HEIRS OF THE PAST,

STEWARDS OF THE FUTURE President’s Report 2018-2019


President Anderson with his wife, Kimberly, and San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg ’99 at Trinity’s 150th Anniversary Kick-off event.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT As the clock struck midnighton Jan. 1, 2019, Trinity Tigers

had a remarkable moment to celebrate: Trinity University turned 150 years old. Through research projects, community partnerships, and alumni fellowship, the University is spending the calendar year exploring the core of Trinity’s DNA and discovering what it means to honor such a milestone anniversary. We have uncovered stories that reinforce our unchanging commitment to educating the whole student and building lifelong relationships; likewise, we have defined—and redefined—what it means to use the liberal arts to thrive in an ever-changing world. I am pleased to share a selection of these moments with you as part of the 2018-19 President’s Report, in which we have highlighted some of the most compelling achievements of the year. The long thread of Trinity history continues to weave into our successes today. In 1869, the University opened its doors to classrooms hosting male and female students at a time when most educational opportunities were typically segregated by gender. Today, such forward thinking means Trinity continues to elevate its academic profile while increasing the diversity of each incoming class. This year was no exception as we received a record number of applications and hit a record-low acceptance rate. Among these records were significantly higher numbers of applications from underserved or first-generation students. It is fitting that enabling access to a Trinity education is also a crucial component of our history.

In the late 1890s and early 1900s, when the University was struggling financially, Trinity faculty often finished out semesters without full pay so their students wouldn’t have to bear the burden of increased tuition—a burden that otherwise may have forced some students to withdraw. Over the next several decades, this spirit of philanthropy inspired donors to pay it forward, endowing department chairs and funding state-of-the-art research equipment. In 2019, the Trinity community continued to exhibit that spirit in enabling student access to education: This year, the University saw a 10-year high in the number of alumni donors giving back to student scholarships. With these examples and more, I am reminded that we are both heirs of the past and stewards of the future. As we begin to shape our next 150 years, we look forward to living and breathing the University’s values in pursuit of national recognition for academic excellence and community impact. I am grateful for you joining me as we accelerate what’s next for Trinity. Warm regards,

Danny J. Anderson President, Trinity University

150th ANNIVERSARY

150 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE AND IMPACT Celebrating Trinity’s 150th Anniversary has been both festive and reflective this year—and there is more to come. This important milestone has provided us with opportunities to commemorate the University’s history of agility, resilience, and resourcefulness. We are heirs of a dynamic past and stewards of a promising future. As we work to define and accelerate what is next, Trinity is embracing its momentum and advancing to meet the needs of its community and future generations of Tigers.

Trinity Recognized at State Capitol The Texas Legislature proclaimedApril 25, 2019, as Trinity University Day

in honor of our 150th anniversary. In his private chambers, Governor Greg Abbot presented President Danny Anderson and Trinity representatives with a proclamation that lauded the University’s unrelenting focus and commitment to providing an education that has “established a legacy of success—a legacy that will long highlight the best of our great state.” On the floor of the Texas Senate, Trinity was honored with a proclamation initiated by State Senator José Menéndez, Dist. 26, from San Antonio. Sen. Menéndez recognized the Trinity delegation as he presented his resolution commending the University on its history of resilience, achievements, and success of generations of students. 4 Trinity University


150th Year Kicks Off in Service and Celebration Serving the community where we live is

an essential strand in the DNA of Trinity’s unique history, and community engagement was the centerpiece of Trinity’s 150th Anniversary kick-off celebration. On Feb. 1, 2019, more than 500 students, faculty, staff, and alumni marked the launch of Trinity’s yearlong celebration by volunteering at nonprofit organizations around the city. Various Trinity alumni chapters throughout the country also organized volunteer efforts in their own communities as well. The day began with a pep rally and inspirational remarks by Goodwill San Antonio CEO Kevin Bergner ’79 who encouraged Tigers to embrace Trinity’s tradition of thinking deeply and acting

