One of Canada's top universities, Trent University is consistently recognized nationally and internationally for award-winning faculty who are committed to the success of the individual student. As dedicated mentors and teachers, Trent faculty pride themselves on making their classes and lessons both challenging and enjoyable for their students. 

At a University renowned for teaching excellence, faculty members are honoured on an annual basis with a number of distinguished teaching awards. For taking the student experience to the next level, Trent’s teachers have also been recognized provincially and nationally with the most prestigious teaching awards and honours. 

Continuing the rich tradition of educational leadership and innovation at Trent, Teaching Fellowships enable selected faculty to pursue meaningful and sustained teaching and learning initiatives and/or research. Teaching Fellows combine the completion of timely and relevant teaching and learning projects, the facilitation of faculty mentoring and engagement, rigorous scholarship on teaching and learning, and creative and interactive knowledge dissemination which fosters ongoing discussions and developments in the Trent community and beyond.
