2022 Virtual Celebration of Research
2022 TCRC Celebration of Research Recognizes Student Success!
The 2022 Trent Community Research Centre Annual Celebration of Research was held virtually on Friday March 25th, 2022. Every year, the TCRC typically supports Trent students as they conduct community-based research across the region. The opportunity to do research that has an immediate, positive impact in their community often motivates students to do outstanding work.
Our 2022 Celebration of Research featured:
- Presentations from current student researchers;
- The opportunity to speak one to one with students to learn more about their projects;
- Our annual student award showcasing outstanding research contributions.