meaningfully. From there, hundreds of volunteers fanned out across the city to perform acts of service, from assembling food boxes at the San Antonio Food Bank to clearing brush at McAllister Park. In one day, Trinity Tigers provided 13 community agencies with more than 1,000 hours of service. That evening, the Trinity campus was transformed for a celebration with food and drink, carnival rides, a beer garden, a petting zoo, and live music. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and Trinity neighbors were on hand as San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg ’99 officiated the start of Trinity’s sesquicentennial celebration. A spectacular fireworks show capped off the evening shooting into the sky over Northrup Hall.

6 Trinity University

Trinity University has passed the halfway mark in implementing Trinity Tomorrow, the 10-year strategic plan that provides a road map for the University’s future. Trinity Tomorrow builds upon Trinity’s many strengths through strategic objectives and foundations.

2018-19 Strategic Plan Highlights Objective 2D: T  rinity is expanding its interdisciplinary

program offerings by adding a new major and minor. Global Latinx studies is an interdisciplinary analysis of the Latinx experience from past to present, and architectural studies combines art and engineering to explore concepts of architecture and urban design. Objective 4E:Alex Serna-Wallender ’08, ’09 has stepped

into the role of University chaplain and Everett H. Jones Chair of Ministry. With a background from Trinity in urban studies and education, and a divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, Serna-Wallender is an ordained Presbyterian minister who will guide campus spiritual life and support inclusive communities for faith exploration. Foundation B5: Periodic academic program review

provides several benefits to a University. Academic Affairs has appointed a task force to develop guidelines for department and interdisciplinary program assessment. Working with the support of the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness, Trinity will implement a program review cycle that includes data‑driven self-study, incorporates the perspectives of two external reviews, and empowers a department or program to create action steps for the future.

The past five yearshave seen the University establish unprecedented

momentum in elevating the academic profile and increasing the diversity of its incoming classes. Since the 2013 launch of the Trinity Tomorrow strategic plan, applications to Trinity have almost doubled: In the 2013-14 application cycle, the University received 5,502 applications for first-year admission, and in 2018-19 it received 9,850. Because Trinity aims to enroll around 640 first-year students each year, the University’s acceptance rate has dropped to a record-low 29 percent. (By comparison, Trinity’s acceptance rate prior to Trinity Tomorrow was 64 percent.) This momentum has also accelerated the University’s goals for a more inclusive campus. This year, the University has continued to ramp up its efforts to minimize potential barriers to enrollment, ensuring that Trinity’s nationally ranked liberal arts education is accessible to students from any background or socioeconomic status.

MEANING AND PURPOSE Foundation D6: Develop a new generation of faculty, staff, student, and alumni leaders

University Participates in Gallup Engagement Survey Trinity launched its first-everGallup Employee Engagement

Survey in November 2018 for all faculty and staff. The initiative marks a first step in an ongoing effort to solidify and strengthen Trinity’s workplace culture. The survey, administered by Gallup, served as a measurement tool for engagement and provided data necessary to create actionable plans for improvement. Results obtained in spring 2019 showed that overall, faculty and staff are incredibly proud to work at Trinity University, and they find meaning and purpose in their work. However, the University identified two specific areas in which it needs to show improvement: finding new and better ways to reward and recognize hard work and dedication, and identifying opportunities for growth. “The executive leadership team is setting smart, measurable goals for improvement in these areas,” says Tess CoodyAnders ’93, vice president for Strategic Communications and Marketing. Coody-Anders notes that quantitatively, the University should strive for a substantial increase in the percentage of employees who consider themselves engaged in the workplace. Qualitative success will be measured by a feeling of value from employees who are excited to come to work every day. “The University incorporated specific questions from the survey in our University-wide dashboard to measure progress for the Trinity Tomorrow plan. As we receive divisional updates on a semester-by-semester basis, we will begin to see where we are making progress.” It is well-documented that the result of having a highly engaged workforce yields dividends: Employees are more productive, there is greater employee retention, and employees are invested in Trinity’s mission and vision. But, Coody-Anders clarifies, the Gallup process is about more than just this survey. “We are using survey results as a way to be intentional about engagement,” she says, “but Gallup is a movement on campus. As a long-range initiative, we will use Gallup to understand where both opportunities and challenges are. Beginning conversations about change that you and your team feel would meaningfully make a difference— what you do going forward is what really matters.”

