Institutional Positioning

Canada’s champion of COLLABORATIVE LEARNING that’s personal, purposeful and transformative.

Introducing a New Institutional Positioning for Trent

The results of the Our Time to Shine campus and community consultations are in. Trent students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends have identified what is different and special about our University and have shared with us why they think Trent is important, now and in the future. This feedback is the foundation of a new positioning statement for the University.

Trent University is…Canada’s champion of INTERACTIVE LEARNING that’s personal, purposeful and transformative.


Our new positioning is the basis for a new way to talk about Trent.

It will allow us to create a  narrative to connect our activities, communications and messaging – and as a result, our students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, influencers, funders, donors, partners, prospective students and community can form a strong and positive impression of Trent.

Trent’s new positioning statement is only the beginning

Watch as our new institutional positioning comes to life through a new toolkit for staff & faculty that will help them to support the institutional positioning in their work, communications and department-specific marketing (coming soon).
