About the University
Trent University, one of Canada's best institutions, was created on the notion of personal, meaningful, and transformational interactive learning. Trent attracts top students from all across the country and the world because of its national reputation for excellence in teaching, research, and student happiness.
Trent applies critical, integrative thinking to all subjects on a daily basis. Trent's one-of-a-kind approach to personal growth via supportive, collaborative community participation is in higher demand than ever. Students take the lead through co-creating experiences that are based on conversation, different points of view, and cooperation.
Trent's students, alumni, teachers, and staff are active global citizens who are catalysts in discovering sustainable solutions to challenging situations, thanks to a learning environment that fosters a lifelong enthusiasm for inclusivity, leadership, and social change.
