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 at least one research project each year.

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