Student Services

The Mission of the Student Affairs Staff is to provide services from a caring and student-centered perspective in the spirit of the Sisters of Mercy.  Our goal is to empower students to strive to reach their full potential in development of the whole person while supporting their academic success.  In pursuit of this goal we will assist students in the areas of personal growth, leadership development, career preparation, diversity, advocacy and service to the college and broader community.

Our dedicated professionals are ready to be of service in many ways, with special emphasis on career development, personal counseling, student leadership, health records, 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, responsibilities. We hope to enhance the quality of your stay here at Trocaire, as well as helping you to step into the future with confidence, success and a sense of service.
