Welcome

Annual_report_notice_13-14The Trent Centre for Community-Based Education is an independent, charitable organization.

Our mission is to be a catalyst for community action through research.

We connect community with Trent University and Fleming College and others to mobilize the knowledge and expertise of community members, faculty and students to find solutions and identify opportunities
that contribute to the development of healthy, vibrant communities. 

Central to our work is our commitment to provide opportunities for university and college students and community members to learn new skills and effect community change through direct involvement in research in the community. Students gain academic credit and on-the-job experience by undertaking supervised research projects for local community organizations.

Our work is focused in the Greater Peterborough Area and, in collaboration with our partners, in the Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes and Durham regions.

Check out some of our currently available research projects and research projects that are underway.

We look forward to
working with you!
