Strategic Research Plan
Trent University's Strategic Research Plan has been developed around three integrated areas where Trent researchers have special expertise, often at a world‐class level. These interdisciplinary research themes have been organized around Trent's strengths and the strategic directions that our university’s research is heading.
These three areas are:
- Humanities & Culture, which is characterized by an interdisciplinary overview of the human condition;
- Healthy & Sustainable Communities, a research theme that has global impact, which includes collaborative and community‐based research in Psychology, Nursing, Education and Business. Also, and specific to Trent, a critical mass of research and community building knowledge is found in faculty’s research within Indigenous Studies;
- and The Environment, a theme that Trent has had decades of work within.