ACADEMICS AND CAMPUS LIFE

INTERDISCIPLINARY INNOVATION The research is clear: Students who are actively involved in both academic and out-of-class activities gain more from the college experience than those who are less involved. Trinity University promotes experiential learning and community engagement, providing an education that is larger than the sum of its parts.

Trinity’s Makerspace gives all majors a chance to create You don’t see many English majors welding these days.

But at Trinity, there’s a place where students such as Aidan Windorf ’21, an English and chemistry double major, can operate heavy-duty laser cutters, 3D printers, lathes, and beyond— elbow-to-elbow with engineering students and with guidance from dedicated shop professionals. “This is Trinity’s Makerspace,” Windorf says. “The shop is a place where you can come with a wild idea, ask professionals for advice, and you get access to—and training for—all the tools you need to create it and anything else you can dream of.” Windorf stumbled upon the MakerSpace through the class “Engineering 2191: How to Make,” held for the first time in Spring 2019 and led by engineering science professor Kevin Nickels. The class is an opportunity for students of all majors to spend a semester learning how to use machinery in the MakerSpace.

10 Trinity University

In the class, Windorf ’s fellow students created artwork, board games, and even a functioning Tesla turbine. Windorf, who used to play the cello, decided to make a violin. Engineering science professor Wilson Terrell Jr., who serves as a major facilitator for the Makerspace and has been an instrumental figure in its establishment and growth, is an active figure students can expect to encounter in the shop. The Makerspace staff also includes additional technicians, student assistants and specialists, and is headed by science facilities manager Les Bleamaster ’98, former Navy SEAL and NASA collaborator. “It’s very different to be among engineering students and faculty as a humanities major, working on projects like this,” Windorf says. “Now I’m a chemistry major, I’m an English major, I work in the theater, and I’m in the Makerspace,” Windorf says. “At Trinity, it’s hard to just be one thing.”


Trinity launches Latinx major, architecture minor In May 2019, Trinity approvedthe creation

of two new programs of study that will strengthen and celebrate the University’s ties to the community. Beginning in the fall semester, Trinity will offer a major in global Latinx studies, an interdisciplinary program that explores the Latinx experience from past to present; and a minor in architectural studies that will draw from elements of art, art history, and urban studies. Global Latinx Studies The global Latinx studies major will build on the foundation of Trinity’s already thriving Mexico, the Americas and Spain (MAS) program, and will be housed in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures. This course of study is comprised of an interdisciplinary analysis of the Latinx experience from past to present. It includes modern languages and spans the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences. This program will be accessible and welcoming both to bilingual students and those who may not speak Spanish. Spanish professor Rita Urquijo-Ruiz says this new major is an ideal move for a university located in the heart of San Antonio. “Trinity is located very strategically, in terms of geography. We are part of the San Antonio community, a city that is close to Mexico and is a gateway to Latin America,” Urquijo-Ruiz says. “And because this is a majority-Latinx community, we have a great opportunity in

WE HAVE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY IN OUR HANDS FOR STUDENTS TO LEARN ABOUT THE LATINX COMMUNITY, NOT JUST IN THE CLASSROOM, BUT OUT IN THE CITY ITSELF.

