Center for Academic and Experiential Advising
The Center for Academic and Experiential Advising coordinates the College’s academic resources, supports advising initiatives, and drives the implementation of credit-bearing experiential learning opportunities within the Trinity Plus Curriculum.
As the central hub for the Trinity Plus Curriculum the Center’s work is rooted in three main pillars: The Academic Resource Collaborative, academic advising support, and the Experiential Learning Network. The Center collaborates closely with partners in Academic Affairs and beyond, always keeping the student experience front and center.
CAEA Mission Statement
The Center for Academic and Experiential Advising serves as a hub for Trinity’s curriculum. Working with both faculty and students, we help shape and support students’ academic and experiential pathways as they connect and engage with campus resources.
Our goal is to empower students to take increasing responsibility for their education in conversation with faculty, campus partners, and each other. This means embracing the profound value of a liberal arts education as students grow as learners and citizens, pursuing their particular intellectual curiosities and exploring transformational opportunities.
To that end, we support faculty academic advisers with information, workshops, and conversations. We also collaborate with many offices across campus, sharing resources aimed at helping students define and pursue their diverse, personal, academic, and professional aspirations through engagement with the rich possibilities of the Trinity Plus curriculum.
