Trent University is one of Canada's youngest universities, established in 1965. Its concentration on a few areas of expertise - Environmental Studies, Canadian Literature, Women's Studies and a unique program of Canadian and Native Studies - have put it consistently at the top of ratings among Canada's small universities. Its attractive campus on the shore of the Trent River was designed by Ron Thom. Research is a mainstay of funding, helping keep student-teacher ratios low.