– Rita Urquijo-Ruiz

our hands for students to learn about this community, not just in the classroom, but out in the city itself.” The major will connect San Antonio to Trinity through events open to the University and this community. MAS faculty will continue to lead conversations through events such as the Álvarez Seminar and Latinx Heritage Month in partnership with Trinity’s Diversity and Inclusion Office. Additionally, Trinity students will have access to a wide range of internships, and a world of arts, music and cultural experiences right here in the Alamo City. And beyond, international experiences with programs in Mexico, Central America, Cuba, and Spain, await.

Architectural Studies Trinity’s strengths in architectural history, studio art, urban studies, and engineering have always made it an ideal place to study architecture. Now, through the minor in architectural studies, Trinity students will explore elements of architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, historic preservation, and architectural history. Kathryn O’Rourke, art history professor and director for the minor, says the program will work in concert with several other departments. “We’re lucky to have such strong offerings in architecture, art, and urban studies, along with engineering,” O’Rourke says. “That’s so unusual for a small, liberal arts university.” And not many small, liberal arts universities are designated as a national historic district for their architecture, or have strong ties to a generational architect such as O’Neil Ford, as Trinity does. O’Rourke is advising students that the minor can help prepare them to study architecture in graduate school, but regardless of career path or academic interest, the minor will connect Trinity students to the San Antonio community at a pivotal moment in history. “There’s so much happening in San Antonio right now with growth and urban planning,” O’Rourke says. “We’re looking forward to getting our students out into the community. To have a minor like this at Trinity, it just makes so much sense.”

Trinity Faculty Recognized for Exceptional Merit Ten Trinity University faculty members

were recognized for their exceptional achievements during the 2018-19 academic year. This cohort of scholars was selected on the basis of having a “banner year” in their teaching, research or creative activity, and service, thereby exemplifying the University’s commitment to education and the values of perpetual discovery and enduring excellence. 12 Trinity University

The recognition comes with a one-time salary supplement of $10,000 for each selected faculty member, made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous donor. As part of this campaign, the University will recognize 20 additional scholars over the next two years (10 per year). To be eligible for consideration, faculty members must hold the rank of associate or full professor. Individuals may not receive a distinguished

achievement award and a one-time salary supplement in the same year. “This achievement honors many of our colleagues who vastly exceed the already high expectations of this University,” says Deneese L. Jones, vice president for Academic Affairs. “Their contributions to their students, departments, and their fields of research distinguish them as exemplars in the Trinity community.”

Going for the Gold Eleanor Davis ’20 was named a Goldwater Scholar by the Barry Goldwater

Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation, a prestigious program for students intending to pursue research careers in the natural sciences, mathematics, and engineering science. She is the 23rd Trinity student to be named a Goldwater Scholar since 1994. Davis is laser-focused on pursuing an M.D. or Ph.D. so she can conduct translational, or “bench-to-bedside,” research, which she explains takes useful data from clinical trials and other medical research and translates it into useable techniques for improving health outcomes. She is earning a double major in biology and business administration as she works toward becoming a physician-scientist. Davis says learning the basics of business administration is all part of her plan to pursue translational research. She notes that at Trinity, the academics are rigorous and professors have high expectations. “If I developed a technique, drug, or therapeutic, then I could use my business major when I disseminate that product,” she says. “I can also see myself forming a bio-tech, and I’d have to know how a strong company functions.” Davis also mentors a junior high student one-on-one through the Boys & Girls Club of San Antonio Young Achievers college-preparation program. Together, they work on writing prompts typical of college application essays.

