For the first time in over twenty years the BC government is reviewing how universities are funded across the province. On July 15, 2022 we at the TRU Students’ Union participated in the first step of this funding review process by making a written submission to government on behalf of our community.

Our submission covered a wide range of topics including recommending greater clarity on how the funding model works, a more systematic approach to funding across BC, a more clear articulation of the role of international students in the sector, and many other areas.

This document was drafted by the TRUSU Campaigns Committee and was informed by a focus group that included students, faculty, and staff held in late June 2022. We look forward to continuing to engage the TRU and Kamloops community over the next year as the BC Government consults the sector and the public on this important issue.
