Fund the Future is a campaign to address underfunding at Thompson Rivers University. Our goal is to have the provincial government re-evaluate the formula that is used to determine TRU’s funding level to better reflect how our university has grown over the last decade.

We have been making community presentations across the university region in Kamloops, Ashcroft, Williams Lake, Chase, and everywhere in between. We presented to municipal governments, businesses, non-profit organizations, religious organizations, aboriginal bands, and others, to talk about underfunding at TRU and how we can work together to fix this problem.”

Fund the Future Petition

  • Because TRU has been underfunded by $80 million compared to the average institution in BC over the last five years;
    Because inadequate funding means reduced student services, larger classes, and higher fees;
    Because TRU contributes an estimated $650 million to the regional economy and is vital to our collective economic future;
    Because the TRU funding formula has not been reviewed in over a decade;

    I call on the BC provincial government to reevaluate the funding formula for TRU to reflect its mandate.
