Who We Are

Home to two Canada Research Chairs as well as leading university scholars from across Trent’s humanities, social sciences and professional programs since 2013, the Trent Centre for Aging & Society draws together an interdisciplinary team of more than 30 faculty, students and community stakeholders to work together building dialogue around issues related to aging and critically informed aging research.

Together, we promote innovative research, education, and community engagement that challenges ageist policies and practices, and is responsive to the issues facing older people and aging communities.

Our Vision

To make Trent University one of the international leaders in interdisciplinary aging studies.
