  Posted on: January 13, 2017

Join the United Way on the Seeing is Believing tour, where you’ll learn about community partners who are actively engaged in the important work of housing those most vulnerable in the community. This is a great opportunity to explore community-driven research partnerships in the areas of homelessness and wellness.

A major objective of TRU’s Strategic Research Plan is to “reinforce and facilitate TRU’s role and leadership in the linking of research to community, social, cultural, scientific, educational, technological and economic development.”
