Community-Based Research


Support impactful, community-engaged scholarship

The Trent Community Research Centre is a bridge for faculty to enable community-engaged scholarship. We connect Trent students and faculty to community groups with research questions, and offer support while students complete research projects for academic credit under the supervision of a faculty member.

Most of our student researchers come to us through a community-based research course in their home discipline, but a few approach us on their own. Independent students in particular rely on enthusiastic faculty, who can guide them through the conceptual and methodological challenges of doing original research while putting the needs of the community first.

If you have an idea for a research project, a community group you want to work with, or a student you think would be a good candidate for an independent project, please get in touch. We can help you work out a relationship that benefits everyone.
