The Distinguished Alumni Award Program

Since 1995 the Alumni Association has honoured both graduates ( Alumni from Cariboo College, University College of the Cariboo, Thompson Rivers University and TRU Open Learning) and Friends of TRU who have received a degree, diploma, certificate or earned 18 credits toward a degree and distinguished themselves on a regional, national or international level in one or many of the following areas (but not exclusive to):

  • Academic Achievement
  • Arts and Culture
  • Athletic Achievement
  • Professional Achievement
  • Public Service
  • Service to the Community
  • Service to the University
  • Significant contribution to Trades or Industry

Successful recipients will be hosted at the TRU Distinguished Alumni Awards Dinner, where alumni, staff and faculty friends and colleagues will pay tribute to their achievements and call to the public’s attention the vital role that TRU graduates play in the social and economic lives of their communities.

The Alumni Association office administers the Distinguished Alumni award(s). The selection committee reviews all the nomination packages and selects the award winner(s) who are then notified of the decision of the committee.

Please print out a nomination package online or contact the Alumni office for a package at 250-828-5498 and return it to the Alumni Association office.
