TRU seeks community input on internationalization plan

March 8, 2024

Thompson Rivers University (TRU) wants Kamloops and area residents to contribute their thoughts on global education at two public consultations on the university’s inaugural Strategic Internationalization Plan (SIP).

TRU invites anyone interested to attend either of next week’s meetings on campus that will contribute to shaping the future of internationalization at the university. The SIP is a comprehensive roadmap that will guide TRU’s approach to international education, mobility, partnerships and development for the next decade, aligning with its mission.

Internationalization involves including worldwide perspectives throughout the university, from curriculum development to cross-cultural experiences, from global research to international partnerships. The goal is to make TRU a more interconnected and globally aware institution that provides a widely diverse learning environment.

The SIP addresses the need for a university-wide strategy to navigate the evolving landscape of global education, ensuring a stronger, more interconnected future for the TRU and Kamloops community.

The sessions coincide with the university’s annual IDays cultural celebration, which highlights the diversity of people on campus.

The public is invited to attend:

  • Wednesday, March 13, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. (in person)
  • Thursday, March 14, 5 – 6:30 p.m. (in person)

Both events take place in the Alpine Room of the Campus Activity Centre

Parking in lots H or N

Anyone interested in participating is asked to register ahead of time.