COMMUNITY

ENGAGED WITH THE WORLD

A New KIND of Entrepreneur At Trinity, Daniel Lubetzky ’90learnedto

use market forces for good. Lubetzky, founder and CEO of KIND Snacks, has dedicated his life to social activism. The son of a Holocaust survivor whose Jewish-Mexican family has endured multiple migrations across the globe, Lubetzky has been inspired to make the world a “kinder” place. “My brain doesn’t function in silos of, ‘Can I do this as a business, or can I do this in the nonprofit world?’” Lubetzky says. “I think about the problem that I’m trying to solve, and then my brain starts tinkering with, ‘How can we do this in a creative way?’” As CEO of KIND, Lubetzky built his company to be more than a snack product: It lives up to its namesake through marketing programs such as KINDAwesome cards—cards given out when the company spots an act of kindness, or the KINDPeople program that funds new projects that are fostering amity and kindness. Lubetzky has also

founded initiatives such as PeaceWorks, the OneVoice movement, and Empatico, a free video conferencing platform designed to connect classrooms around the world. Lubetzky says Trinity is the perfect spot for other social entrepreneurs to make a similar impact on the world. Visiting campus for the Spring 2019 Policy Maker Breakfasts Series, Lubetzky

noticed the buzz around Trinity’s entrepreneurship program. Under the direction of professor Luis Martinez ’91, the program has launched a nationwide expansion of its Students+Startups initiative, is gearing up for the fifth annual Stumberg Venture Competition, and has evolved into an incubator for students of all passions, disciplines, and backgrounds to find creative solutions to the world’s problems. “I was so gratified to learn that there’s now an Entrepreneurship Hall where students get to coexist, exchange thoughts, create community, and come up with ideas; there were a couple of students from different grades that had joined forces to create things that were very promising for society,” Lubetzky says of his visit. “So it’s not just entrepreneurship, but social entrepreneurship. Frankly, I enjoyed learning from them more than sharing any words of wisdom­—seeing how highenergy and how real this program seems to be at Trinity.”


University Lecture Series Trinity extends its engagement into the community by hosting major lectures and events on campus. Michael Fischer, Ph.D., Janet S. Dicke Professor in Public Humanities, delivered the inaugural Dicke Public Humanities lecture, “Why Democracy Needs the Humanities.” In his lecture, Fischer asserted that disagreement is essential to democracy, and he explored the role the humanities play in fostering constructive approaches to conflict resolution that healthy democracies depend on.

Trinity on Tour Visits Lifelong Learners in Dallas Trinity University hosted Trinity on Tour

150 Voices Strong Choral alumni reunion honors anniversary year More than 120 Trinity choir alumni,spanning seven decades and traveling

from 22 different states, were welcomed by the University for the Alumni Choir Festival in February 2019. Alongside 50 current choir students, the combined choir was more than 150 voices strong: a tribute to celebrating this anniversary year. “As one of the oldest and largest organizations at Trinity, the choir program lies at the heart of the University,” says Gary Seighman, music professor and director of choral activities. “So it seems fitting, as the University celebrates its 150th Anniversary, that we would recognize how we are part of this history.” So Seighman and Rich Butler, Professor Emeritus of economics and alumni engagement coordinator for Alumni Relations and Development, collaborated to put together a weekend of music-making and fellowship. The festival was sponsored in part by the Dickson-Allen Foundation, Steinway Piano Gallery of San Antonio, and Trinity’s 150th Anniversary Committee. The weekend began on a Friday evening with Trinity’s spring choir concert. On Saturday morning, alumni and guests gathered at breakfast to celebrate former choir director Claude Zetty, where his daughter, Erika Zetty ’77, was the guest speaker. Then, current students and alumni came together for rehearsal before a combined choir performance with guest faculty musicians in Parker Chapel. Paul Gaedke ’90 and son Griffin Gaedke ’20 sang side-by-side during the concert. “Regardless of whether one believes in a higher power, when gathered to sing, this is what happens: You join with others in giving fully of yourselves, heart, soul, and strength for a singular cause—in this instance, the cause of creating something beautiful,” Paul said. “And that is exactly what occurred this weekend.”

for the third year, bringing together alumni, parents, and friends from around the country for a day of learning. With more than 80 Tigers in attendance at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Trinity on Tour brought together conversations on leadership, earthquakes, the Mediterranean Sea, and everything in between. The day began with a behind-the-scenes tour of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, where Trinity on Tour attendees immersed themselves in the many mystiques of the world, spanning in time from the Big Bang to modern prosthetics. Nick Severino ’88, vice president and CFO of Apple Retail, delivered the lunchtime keynote, “The Importance of a Liberal Arts Education in a Technological Age: A Personal Story.” Severino noted that a faculty-led study abroad program with business professor Donald Clark in Shanghai was part of what inspired him to open the first Apple store in China. This year’s “classes without quizzes” were led by classical studies professor Nicolle Hirschfeld, health care administration professor Amer Kaissi, and geosciences professor Glenn Kroeger.

