TRU Announcement

Winter Course Delivery Update

Dear TRU Students,


I hope this message find you and your loved ones in good health. I also hope you were able to enjoy the summer months and are refreshed for the new academic year.

With fall semester now one week away, I’d like to provide you with an update on the delivery of our winter courses.

As with the fall semester, for winter, a small number of courses will continue to be delivered in person and on campus with strict safety protocols in place. These courses will appear in the course schedule with buildings and room numbers as well as scheduled days and times. All other courses will be delivered virtually.

Most courses that are delivered virtually will be a blend of scheduled virtual meetings (i.e. synchronous activity) as well as assignment of work that does not require specific meeting times (i.e. asynchronous activity). These courses appear in the course schedule with the building listed as “virtual delivery”.

The course schedule still includes times and days for courses delivered virtually to ensure conflict-free timetables; however, not all weekly scheduled meeting times will be required for synchronous activity in all courses.

Instructors will identify during the first week of the semester which, if any, weekly scheduled times will require virtual synchronous activity.

In selecting virtual delivery courses, you should note that you may be required to participate virtually in synchronous activity during the scheduled days and times indicated.

Thank you for the resilience you have shown through the changes we have had to make as a result of the pandemic. I am confident that TRU is best prepared to ensure your safety while continuing to deliver you a high quality education.

Wishing you the very best for a successful fall term.


In peace, health and harmony, 

Christine L. Bovis-Cnossen
TRU Provost and Vice-President Academic and Research
