Strategic Research Plan
Trent University's Strategic Research Plan has been developed around three integrated, interdisciplinary research themes organized around Trent's strengths (often at a world-class level) and the strategic directions in which the University’s research is heading.
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
Trent University is strongly committed to raising awareness around equity, diversity and inclusion concerns across both the Canada research chairs program and its broader research community. We recognize that by fostering a diverse and inclusive research culture, we create opportunities and an environment that allows students and faculty to develop and flourish as individuals and global citizens.
