“Dr. Rose’s work in helping students to prepare for a smooth transition from graduate studies to meaningful careers in the public and private sectors is important if we are to ensure a strong competitive advantage for Trent students in today's challenging job markets,” said Dr. Douglas Evans, principal of Traill College.”
