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 support at least one TCRC (Trent Community Research Centre) research project each year.
We engage in and encourage research as it allows for more critical and change-provoking views over various issues.
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!
If you are interested in initiating or taking part in a research project, submit a proposal or contact us for more information.
