Introduction

Programs of graduate study are introduced at Trent on a selective basis. Each program has been approved by the Appraisals Committee of the Ontario Council on Graduate Studies. Trent University offers graduate programs in Watershed Ecosystems, Canadian Heritage and Development Studies, Anthropology, Applications of Modeling, and Methodologies for the Study of Western History and Culture. In addition to the degree programs, an agreement with Queen’s University allows for selective enrollment at the Master’s and Doctoral levels in programs at Queen’s with actual study and research supervision under Trent faculty on Trent’s campus (taken from Trent University Calendar, 1998-1999).

Early materials were accessioned as 81-013 (Dean of Graduate Studies and University Research Office. Search Committee fonds). Further materials were received from Joseph Muldoon, University Research Officer, in 1988 and in 1992. An additional 3 boxes were received in July 1997. The records consist of files and correspondence related to research at Trent University and cover the dates 1970-1992. Boxes 1-11 are listed, while boxes 12-18 plus one loose bundle are unlisted. Further materials were received in 2014 (listed below). See also RG 17 (Associated Dean of Arts and Science).

SEARCH COMMITTEE fonds

Introduction

The position of Dean of Graduate Studies and Research Officer was created in the [1968-1969] academic year. Previous to this time, the small number of graduate students at Trent University were looked after by the Registrar's Office. The Senate search committee is responsible for hiring a Dean of Graduate Studies and University Research Officer. Since 1985, the Associate Dean of Arts and Science has been responsible for the position of Dean of Graduate Studies and University Research Officer.

This fonds consists of records, dated 1977, of the Senate search committee. The committee reported to President Nind and was chaired by Professor David Kettler. The fonds includes correspondence.
