Inclusivity for a diverse Trinity

Trinity's student body is increasingly diverse with students hailing from all walks of life, including disabled students; students with care-giving or employment responsibilities; student parents; neuro-diverse students; mature students; a growing LGBTQ+ community and international student cohort which also brings multiple intersections of race, ethnicity, language, religion and culture.

Below are resources which have been designed to help you gain a better understanding of how to make your practices more inclusive in the journey to be one Trinity community.
