Leaving your Legacy at Trent University

What is a legacy? It’s about linking generations, leaving your mark after you’ve gone, and honouring the things you feel are most important. It’s not only about paying it back but about paying it forward. Legacy is all about merging the past, present and future.

“A university is a growing, living legacy– and it

needs all kinds of support.”

-Professor THB Symons

Founding President, Trent University
