Research & Graduate Studies

Collaborative. Creative. Innovative.

Research at TRU is making a difference. Many of our most important research discoveries stem from community-based research questions that result in real-life solutions with immediate and far-reaching impact. They influence policy, enrich culture, improve programs and build more vibrant cities. Our faculty are engaged in training the next generation of world-class researchers at both the graduate and undergraduate level.

TRU is one of the province’s leading research universities, and is a proud member of the Research Universities Council of British Columbia.

About D-L

Weyt-kp. (hello to all). I'm a writer/editor/content specialist in Marketing and Communications (MarCom). It's my pleasure to research, collaborate, interview, edit, proofread, write, commiserate and laugh when creating stories about diverse topics of interest to the TRU community. Throughout 14 years of BCOU in Burnaby and TRU in Kamloops, I've worked variously as a contract editor, course production technician, copyeditor, course editor and writer/editor, serving on institutional committees and studying on-campus and online (earning two credentials). I enjoy exploring the university and Kamloops, talking to people and writing. Everyone has a story and everyone has something to share about what they've learned. Me7 wíktlmen (see you all later).
