University of Choice for Aboriginal Students

With 10 percent—roughly 1,600 Aboriginal students on campus—it is clear that TRU is the university of choice for Aboriginal students. Whether upgrading high school courses, or completing a trades or degree program, we focus on student strengths and offer a variety of services to help students succeed in their chosen program. It is our aim to include Aboriginal culture, history and knowledge in curricula, research and classroom activities.
