The purpose of appointing Team Faculty/Administrator Mentors for each of the 29 varsity sports programs is to establish a direct relationship between members of a particular sport team and the Trinity College faculty. The Team Faculty/Administrator Mentor serves as an advocate of the sport, and acts as a liaison leading to a broader network of faculty that can assist student-athletes in meeting immediate and long-term needs. Recognizing most teams vary in the degree to which they need support, the Team Faculty/Administrator Mentor fosters a relationship with his/her team in an effort to satisfy the specific needs of his/her team members.
