During their stay at Goodenough, Trudeau community members will be treated as members of the College, with full access to Goodenough’s computer labs, its dining room, and the social and academic events that make the College known globally for the “Goodenough experience.” Trudeau community members will also have access to amenities (e.g., the library, the study rooms, laundry facilities, etc.) useful to travellers in London. For its part, the Foundation will open its networks to members of the College, facilitating their liaison with Trudeau scholars, mentors, and fellows; welcoming them to official Trudeau Foundation events, such as the Trudeau Annual Conference on Public Policy and the Trudeau Summer Institute; and including them in opportunities initiated by the members of the Trudeau community.