ONE THING THAT REALLY STRUCK ME: TRINITY ALUMNI BASICALLY GAVE UP A DAY OF THEIR TIME TO HEAR VERY TALENTED FACULTY MEMBERS TALK ABOUT SUBJECTS TOTALLY OUT OF THE REALM OF THEIR DAILY INTERESTS.

GIVING FROM THE HEART

TRANSFORMATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES Those who had a transformational Trinity experience understand what it means to give from the heart. Those who feel the impact of that transformation know what it means to give to the heart. The alumni, parents, and friends who support Trinity University ensure Trinity remains an accessible institution for students of all backgrounds.

University Awards Neidorff Family/Centene Corporation Endowed Professorship Trinity University received a giftfrom Michael ’65 and Noémi K.

Neidorff and the Centene Charitable Foundation to support a new professorship. The Neidorff Family/Centene Corporation Endowed Professorship has been awarded to Deli Yang, Ph.D., associate dean for the University’s School of Business. Yang is the first professor to hold this chair. She teaches 20 to 50 students a year and leads the International Business Summer School Program. “The professorship allows me to share my life experience,” Yang says. “I have been privileged to encourage undergraduates to study abroad, particularly in China, and to help them seek international internships prior to graduation.” The Neidorffs have supported numerous important projects at Trinity through the years, including the Centene Corporation and Michael F. Neidorff and Noémi K. Neidorff Center for Innovation in Sciences, Health Care Management, and the Liberal Arts— fondly known on campus as “the Cube”—the Michael and Noémi K. Neidorff Art Gallery, and the REACH Symposium, among others. A permanently endowed fund will be used to support the Neidorff/Centene professorship, which is under President Anderson’s discretion to assign.

Trinity Launches School Design Network Through Walton Family Foundation Grant Trinity University is proud to announcethe creation of the School

Design Network, a new school incubator and principal fellowship program in the greater San Antonio region made possible by a $5 million grant from the Walton Family Foundation. The network will enable more than 40 educators and entrepreneurs to launch innovative schools in the San Antonio region over the next five years. “We are so excited to be partnering with the Walton Family Foundation on such an important initiative—providing resources to local educators and entrepreneurs so that they will be able to better meet the needs of our local K-12 students,” says Linda Mora, Ph.D., the interim executive director for the School Design Network in Trinity’s Department of Education.

WE NEED TO PUT THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF EVERY STUDENT FIRST, AND THAT MEANS MOVING BEYOND A ONE-SIZEFITS-ALL EDUCATION SYSTEM. – Alice Walton ’71 Trinity and City Education Partners—an education nonprofit devoted to groundbreaking public schools for San Antonio—have agreed to co-market and co-brand the new school incubator for the greater San Antonio region. This grant represents the enactment of the plan, curriculum, and model that were developed as part of a planning grant the University received from the Walton Family Foundation in 2018. The Walton Family Foundation, based in Arkansas, is a national nonprofit dedicated to improving K-12 education. “We need to put the unique needs of every student first, and that means moving beyond a one-size-fits-all education system,” says Walton Family Foundation board member Alice Walton ’71. “This program will allow educators and leaders to create the innovative, high-quality schools students need.” To open and lead schools in the San Antonio region, the network will offer programming and support through rigorous school design training, personalized leadership development, and coaching. It will launch with three to five participants later this year. “I am excited about the opportunity to enrich our offerings while expanding to meet the entrepreneurial and asset needs expressed by the local community,” says Deneese L. Jones, Ph.D., vice president for Academic Affairs. “We have the faculty talent and expertise to accomplish the goals of this initiative while partnering with the greater San Antonio region.” The University has a longstanding practice of forging deep bonds with area educational institutions, including the shared creation of the Advanced Learning Academy with San Antonio ISD and the development of school partnerships. 2018-19 President’s Report 21


