TCRC to be formally integrated into Trent University

For more than twenty years the Trent Community Research Centre, and its predecessor, the Trent Centre for Community-Based Education, have worked in partnership with Trent University to create a unique community-based research and education program that has contributed to community organizations and experiential learning opportunities for students in the City, and County, of Peterborough.

As of July 1, 2018, the Trent Community Research Centre (TCRC) will be formally integrated into Trent University. With this transition into the University, the TCRC will be able to expand its relationships in the community by increasing the opportunities for students to engage in high-quality research that will address issues community organizations are facing. ThisĀ transition builds on the longstanding relationship between the TCRC and Trent University in responding to the needs of our community.

As part of Trent University, community-based research will continue to be done under the Trent Community Research Centre name, and the contact information for the TCRC will remain the same (,, 705-748-1093). TCRC representatives will continue to have input into the overall direction of community-based research being undertaken at Trent.

The Trent Community Research Centre looks forward to strengthening and expanding its relationships in the community. Through its projects, the TCRC will continue to support local organizations and provide meaningful community-based research opportunities for Trent students.
