  Posted on: November 4, 2019

TRU Research: Committed to Community, 2018-19

What is research? At TRU, we believe research helps to inform, and to answer questions large and small. We believe that research is for everyone, and can be conducted by everyone. We believe in conducting research that is in service to our communities.

This seventh annual report on research is a celebration of the last 12 months of research efforts and accomplishments of faculty, students and community research partners.

Committed to Community highlights ground-breaking work in the sciences, the humanities, the social sciences, law, nursing, education and business, and once again pays special attention to the growing contributions of our researchers and their students in community-driven projects.
