Trent University Association of Retired Persons (TUARP)
Congratulations on your retirement from Trent and welcome to TUARP, the Trent University Association of Retired Persons! As a pensioner of the university you are automatically a member of TUARP. It's an excellent way to keep in touch with the colleagues and friends you made while at Trent, and to make new friends among people who will 'know what you're talking about.' You are also considered a friend of the TUAA, the Trent University Alumni Association and able to access TUAA benefits. For more information and details please see the links below. We look forward to keeping in touch with you!
Meetings, News and Events
TUARP meets twice a year, in early May and during reading week in October. The meetings include updates, new business, refreshments and mingling, and noteworthy guest speakers. For more news, announcements and interesting Trent tidbits, members can read the "TUARP Times". All TUARP members are invited to attend the annual Christmas tea in December to celebrate the holidays.
In addition, TUARP members are welcome to attend all Alumni Events, general Trent Events, and are invited to the "You are the Heart of Trent" recognition and retirement reception held each spring.
