Trent TCRC receives $1.2M for community-based research


Trent University’s Trent Community Research Centre (TCRC) has received a $1.2M gift that will support community-based research. The four-year commitment—made by an anonymous donor—will be used for student and employer training, hands-on learning opportunities, primary research, and research-related travel and expenses for students. “Thanks to this generous donation, even more students will become engaged in local causes that fuel their passions, and in many cases, shape the trajectory of their life and career,” said Trent Careerspace Director Kevin Whitmore. “Community-based research showcases the power of collaborative learning and the value of work-integrated opportunities for students to make a positive difference in their community.”
