Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, the University's largest undergraduate college, was formed in 1972 by a merger of Trinity College for Men (usually just called "Trinity College") and the Woman's College. "Trinity College" is the most common usage, with "Arts and Sciences" added on, as in the phrase "Arts & Sciences and Trinity College." The administrative structure has varied over time. For example, there has been a Dean of Arts and Sciences, and a separate Dean of Trinity College. At present, the college's chief officer is called "Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and Dean of Trinity College."
