Research

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 TCRC (Trent Community Research Centre) research project each year.

OPIRG has engaged in numerous research-for-credit projects in which Trent students teamed up with a Trent faculty member, OPIRG, and the 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!
