In keeping with OPIRG Peterborough’s mission “to create and sustain student and community-based engagement through research, education and action on social justice and environmental issues,” we strive to have a research project each year.

In past years, OPIRG has engaged in numerous research-for-credit projects in which Trent students teamed up with a Trent faculty member, OPIRG, and the TCCBE (TCRC) to conduct research projects.  Typically, we oversee 3 to 5 students, though in past years we have hosted as many as 18 student researchers!
