A conference is a space for researchers and students to present and discuss their work. It’s a great way to meet people in your field of study. To be able to present at conference, it’s probably best to work with a Faculty or Staff member at TRU but you can always apply to present on your own. TRUSU also offers funding to both attend and present at a conference, so check out their webpage under Grants.
TRU offers many amazing hands on workshops to develop your skills! Check out the events page to see what workshops are taking place. Be sure to explore multiple workshops even those that may be outside of your field of study as you are building your skills!
Engaging in undergraduate research will increase your academic and professional success, and enhance your ability to think critically, ask tough questions and search for compelling answers. Research also acts as service to the community, so get involved. This is your education journey, make the most of it! Check out the Undergraduate Research page for more information.
Undergraduate Research Assistants
Members of the TRU faculty often require students to assist in their own research. If you are interested in this opportunity, please speak with your professors in your faculty, school or department.

Publications are a great way to share your academic work with the public.
