Our Vision for Trent University

Trent is a dynamic university where students, researchers, faculty and staff engage in a campus life free from discrimination and harassment.  Trent community members are aware of their rights and responsibilities and are actively participating in eliminating discriminatory barriers.  Trent scholarship is informed by the principles of full and fair inquiry and all members of the community are participating and valued as equals.
