Message from the Director

As we celebrate five immensely successful years, we welcome you to our new home in the lovingly restored and renewed Bata Library. The Peterborough region’s community members inspire us to reimagine the possibilities offered by an aging population. We’re thrilled to host impressive researchers from across the globe. They come here because of our stellar international reputation, genuine collaborative spirit, original thinking, and creative approaches to critical studies of aging. As the number of TCAS student members swells, we brim with excitement about the future of interdisciplinary aging studies at Trent and around the world.
