The TRU Students’ Union is excited to continue connecting TRU Students and community leaders through its Breaking Bread series this fall. Through Breaking Bread the Students’ Union curates conversations on important topics with diverse community leaders and small groups of students to build community, share perspectives, and foster connections. In 2020 the sessions are being held virtually.

 In early August the Students’ Union held their first virtual session of the year with CBC radio’s Doug Herbert for an illuminating discussion on the role of media in 2020. Students covered topics including sharing what they thought should be responsibilities of media organizations in times of crisis, considering the challenges of social media, and many other areas.

There are two upcoming discussions with limited seats available for TRU students to join as part of the Breaking Bread series.

On Wednesday, September 23 from 1pm-2:30pm join local counsellor Deandra Dey for a virtual discussion on the evolving role of counselling in the modern world. To learn more or RSVP to the discussion click here.

On Tuesday, October 6 from 1pm-2:30pm join Tosh Southwick for a virtual discussion on Indigenization in Higher Education. Tosh is part of the Kluane First Nation and is the Associate Vice President of Indigenous Engagement and Reconciliation at Yukon University. To learn more or RSVP to the discussion click here.
