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 interdisciplinary 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.
Trent University is an international leader in interdisciplinary aging studies that seeks to celebrate aging, understand diverse experiences of aging, and challenge ageist practices in our communities and culture.