GIVING FROM THE HEART

ENSURING ACCESS TO EDUCATION Trinity Exceeds National Trends for Alumni Giving Give Tigers a challenge, and they’ll exceed it—or so our Trinity

network has proven. With the help of several giving challenges, Trinity graduates hit the highest number of alumni donors in 10 years, bucking national trends. According to the 2018 donorCentrics’ annual report on higher education alumni giving, colleges and universities across the nation are seeing a decrease in the number of alumni donors by 3.9 percent. Trinity, however, boasted a 12 percent increase in the number of alumni donors who gave back to the University this year.

This was a 1.8 percent increase from last year’s participation rate, bringing total alumni participation to 15.5 percent. “Alumni tell me that they are tangibly feeling the momentum of our stronger national profile, obvious from the higher caliber students entering Trinity to the excitement their classmates feel when they talk about their alma mater,” says Michael Bacon ’89, vice president for Alumni Relations and Development. “It has been a joy and a pleasure to see them turn this momentum into financial support this year and into the next.”

Alumni showed significant support during three major giving campaigns throughout the year: The 1869 Challenge,held in October 2018,

sought 1,869 gifts in 1,869 minutes. Trinity alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends responded to this request, giving more than 3,027 gifts and more than $527,150 during the challenge, shattering previous giving-day records for the University. Tigers across the globe showed strong support for scholarships, athletics, and academics, and parents donated toward scholarships and parent funds. Alumni accounted for more than 45 percent of all gifts received and more than 50 percent of the total gift amount.

The Coleen Grissom Challenge,held in

Spring 2019, offered opportunities to donate to Grissom’s scholarship and engage in an exclusive webinar between Grissom and acclaimed author Margaret Atwood. Thanks to the generosity of Jim and Janet Dicke ’68, gifts to the Coleen Grissom Endowed Scholarship Fund were matched one-to-one to motivate donors and increase the endowment. Between January and May, Trinity raised $109,696 from 271 donors for the scholarship.

The End of Fiscal Year Challengeasked

alumni to push Trinity over a 15 percent participation mark. Trustee and parent Ted Beneski made a generous match of $150 for every new alumni donor and challenged parents to make their gifts with another match. The Tiger community responded in turn: Alumni participation exceeded this goal, reaching 15.5 percent by the end of May 2019, and parents doubled the amount of their challenge. Money raised from the challenge will provide scholarships that allow the best and brightest to attend Trinity.


Every gift matters. For 150 years, the University has relied on gifts from alumni, parents, friends, and foundations to help eliminate barriers to a Trinity education. In 2018-19, more than 90 percent of students received some form of financial aid. This is why every gift—of any amount—enables access and support to enroll the best and brightest students at Trinity. It’s not the size of the contribution that matters, it’s the outcome giving produces.

