations with surrounding neighborhood
  • Advice on corporate involvement and support with athletics program
  • Review and advice on how to expand summer internships for students
