On Tuesday, June 28 at 4PM we at the TRU Students’ Union will be hosting a feedback session to hear from the community about the upcoming funding review for post-secondary education being done by the provincial government. This will inform our submission on this topic to the provincial government in mid-July.
We are engaged in this work because on March 31, 2022 the BC Government announced that it will be reviewing funding for the public post-secondary sector over the next year with a final report being released in Summer 2023. We have lobbied for this review for many years – including submitting over 4000 pledges of support from individuals in the TRU and broader Kamloops community as well as 30 letters of support from municipalities and non-profits in our region.
The first step in the engagement process is for institutions, student societies, and others to make written submissions. We are committed to ensuring that our submission includes community voices and perspectives.
With this in mind, we are inviting interested students, faculty, staff, or community members to join us on Tuesday, June 28 from 4PM to 5:30PM for a feedback session to help inform our post-secondary funding review submission.
After RSVPing you will receive a follow-up email with further details on the session.
