Student Affairs

Providing a purposeful, meaningful, and memorable Trocaire experience for all students.

Student Affairs Mission Statement

The Mission of the Student Affairs Division is to provide student services and programming from a caring, inclusive, and student-centered perspective that supports and enhances holistic learning within the tradition of the Sisters of Mercy.  Our goal is to empower students to strive to reach their full potential in the development of the whole person while supporting their academic and occupational success.

Our dedicated professionals are ready to be of service in many ways, with special emphasis on Advisement, Academic Support, Wellness, Mercy Action Project, Career Development, Counseling, Student Leadership, Campus Ministry, and multiple activities and clubs. Additionally, we implement the planning and preparation for commencement and for orientations of new and transfer students.

Many of you have multiple priorities in your lives outside of school: jobs, families, and other responsibilities.  We hope to enhance the quality of your experience here at Trocaire, as well as help you to step into the future with confidence, success, and a sense of service.
