“I am excited to be selected as a recipient of the 2024 Mellon Emerging Faculty Leaders Award! It’s such an honor to have not only my research but also my work on behalf of Trinity students recognized in this way. It is truly an honor to represent Trinity amongst faculty from across the United States.”
– Dr. Kimberly Monroe

Dr. Monroe’s colleagues in this group hail from many distinguished universities including UCLA, Emory Brandeis, the University of Michigan and others.  These leaders are “…committed to the creation of an inclusive campus community for underrepresented students and scholars” with their scholarship focusing on “…critical issues such as religion, immigration, public policy, and race.”  They “…also take on additional campus responsibilities like mentoring, serving on advisory councils, working with underrepresented students, and giving additional talks and lectures.”

Trinity is grateful to Dr. Monroe for all her incredible work, and congratulates her on a well earned award!
