Trent University

Trent University respectfully acknowledges it is located on the treaty and traditional territory of the Mississauga Anishinaabeg. We offer our gratitude to First Peoples for their care for, and teachings about, our earth and our relations. We are a community of learners coming together to understand ourselves, each other, and the world we live in. As one of Canada’s top universities, Trent is renowned as a leader in Indigenous education and reconciliation. Trent incorporates traditional teachings and perspectives into our curricular and extracurricular programming. This is just one of the ways we think differently, and inspire our students to do the same. Find out more at trentu.ca/indigenous