THE CHAPMAN FAMILY A Legacy of Support

When James A. Chapman died in September 1966, he was described as a “millionaire

who loved to give away money but hated to get credit for it.” The legacy of this oilmanturned-rancher who bequeathed a quarter of his fortune to Trinity is even more remarkable given that Chapman wasn’t a Trinity graduate. But many of his extended family were. In fact, since the early days in Waxahachie and Tehuacana, more than 100 members of the Chapman family members have attended Trinity, establishing a legacy that has contributed to nearly every facet of the University’s success. Since 1950, the combined Chapman trusts have generated more than $455 million for Trinity’s unrestricted use and have transformed Trinity University, funding construction, maintenance, renovation, research, faculty development, scholarships, and computer systems. Many of the University’s most significant buildings and spaces—including Chapman Graduate Center, Bell Athletic Center, the Chapman Fountain, Coates Library, Cowles Hall, and the “tree house” in the Center for the Sciences and Innovation—exist because of the Chapman family’s devotion to Trinity and its educational mission. In 1924, the University received the largest single gift in its history. The will of Philip Chapman, James’ father, revealed that he had set aside $100,000 for Trinity— almost $1.5 million in today’s dollars. The funds were unrestricted and immediately used to reduce the University’s deficit and make a substantial contribution to a capital campaign to build classrooms and upgrade crowded boarding facilities. Founding and selling oil companies in Oklahoma resulted in James Chapman and his business partner (and uncle) Robert McFarlin amassing nearly $60 million by 1930. By the end of World War II, James and his wife Leta were among the wealthiest people in America. The J.A. Chapman and Leta M. Chapman Trust, established in 1949, was the first of four family endowments that 24 Trinity University

would enable Trinity to grow and prosper. The only restriction was that the Chapmans were to remain anonymous during his lifetime. “I’m doing this to help people,” he often said, “not for publicity.” In 1962, James Chapman agreed to build a $1.5 million graduate center honoring his parents, Philip and Roxana Chapman. First conceived as a building for Trinity’s emerging graduate student population, the Chapman Center has since transitioned to accommodate both undergraduate and graduate students— and will soon undergo extensive renovations as part of a comprehensive project to update Chapman and the Halsell Center next to it. Eighty-nine members of the extended Chapman family attended the Center’s dedication ceremonies on May 29, 1964, just two years before James Chapman’s death. James Chapman’s sister, Ruth Chapman Cowles, and her husband, Andrew, were also Trinity benefactors in time, talent, and resources. Ruth, a Waxahachie campus alumna, was elected to the Trinity Board of Trustees in 1950 and served as an active member until her death in 1964. In addition to redesigning and remodeling the Cowles House at 130 Oakmont Court, she was responsible for much of Trinity’s landscaping and for furnishings in the Student Center and the Chapman Center. When James Chapman died in 1966, he left 25 percent of his fortune to Trinity in the Chapman Charitable Trust, estimated in value in excess of $100 million—one of the largest ever established in the country for educational and health organizations. When his estate was probated, his wife Leta was asked whether she wanted a widow’s half share of the estate. She declined. The will had left her husband’s personal effects to her and specified that no other provisions were made for her since she had her separate estate and it was their mutual desire that his be devoted to charitable use. Leta’s estate was bequeathed to Trinity after her death in 1974. Chapman and his widow each left $1,000 “as a token of love and affection” to their son, Allen Chapman,


CAMPUS IMPACT

FINANCIALS underscoring their dedication to educating future generations. Because all Chapman funds were unrestricted, they could be appropriated for the most urgent needs of the University as well as for less essential but equally meaningful additions. In 1988, the Chapman Charitable Trust, along with a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, enabled Trinity’s Department of Education to develop a humanities-centered major for elementary education teachers to help prepare them to fill the many roles of their profession. In 1995, Trinity’s Association of Student Representatives asked the administration to fund the purchase of a life-sized tiger statue to be located in front of the Bell Center. Thanks to a gift from the Chapman Trusts, a 1,000-pound bronze statue, symbolizing Trinity’s pride and spirit, was dedicated at unveiling ceremonies in April 1999. “LeeRoy” has become a campus treasure and a memorable part of every student’s Trinity experience. The Chapman family is still intimately involved with Trinity. In 2018, seven descendants of Fred A. Chapman, Sr., who graduated from Trinity in 1910, revised the scholarship endowment in his name created 40 years ago to favor students from rural communities, perpetuating the legacy that his brother and sister began.

The University has established a strong tradition of conservative and balanced budgeting as part of sound financial planning.
